Ok, I know what you are going to say so don’t bother. These shots were taken the summer before last while I was doing some major out door work. The shop became a catch all; I’ve since made some changes, the table saw, planer and jointer are on wheels, the lathe table has been made smaller and a new more efficient miter saw station has been built. Mind you the shop is normally cluttered since it is so small, only 9’ X 19’. I’m not normally very organized with my toys but I do know where every thing is and I can tell instantly if something is missing or been moved.

Ok here are a couple of updated shots of the miter saw station, and this is an average working mess. The thing with the hinges is a flip down grinder, gets it off the bench nicely.

Dave, it does look like you have a lot going on in there. I like the windows that you have in the shop. It does look like you get quite a bit of natural light through them. When I am in the middle of a long build my shop gets in a similar shape. It seems that every hand tool I own migrates to the assembly table and then I don’t have room to work on the project there. Of course this leads my wife to offer her help in straightening up my shop. I appreciate the help but then have trouble finding my hand tools after they are stored in whatever drawers happen to be available. You also have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

As a “neighbour” (Hanwell, NB—near Fredericton) thanks for sharing your shop photos. I will send some from my space in the next wek or so …thought I’d wait until the Chorizo hanging over my router table is moved ;>)

Re shop tools…...I recently debated (with myself) about whether to get a fancy dovetail jig…or to do it by hand. In the end Santa ordered a Japanese style dovetail saw (Rip-Tooth Dozuki) and a Japanese dovetail chisel from Lee Valley. If anything, I’ll have some finely cut firewood ;>)

I don’t see anything out of place … your shop is bigger and better organized than mine!

Nice shop, doenent matter what any shop looks like as long as you know where everything is, mine is like that from time to time. Thanks for the tour.

Hey Dave,
The shop is your kingdom..the rules and laws are set by you…no one else.

Have your say...
