Workshop Information

Location
United States
As a third (probably more) generation wood worker I have the luxury of using my father's and grandfather's shops. Both had more time to accumulate tools than me. Luckily both live within a few miles of me and love to share their tools, knowledge, and occasionally dinner. By day I'm a middle school technology education teacher. So I've also got the school's shop to work in also.

When I do work on projects at home its in my basement shop. Like a few other LJs I share my workspace with the washer and dryer, the boiler, water heater, storage for holiday decorations, and the cat's litter box. My space in the corner is more tailored towards home improvement than fine woodworking. None the less it's a good space to tinker on things and listen to a baseball game on the radio.

The work benches are two recycled 36" solid core exterior doors. I made the frames out of construction lumber and half lapped the joints. The longer of the two is 13' long and I made it tall enough for me, at 6'4", to work comfortably on. The shorter bench is the same height as my miter saw and works great for supporting long stock. They're both sturdy and give me some storage space underneath.

Adam, how about posting some pictures of your shop(s) when you get an opportunity. Tours of other shops are always welcomed.

Adam, this is a nice looking shop that you have put together. You have organized it well and the pegboard is a good idea. It makes an economical wall covering and organizes hand tools well. I put it up along the front wall of my shop. The windows are a plus in my book as well. They let in some natural light, which I find easier to work under.

You have a nice collection of tools to play with. Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
