Watson, LA 70706
United States

My workshop is pretty basic: 12’ x 24’ portable building. I added a second layer of 1/2” plywood over the stock 3/4” plywood floor (joists are 16” o.c., so it’s pretty sturdy), wired the building, installed wall insulation and sheathed the interior with 3/8” plywood. The two benches are government surplus desks (still have the GSA tags on them), topped with sacrificial MDF, but my plan is to replace the MDF with a 3” thick laminated yellow pine top on the front bench.

Shop power equipment includes Delta 10” tablesaw, 12” Delta bandsaw, 32” Rockwell drill press, 10” Craftsman radial saw, 10” Hitachi miter saw,Porter Cable router in shop-built table, 8” bench grinder, plus of course the usual assortment of portable and hand tools.

OK, took a pic this morning. Shop has been a mess since I finished the condo cabinets, just haven’t been able to get it back under control!
