I started building this wood shop in Jan/2009…. It’s been fun and seems to function very well….

Rob, this is a nice shop space in which to work. You have organized it well which is a necessity for those of us with smaller sized shops. I really like your table saw set-up. I thought seriously about getting the Incra fence for my Craftsman saw since the fence leaves a lot to be desired but opted instead to just get another saw.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Scott…. Thanks for the nice comments…. It is a very limited space for the amount of machinery I have in there…. it’s only 24’X12’....It seems to be very functional, so far… I still have to build a loft for sheet goods… I have a design that you’ll be able to load sheet goods from the garage door and unload from the saw/router workbench area using a pully system…. Frankly, I was nervous about the saw/router configuration as I’ve never seen one like it… It has proven to be a unique and precise set up….. I had thought about buying a new saw but this delta 10” I have still cuts pretty good… I’ll upgrade at some point… but I won’t need a fence system….

Happy and safe woodworking…

Love the setup and it looks like you have planned it from the start and not had it grow with you? I love my Incra and I don’t think that some of the projects I make would have been so easy without it! Cutting 1/16” strips for example. IT makes my old saw a precision instrument !!!
I look forward to seeing great things from You
Kind regards

Hi Larry…

Thanks for the nice comments…. This is my first real shop…. I had a terrible accident about 5 years ago (had to retire) and have finally recovered enough to start doing stuff again…. I’ve always loved woodworking but have always worked off the ground….LOL… Its fun having a shop to be creative…and hang out in…. I do have some projects planned to improve this shop… I guess it’s never finished…. I’m going to do a test cabinet for my portable planer w/expanded in-feed and out-feed….I’ll sit where the radial arm saw is now positioned….I’m selling that beast….I think I can do everything I’ll need to do on the table and chop saws…..I’m considering using the top of the tool cabinet someone recently posted for the wall portion of this project…... I’m hoping to get an idea on how well I’ll do in making some kitchen cabinets… I think I’ll try pocket screws joints for the boxes…. I’m also building a sheet good loft at the garage door entrance…. I have a design thought that will allow me to load the wood using a pully system ….droping at the door…and also alternate drop at the saw/router area for unloading ….I haven’t quite figured out how I’ll engineer this thing or if it’ll work…..LOL… I’ll probably be doing this soon as I’ll need to start storing some sheet goods….. I’ll be sure to post it …..

I’ll be looking forward to seeing your future projects… the stuff you have pictured is wonderful work…

Best regards….

I like your shop its well planed out, I am sure you are still having other ideas about reconfiguring your shop but when your space is limited it forces you to become more focused. thanks for the pictures.
God Bless

Hey Rob thank you for the complement on my shop. I am not guite done with it yet. How do you keep yours cool in the summertime especially in Florida? Some one told me to insulate it, However the guy in Lowes told me if you insulate with the fiberglass it will hold in moisture, because of the metal. I have a few fans and a small air conditioner. but in the hot day it is still pretty hot..

Rob, I think that that’s a very nice shop. You have lots of tools and equipment and that is a very neat building that you have built. Great work.
