My shop is my garage. It has a natural gas furnace for heat, and a floor drain under each vehicle ( not shown in these pictures, and that get parked outside when spreading out when working on large projects.) Its wired with many 20a 120v circuits and half a dozen 30 to 50a 240v circuits. I just added a Grizzly 14” bandsaw to my collection of power tools. You can see my tool crib is my furnace room. I am in the process of acquiring some more hand tools, as I’d like to learn more about building chairs and furniture. I have mostly focused on kitchen cabinetry and larger pieces until now. In one picture, you can see my (redneck) steam box perched up on the wall above my tablesaw. I recently successfully steam bent some chair backs.

what’s with all the cars in the woodshops? Lawn mowers too?

move them out. sawdust is bad for them. I’ll think of some more excuses soon. :-)

Nice woodshop.

Good shop Pete! Lots of us have garage shops that we share with cars…’s a PITA but sometimes a necessary evil.

I like your shop. I especially like the idea of the speaker up in the corner of the ceiling. I like to listen to music while I work and that’s a nice idea.

I haven’t parked a car in my garage in nearly 12 years… heheh

Nice shop. Love the idea of chair making and steam bending. Keep at it!
