Mainebarn's Workshop    


North Stonington, CT
United States

My “workshop” currently takes up part of my garage and part of my basement. Nothing fancy (actually pretty messy and unorganized right now). My major stationary tools include 3 vintage DeWalt radial arm saws, a small Craftsman table saw, 14” Jet bandsaw, old Delta 8” jointer, Delta 12” lunchbox planer, Craftsman drill press, Power King 9” lathe, and a 14” Sakura scroll saw.

I’m currently building a timber frame barn in Maine that will eventually be my workshop when we move there in a few years. Here are some slideshows of my barn/workshop project:

At the moment, I’m too embarrassed to show my current state of affairs—just tools crowded into the corner of my garage or in a messy basement. However, I just uploaded some photos of my (future) workshop. This is a timber frame barn I’m building in Maine. We plan to move there in a few years and this will eventually be my workshop.

P.S. added links to two videos so you can see lots of photos of my barn/workshop under construction.

Hi Mainebarn, you helped me a lot a couple of years ago over on another forum for rebuilding my DeWalt RAS. My Dewalt 1400 is totally rebuilt and up and running perfectly, thanks again. USAF1

So.. I’m in Maine too, Acton, Southern tip. That interior is so nice. Post and beam, rustic walls. It screams to be a woodworking shop. I learned to make Guitars at a school in Camden with this type or architecture. That being said, I was wondering. You must plan on insulating. You really have to in this state. A shame to cover things up. But 6” in those walls with some type of heat, wood, pellet, gas. whatever would make it a very cozy place to make wood chips in those long winters.

I’m fortunate enough to have a good space above a garrison style garage that is heated. I hope you have plans to do that. Thanks for posting.

Great to hear. I’m finishing up a few projects and hoping to get another RAS up and running soon.

Thanks. I built the frame exclusively with hand tools (down in CT where we currently live). I hauled the frame up to Maine and had an old fashion barn raising with the help of friends and neighbors. I did insulate it by applying rigid insulation on the outside—that way, it doesn’t cover up the wood and frame on the inside. I still have a bunch of work yet to do, but it should make a nice shop when I get it done.
