Yes a little known fact, from Detroit we actually drive south when crossing the boarder to Canada.
When I’m there I try to comment on how I’ll have to head up north to Michigan. My grandparents
were from Ottawa, Ontario and Hull, Quebec Canada. I fly a Canadian flag just below my USA flag
at home. A fringe benefit is Canadian TV is available in Michigan. Great Olympic and Hockey coverage
Plus the Red Green Show in reruns. Some great woodworking topics there.

Nice shop! But it’s so clean you’d better post some more projects to convince us you actually use it. :-)

I just bugged him to post some more at Ms. Debbie's shop tour of this workshop. But it is Michigan and it’s football season, so I guess we will have to wait and see.

You have a gorgeous shop and a nice collection of tools. And I did see a little sawdust under the table saw so I am sure that you actually use the shop. :)

Thanks for the post,

That is a great shop. You have a nice toybox there. Is that a crankshaft lamp in the background of #2?

Crankshaft lamp, yes it came from a 6 cylinder Lycoming helicopter engine. Just out of tolerance.
a bit of history. It’s not from the M.A.S.H. pictured but quite old.

Great shop Gary. The dust collection on the mitre saw looks interesting, how does it work for you? Could you post a pic or two with more detail?

I love your miter saw station design. I made mine out of MDF and dimensional lumber. I think I have found a new project!!!..
