I have a basement shop. Like most shops, It’s a work in progress. Recently, I have added cabinets and finished one of the walls in knotty pine. I have a 10” cabinet saw, 12” planer, 6” jointer, lathes, scroll saw, drill press, etc. and quite a few hand tools. I’m also working on restoring an old 27” band saw.

Thanks for reading. I do enjoy the questions and comments.

Very impressive work shop. Nice work bench and a fleet of decent planes.
Looking forward to seeing more pictures of the shop and more projects from this shop.

Thanks for the kind words Woodworm. It’s good to be here, 3fingerpat. I am very lucky to have the space I do. I have 9 foot ceilings, and lots of room to work. I will post more pictures soon.

Welcome from the other side of the river. It’s good to see another with a healthy addiction to the old school.

9 foot… that’s great! I think mine are about 7 at best but always warm… you’ll definitely enjoy your time spent here.

Corey, you have a beautiful workbench and a wonderful collection of hand tools. Being versed in the use of hand tools is a time honored skill that many of us, who rely almost exclusively on power tools, have neglected.

It is wonderful to have the headroom that you do. It sure makes swinging 8’ boards much easier.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

I really like the plane storage. I will have to fool around with that concept.

Thanks, Chris, it’s gotten better since these pictures. I’ll have to repost some updated shots.

In case you didn’t know, there is a woodworker’s guild that meets monthly at the WoodCraft in New Berlin at 14115 W. Greenfield Ave. We meet the first Thursday of the month, and the topics are varied and interesting. We’re always looking for motivated members.

Work Safe,

Great shop. Where do your new cabinets sit? I love your tool storage ideas, especially the hammer hanger! You obviously take pride in your work. Great shop, and great work

I uploaded some new pictures that show the cabinets in relation to the rest of the shop. The hammer hanger is easy to make if you have a scroll saw or band saw. I love making hangers for my tools, I like to be able to get to them easily when I need to.
