Well, it’s been almost two years since I first posted pics of my shop. I figured it was time to add a couple of new pics to show progress. There have been several additions since the last shots as you can see if you compare photos. Such as the bandsaw, lathe, spindle sander, planer, etc. Oh, and an eight foot bench against the wall. I still have aspirations of making a proper woodworking workbench, but that will come in time. Lately it has been a matter of figuring out which tool works best where. These shots are my latest configuration, which has yet to be tested! I’m starting to consider mobile bases…

Stan, this looks pretty good. It appears as if you have plenty of room in your shop and it is well organized. I bet it won’t take long for you to fill it up if you keep adding on tools. But new tools are a part of the fun. I am looking forward to seeing updates to your shop.

A good work shop clean and organized with room for more tools if you wish.

Thanks for the comments! I’m happy with how it has turned out so far. It was all floor to ceiling storage shelving on the right hand side before I started. That has now been moved to accommodate my shop.

I soon plan on building a large workbench. I am contemplating putting it on locking wheels so I can easily move it if need be. Any thoughts on this? Good idea? Bad idea? I also plan on making the bench slightly shorter/the same height as my table saw so I can slide the wood straight onto the table when ripping on the table saw. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hey buddy!

Nice shop! and what a fine set of bins…. :)

So I’m thinking the locking casters are a great idea for an outfeed table for your t-saw, but don’t forget that if you’re doing any sanding/planing or even hand sawing on a piece clamped to your workbench, the casters might offer less stability than if you went for the weight of something like a Roubo bench. I have seen a few benches where they seem to work – I suppose it matters the type of work you plan on using it for.

By the way, I found this guy’s shop the other day – looks like we’ve got some catching up to do in the tool department!
