« Part 9: Pictures from inside the New Shop Part 10 of The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining series no next part

I’ve been working on the inside of the shop, setting-up the machines, work benches, etc…took some pictures this afternoon and thought I’d update you guys and gals….took longer than I’d expected, but now I can get back to woodworking…

Click the following link to see pics of my new shop….

You can click the Tour the Shop button on the bottom of this page to see the construction page documenting how I built the shop from the ground up.

I can tell I’ve got a LONG way to go on collecting clamps! That is nicely done. BTW: My momma and two
older brothers were born in Cooper. I grew up visiting on weekends and got way too acquainted with a
goose neck hoe handle to ever want to stay. Now I live in Arkansas….where my grandaddy and his family
left in 1892 to move to Delta County, TX…...full circle.

Hey Sawhorse I did not know you were a lumberjock? I love your website and frequent it quite often and low and behold you’re a lumberjock too! Good looking shop I must incorporate my office into my next shop for that must be handy.

Wow, that is a really nice shop. I would need a roadmap to get around in it. But I guess Texans always do things in a big way.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow – that is a really nice shop. I was in my sardine can sized shop today and I’d love to have that kind of space. Good for you.

Looks like a real nice shop! You are only about 45 miles north of me. I would like to stop by sometime
and check it out.

Thanks for the kind words everyone…john, Scott Bryan and cajunpen – my first shop like most was in my garage, then I built one 12’ x 22’, then expanded that to 20’ x 22’, this time I decided to go alittle bigger and talller.

Yo biff_kpv, glad to know you’re a Lumberjock too, thanks for the kind words about my web site.

flippinfred – just keep looking out for those sales and deals, garage sales and flea markets, and deals from Rockler, Woodcraft, Woodpecker etc..around Christmas time. My clamp collection has been YEARs in the making and I don’t plan to stop now…you can never have too many clamps!!!

GaryK – I noticed when you joined Lumberjocks that you not that far away, been meaning to shoot you an e-mail I really like some of the projects you’ve posted and it would be great to discuss some ideas.
