My shop is not actually my shop. It belongs to the Department of Labor. I am an Instructor at the Guthrie Oklahoma Job Corps Center. The shop is 60’ x 100’ with 16’ ceilings. Half of it is shop and half is storage, classrooms, and my office. It has dust collection that is being reworked over the next few weeks. We our constantly updating and renovating the shop. We might come in one morning and just decide we no longer like the way the router bit cabinet looks and set to changing it. Our newest such thing was the way we stored our hand held power tools. We went from a ruff shelving system too a three cabinet enclosure. Each tool has a cut out shelf that allows it to fit there and only there. Plexiglass doors. We are also working on a large hand tool cabinet. You may notice that there is no lumber storage around the shop. We are lucky enough to have a seperate building just for that. It is 40×60 with 20’ Ceilings.

Man I think JobCorp is one of the best programs, It would be great to see some of your students projects, as well as yours. Your doing good my friend!
Take care, and tell those craftsmen to get busy!

You have a wonderful set-up in which to work and some nice tools to use as well.

Thanks for the shop tour. I really appreciate it.
