I think we have some folks who would be very competitive. (I’m not one of them)

I wonder if they would be interested in Tony’s shop…. even though he is outside of North America.

Bob…I think you’re shop definately presents some unique solutions. Maybe in the area of potential first aid solutions. LOL…just kidding, my friend. I’m feeling snarky today.

LOL…some day there will be a chain of events like that movie where fate is killing off the actors…my saw will kick back a piece into the band saw switch….it coming on will hit a chisel I left on the table….the chisel will fly through the air cutting the extension cord on the wall….the cord will fall knocking over the halogen lamps…..they will fall into the shelf of leftover paints…stains and other toxic, flammable chemicals….the resulting explosion will blow me into the next county …..where I’ll be run over by a truck.

Now here is what I want to build.

Bob,

Hi all

I have contatced Wood Magazine and offered information onm my workshop – Thanks guys for the Heads-Up

Bob. I like the forward planning. just be careful of that post behind the table saw. Have you got the space to cut 4’ wide and 8’ long to the Right of the blade. You should be able to span 18’ easily without central supports – they realy to limit layout. My span (without suuport) is 6.6m (21.5’) and that can support over 3’ of snow…..

Hehe…this is just a dream Tony…maybe in 10 years or so. It’s also very conceptual. The central bench would be much beefier with storage underneath. All the tools would be on casters so the saw could be moved out slightly to accomodate large panels. All the larger tools would able to be rolled into position and have the table as infeed/outfeed support. But alas it is just a dream….maybe someday.

By the way…all the tools and timber framing you see are components in Sketchup. If you are thinking of laying out a new shop it’s a great time saver.

OK – Bob – I have tried sketch up, but could not get on with it – I still use Visio for my 2-D Layouts ( http://poydatjatuolit.fi/index_files/WorkshopAndFinnishingRoom.htm ) KEEP DREAMING

Some day I’m going to spend some time with Sketchup, but it’s going to take more than a day for this cabbage head to learn it.

You guys might like what I’ve done. I’ve incorporated a 24’x24’ garage into my “fix-it-all” workshop/woodshop and can still park two cars inside.Everything tucks, rolls or stores against the walls which allows the floor space to park the cars. (One of those being a full size F-150!) Even the table-saw folds up! I designed my central workbench from “Swedish style plans” then placed it on casters, which allows me to position it anywhere to accomodate any project. It also serves as a storage center for most of my power tools. This bench fits neatly against a wall, alongside my “fixed: L-shaped bench that I use for other “Mad-scientist” stuff. IE: electrical repair, brazing/soldering, fixing the kid’s toys, etc. The attic serves as a “poor-man’s kiln” and has been great for storing wood. Sheet stock storage is a hinged box that rolls out from a wall. There’s also an adjustable wood rack above it.
Most all my ideas came from the various publications and re-designing the various plans to fit. I’m still in the process of “making it pretty” but if you’d like more info, just ask! Oh! There’s also a ‘fridge and the beer is always cold!

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!
