Davenport, IA
United States

Here is my “shop” if you can call it that. Its located in my basement with the only access being a small near vertical staircase. Its a work in progress as i have daily ideas on how to improve the layout and place hoarded tools.

The biggest challenge i face everyday along with lack of size (as we all do) is the floors are pretty sloped and uneven. So that causes a unique problem i haven’t seen a lot of people have to deal with. That has forced me to come up with some weird solutions that allow me to have level-ish work surfaces and operate without to much messing around. Most solutions are mounting things to the walls and building from that. The walls themselves aren’t all that flat but much easier to compensate than the floors.

I will try to list out the major tools

-Ridgid R4512 table saw w/custom 80/20 fence and integrated outfeed top
-Powermatic 54HH 6” jointer
-Wen 3966 14” bandsaw
-Wen 6552 13” planer
-Hitachi C12RSH miter saw
-Frankenstein HF 2HP dust collector
-HF drill press
-Wen 3410 air filter

Any questions feel free to ask and if you are in the area feel free to stop by and ill show you around.

Thanks
-Pat

Yes, it was somewhat of a proof of concept using cheapo ebay strips. I plan on using more legit strips to increase the output even more. Having the ceiling so short somewhat limits hanging shop lights and i got tired of injecting mercury in my scalp when i would break one when i stood up.

Yes that part is not fun. Getting 4×8 3/4” MDF down there is nothing i would wish on my worst enemy.
