Location: Rapid City,SD

Retired in 2016, Was not able to find a quality toy chest for our grandchildren in the area, so, I started a woodworking shop. Keeping old fashion quality in mind. Solid wood only, No plywood or MDF board. and No screws nails or staples ( screws only to attach hinges and hardware ). What started as a hobby, turned into a overblown hobby and a business, with customers that are looking for quality.

I found the Lumberjock’s web site while doing some searches. Checked out some of the projects that other woodworkers have done, Then checked out the photos of other woodworkers shops. It interests me on how others set up their own shops. I spend on average of 20 hours a week in my shop. My shop is 14’x14’. The only equipment not in a fixed position is my planer. I have to slide it out two feet to use it. My Grizzly table saw is in the center with a 4’x4’ workbench that doubles as a out feed table. Everything else has fixed locations along the outer walls. I do have a 8’x10’ storage room for portable power tools and supplies, also a separate 8’x20’ room for gluing, clamping and finishing. Just delivered a Red Oak Hope Chest, Next project is 2 Hickory and 5 Red Oak Adult Memorial boxes, Then 10 Mahogany Pet Memorial Boxes, after these I have to start on a Cedar Chest. I probably should post some pictures of my shop.

Have your say...
