Headingley, MB R4J 1A7
Canada

Here are a few shots of my shop and future furniture and speaker production facility. I have only been in it four months, so it may be a bit sparse. I have been mostly developing tooling and jigs for a run of G & G inspired dining tables. Look out, here I come, after 6 wonderful years of raising two of the most beautiful boys in Canada, it’s my time to rock.

Nice large workshop. Looks like a great spot.

Is that a workbench made from a shuffleboard table? I am a big fan of reused/recycled material…

Yes that is a recycled shuffleboard table. It was $20 added to the house price in our first house. It was exactly why I wanted it.

I thought I would add a few photos of my shop after I have been in it for a year. Business is good, but my days are busy as I spend much of my time tending to my boys whilst my wife brings in the bacon. Next year (Sept. 2014) the youngest boy will be in full time school, so I will have more time in the day then. When they’re in bed, it’s usually my time to crash too, instead of making dust in the shop. At age 49, much of my get up and go has got down and….well..you know. Anyway, here’s the pictures. Some notes: all machines are on wheels to move around. Here’s some of my wood storage including my major patrons exotic burls. Two side by side table saws with t square fences. Both Kings, one has needed some attention now and then. But, the cabinet saw was a Kijiji find for $250 (220 v, 3 hp, 3 belt, 550 lbs. mint saw, made after King got their act together – it’s a hell of a saw!) Notice my 3 tilt top table saws – one is a Allatt and Mastercraft combo that I regularly use, it’s from the 1940’s (apparently, I have the only one known to exist, the Allatt tilt top saw that is, one 8” Craftmaster and a 10” Home Craft (Delta). I seem to have some strange need to acquire table saws, weird, but I’m sure some of you Jocks will understand my affliction. And finally, note my home made locking fence on the bandsaw and my home made fence on the jointer. The Craftsman jointer was a $50 find, minus the fence, but I can honestly say it is best 6” jointer I have ever had, and I have had a few over the years.
