Greetings LJs from snowy New Brunswick, Canada

Measure2x’s Workshop
I have enjoyed viewing members’ workshops and getting ideas how to organize mine, so I thought I should share.
I have been acquiring tools and gradually taking over a 2 car attached garage. The car (Julie’s) is now out in the snowy driveway and the pics show what I have so far. (Pink wall is because its the only insulation I could find at our HD to stick with carpet tape onto my exterior door). My next step is to convert my adjacent 13×24 ft. ‘study” into a glueup/finish area and for lumber storage.

FYI, tools are: Old Craftsman lathe; Freud router & table; old Craftsman ‘cabinetmakers series” 10 table saw (solid); Delta 14” bandsaw; Rigid 12” sliding mitre saw; Ryobi drill press & Ryobi sander (on sale); General mortise machine; Matika air tools; Kreg Pocket hole system (great tool) a Vika workbench ( + various handtools. Planning to make a 21st Century workbench next…...

Hey, I may even get to the point I can make something ;o)

best wishes,
Measure2x (Terry, Starlite Village—-Fredericton area, NB Canada)

Terry, it does look like you have a lot going on in there. And congratulations on taking over the entire garage as well as the future expansion plans. Julie must be a very understanding person. I have often said that I am glad we added a third garage in our walk-out basement that I converted into a shop. If I had to ask my wife to give up her garage space for my shop I would be outside before her car would be. Your bench looks a lot like my assembly bench when I am in the middle of a long build. It seems that every hand tool I own migrates to the bench and I don’t have any room to assemble my project.

You have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Great spacious workshop, nice machines and tools.
I think its ok if the car has to stay outside coz it is meant to be used outside and unsheltered.
