Workshop Information

"The Wobbly Leg Workshop"

2 years into this hobby and im hooked. So here's a quick look aorund …

Picture 1 - My first tablesaw, a Craftsman, attached to a built in cabinet which was so kindly left over to me upon moving into the house. The outfeed table is of my design and my own hack-eration, but its flat and she works. To the right is a 1970-ish Rockwell 8 speed bandsaw. I picked this old gem up out of a house we were tearing down at work which had been flooded.

Picture 2: A plane till, shelf for my drills and circ saw and the Hitachi CMS sitting along side 8' of table.

Picture 3: Hand tool cabinets, my first shelf iever built which houses some antique tools once belonging to my grandfather and his father.

Picture 4: My back to the tablesaw. Show my 1st attempt at a workbench, my baseball / basketball/ football TV, a bench top jointer, slow speed grinder, and if you look close …. pile of parts and pieces.

Picture 5: My best CL find, a G1019 grizzly bandsaw, a frued router and table, also seen … a bad spot for clamps.

Picture 6: A look with my back to the TV. The workbench, a project in process, the furnace, hot water heater, oil tank and radon filtration system … none of which were my design.

This is a nice looking shop that you have. It looks like you have done well with the space that you have available. Bummer about having to share your shop space with the "non-essentials" such as the furnace, water heater and oil tank but I guess they have to go somewhere.

You have added some nice work surfaces and storage cabinets to your shop. I have come to like the design that you have for your miter saw station. I built one similar to the project that was featured on the New Yankee Workshop. And, while it works fine, I have come to realize that using extensions for support limits the usefulness of the bench when the saw is not being used. Yours is a superior design, in my opinion since you get full use of the bench when the saw is idle.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

Nice setup. I had to actually look up that model # with Grizzly. That thing sure looks like a Central Machinery #67595 fitted with a different tension knob / rod. I have the #32208 and it's a pretty good saw, I bet you are going to be happy with that thing for a lot of years to come.

Thanks JR. Wow - its funny how things change in almost 2 years. The shop looks quite a bit different and the cordless phone in my till in pic #2 has been replaced by a more fitting tool. Lol. I never noticed that.
