All my life, I was always relegated to the basement, the garage or someplace damp, dark and dingy. So, when I decided to move to my new beachfront compound in the Dominican Republic, a daylight workshop with a view of the gardens and ocean was high on my list of “must haves”.

The workshop is on the left end of the first floor of my guest house. The only bad part is that when I have visitors staying in the guest house, I can’t make a lot of noise early in the morning or late at night.

I did the front with 18 foot wide sliding doors with screens. It looks out across my driveway, into the gardens and towards the ocean. A cool Atlantic breeze blows through when the doors are open.

I like spending a lot of time in here… even if I am just a hack.

Jet 10” Table Saw
Delta Mortising Machine
Jet JPM13 Planer
Hyundai 60KW Diesel Generator (necessary here)
Antique drill press of unknown brand
6” belt sander
Pneumatic nailers of various sizes
Lots and lots of hand power tools

Mark,

You have a nice shop space in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of space and you have a nice set of tools as well. And it looks like you have some sawdust on the floor as well. I had rather see that than a pristine shop which looks like it isn’t getting used. The biggest downside to the sawdust, at least from my perspective, is that when mine gets like this I can count on getting yelled at. :) But after 32 years I am used to it.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
