Easton, Pa 18042
United States

this is my attic workshop. Its not verry easy to get the tools up heer, but its the only space I have.
Pic 0ne is my shop as you enter from the stairs. Pic two shows my work bench router table and the new assembly table. the tops of the assembly table and router table are made from impermiable lab bench surface, a very slick surface and glue wont stick to it. Pic three shows my 1948 sears and roebuck jointer. Pic 5 is a 1953 dewalt 9” ras. Pic 6 is my newly accuired 10” dewalt ras not sure of age other than the late 1950s.
Im up here as much as posible. Hope you enjoyed my shop. 14” bandsaw not shown to heavy to get up there. Its in the neighbors basement.

Thanks for sharing. Looks well organized and a nice hideaway. Love that old radial arm saw, we had one like that in school. Keep making all those nice gifts!

This looks like a great hide away. I have a 1970, 6” jointer never used and still in the original wood shipping crate bought it awhile back can’t bring myself to remove it from the crate. I thought it was old does yours work well?

That is a real working shop and your great projects are proof of that. Great natural light and quite roomy for an attic.

Have another great day,

Looks great, sure it’s a hassle getting tools up there but still, quite the secret little spot :)

Thanks Karson.
Hi RAH. The jointer works well but not at first, I had to sharpen the blades and make sue the outfeed was the same height as the blades. I only paid 20$ for it at a yard sale 2 years ago. You should uncrate yours, tools were ment to be used.
Thanks Lance. there is some good natural light up there but i also have two 4’/2’ high output floresents in the ceiling.
Thanks Damian. shhh! it is a seacret spot. My neighbors just cant figure out where all that noise is comming from.
Thanks MsDebbie.

My shop’s in my basement and it is enough of a pain taking equipment DOWN the stairs so I can’t even imagine this. Bless you Bryan. This certainly speaks for your woodworking enthusiasm. Great getaway!

Man Bryan;

I can see it must be difficult to get equipment and lumber in there , as well as get projects out.

don’t try building a boat until you’re closer to the ground!.

Nice shop. Another “Home sweet home”!

You know something, it really looks like it has a nice feel to it. Cozy. I like it a lot. My shop has white walls, I’m going to have to do something to give it that rustic feel.

My shop is cozy and dose have a rustic feel to it. It also can Feel extreamly cold in the winter or really hot on the summer, But sacrifices are always made to have our private getaways even if they are attached on top of the house.

Can you post a picture of the entrance to your shop? I would like to see what size
opening you have. Has the location of your shop made it difficult for you to build certain
projects? I think you have a great shop space, and I applaud your ingenuity. Great Job!
