Wauwatosa, WI
United States

I’ve got a basement shop that measures somewhere around 18×11. We just moved into our house recently and there are a bunch of projects I’ve got going, including a renovation of the entire finished area of the basement, about 600 square feet. After that stuff is done, I plan to do a makeover of the shop space, including some proper lumber storage.

For someone just getting started, I’ve been pretty fortunate—my dad, who is disabled and can’t do woodworking anymore, gave me a lot of his tools and lumber. I’ve bought a few things on my own, but I’d be nowhere near where I am otherwise.

Highlights:
Delta 14” band saw
Delta contractor saw
Ridgid OSS
Delta 16” scroll saw
PC 690 router
Hitachi 10” miter saw
Delta 1HP dust collector
Delta air cleaner
Ridgid TP1300 planer

I agree with Splinterman. Tours of other shops are always an enjoyable post to see.

By the way, let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you as a member of the group.

WinterSun, this looks like you have put together a nice shop. It looks to be well organized and you have added plenty of storage to your shop. I also like the way you store your lumber. I have always felt that vertical storage gives better access to individual boards.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

Thanks, guys! :)

Splinterman—that little guy is a footstool to use for seated guitar playing. That’s another passion of mine. (note the guitar hanging at the right of the table saw photo—I plan to refinish that one along with some other modifications) It allows for better ergonomics when playing with the guitar upon my left leg. It’s almost done, just needs finish.
