This is my shop it 18’ x 18’ and was a flat roof garage. I started this spring and had help from my brother and father (who is 87 & still gets around pretty well) and I still have a lot of small things to do to finish up. Since these photos I have added heat which I need around here. All said and done I am pretty happy to get out of my dingy cellar.

What a well organized shop you have to work in!!! I really like the wooden walls. They add a nice touch to the shop itself and make it easy to hang cabinets on them. You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. With the addition of heating in there you have a wonderful set-up.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed the visit.

Great shop Scott, looks like you have room to do your thing…
like the ends of the blocks, I also have a 18 X 20 block building that was a summer ketchen and only has a 3’ door, I need to punch out the door to about 6’ so I can put some of my rolling stock in it..
Anyway you are lucky to have your dad to help you out, we can never do enough for them!

Thank you both for the kind words of the shop. I do like the wooded walls even though it cost me a lot more money to do but well worth it. I am still trying to get things organized and oriented to my liking I’ve already changed things around a couple of times. My father is still going strong at 87 (GOD bless him) and when I first starting doing the project He was mad at me for not asking him to help out. I told him to be careful what he wished for but he was there every day helping out and he was in his glory just being able to stay busy. thanks again Lou

Nice shop. I am currently setting one up of similar square footage, glad to see yours. VERY nice tablesaw. If I were to replace my Delta contractor’s saw today I would replace with the 50” General.

Thanks. I replaced a 15 year Delta contractor saw when I bought the General about 3 years ago. It was a 50” but when I had the shop in the basement I didn’t have the room and had to cut about 6” off it. It is a very well built saw and it makes very smooth cuts. I’m very happy with it.

Lou, nice shop, what lathe are you doing all of your lovely work on, I could not make out what it was from your shop pictures. Keep up the good work.
