Zanesville , ohio 43701
United States

I took down the pictues I originally had up but, have not added new ones after my reorganizanion over the holidays. I hope to update the photos soon. My shop is 16’x24’ and I have everything on wheels to optimize on the limited space. I have a three hp dust collection system by and the duct work is run under the floor. My three hp table saw and 8” jointer are made Steel City and have granite tops. Living in Ohio the humidity can rust anything very fast and the table saw and jointer tops I don’t have to worry about. Almost everything else in the shop came from I’ve really had a good experience with them. I am hoping to increase the foot print of the shop sometime next year to include a finishing room, spread out and add a lathe to my shop. Check back as time goes by and see the changes. Thanks for checking out my shop.

Love that miter saw work station. That is my very next shop build. If I have to balance another eight foot 2×4 while trying to cut it, I will scream. I see you have pistol protection for it. Nice tools…..........

It looks like you are using your shop space to its maximum potential. You have alot of nice tools. I keep an old ball bat on my wall for protection – I see you have upgraded to some serious iron. I look foward to seeing some nice projects in the future.

Thanks for your comments. I have to laugh at the gun comments because I had to open up the pictures to find out what you talking about. Thats what happens when you have an eight year old. LOL!
Red – that miter bench was a tuff build to make level and square. I wish you better luck than I had on mine and suggest that you use a close grain hard wood on the fence. Good Luck
Doug – I had a boss at the Arts and Crafts Shop located on a military base in Italy that had wheels on everything because he said that it was good to have change in your life. However you feel about that statement I dont know but, this shop has wheels so that I can use the equipment. Cheers.

I too, love your miter saw station… A real inspiration piece to be sure… I am wondering, what made you decide on baseboard heat in the shop?

To be very honest with you I but in baseboard heat because my father had an extra in his garage and he gave it to me. I’m not all that happy with it because it cost me about $40 a month to run in the winter. I have one window AC unit for the summer and it cost about the same to run. I don’t know what the answer is to heating and cooling efficiently. I can tell everyone here not to overlook insulation in the attic and walls of your shop. That made a big difference in my heating and cooling bill. I sure wish that I could have added a very small wood burner that allowed me to get rid of the scrap wood as well as heat the shop. Wood burners then create the problem of fire wood and the cost of purchasing the wood or the time it takes to go out, cut and split it. What’s your shop heated with and would you change it to something else if you could?

Looks like you’re a Grizzly man, too! I just picked up my first (new) piece from them; a 14” bandsaw. I still need to really give it a test, though. They seem to have a really great assortment of tools, and the prices seem pretty reasonable, too!
