Holland , MI 49423
United States

This is my small basement shop. It is an ever evolving space that is slowly getting to where I want it. I’ve been in this shop for almost 5 years now. Most of the tools and equipment came from Craigslist, antique shops, the side of the road etc. I love saving a tool that someone else thinks is junk. Most tools are brought back, modified and made to work better than original.

Great shop space, that can be a good feeling to safe a tool from the landfill, when it can be repaired. Those old models and names were made to last.

I get a certain satisfaction in fixing old junk. I really prefer working with older tools anyway.

Very nice, I had the same table saw and bandsaw as you for a long time. and I really like the Nicholson bench style.

is that a router table integrated into the corner of the bench along the wall? if so that’s a cool idea, does it work well in that space?

I actually really love that table saw! Its been upgraded with billet pulleys, a link belt and delta t square fence. It could use some more power but overall it does everything I ask of it. The band saw isn’t so loved but it does its job.

The router table is indeed sunk into the table top. It works really nice there with stuff up to about 3 ft long. Anything longer and I use the router out of the table.

At some point in going to sunk the miter saw into the table too. But, I’ve been saying that for 5 years so maybe not!

Jerry, you have a nice shop. Hear is an idea for the miter saw bench.

I riped down some 2×6 stock, and made the run outs about 3’ long on each side. Used a 1/2” by 6” board for the guide and I have a block with thumb screws to use as a stop block. Storage in the back and below.
