Welcome to lumberjocks, great shop and tools. I wished I had your windows, natural light.

Thanks for the welcome.

The main shop space is about 25×25, and there is also an attached one car garage which is extra deep.
The garage space contains my lumber storage and the cyclone. It also currently houses my bandsaw, a 8” compound miter saw, and the old ShopSmith, which is on my “to be sold” list.

Like a lot of shops, it is constantly evolving. The router table is the photos was just finished last fall. I may put some photos of it in the projects area on here. It was a fun build.

There is – of course – a story behind the shop. When we built the house, the other half let me build a separate shop but it had to be done in a way that a future owner might use it otherwise. And at the time we had a third car, which explains the garage. It also has a small full bathroom. It could easily be converted to a guest house.

Very nice. Another fine example of a common work height. That RAS looks like a beast!

Thanks. The RAS needs a bit of work (new bearings) but it is still in use for crosscuts. I usually rip on the table saw or the bandsaw. With a sharp blade the cuts of the RAS are very smooth. I also added dust collection to the RAS that makes it a fairly clean tool as well.

Bob -
The windows are great, I have them on three sides. The downside is, wall space for shelves and cabinets is limited.

Great set up. And the old tools seem to work out the best, reliable if well taken care of. Thanks for sharing. Yes agree to having everything at the same height.
