So things have been really slow trying to set this shop up. Spend most of my time picking up other work to make money for the shop, leaving me with no time to work on it. Well I get the machines wired and thought I would make a simple project to test them out. Here are some new shop pics and a simple desk. Its birch with haunched mortise and tenon joinry tapered legs and hand beveled top. Working on a fold up plastic table is not to much fun ha need to build a bench.

Ok Brian…. Nothing like making everyone a bit envious!

Ithink you have one hell of a shop space on your hands. How do you like the Grizzly tools so far?

The shop is 1000sqft. The jointer is a 12” spiral cutter grizzly. Seems to work really nice so far. But i need to look at the bed, I’m getting a grove on my boards. I think where the table is machined around the cutter opening one of those fingers has a burr or something. Other then that i am happy so far.

THANKS FOR TELLING THE JOINTER SIZE ….MAY I ASK THE PRICE OF IT AND HOW MANY PPL TO PUT IT TOGETHER ? My old Rockwell Delta 6” still works great , but I hear those spiral cutters are perfect for highly figured woods with little if any tear out , and I wouldn’t have to rip my wide stock down and glue it back together again any more !!! Did you forget to turn your dust collector on for the table saw ? L O L…. Awesome table too : )
