Workshop Information

Location
United States
I have been a woodworker and diy'er for about 10 years. My shop is located in my basement and it is now set up exactly as I envisioned it when we first moved in four years ago. Of course, I wish I had more space (especially for a bandsaw), but I was able to work with the unusual configuration. The main area is 14' x 15' with a stub area of 3' x 6' where I have my miter saw and planer. I store all of my hand power tools on shelves under the stairs. I have a sizable crawl space where I suspended the JDS 750-er air cleaner from the floor joists above.

My main focus recently has been on shop projects: planer cart, workbench cabinet, mortiser table/cart, dust collection system, blade guard w/dust collection and a sheet goods cut-off cart.

My very first official project was a cradle for my daughter which I made 10 years ago.

This is a nice looking shop that you have. It looks to be well organized and efficient. I like the way you have utilized the space that you have available, especially the crawl space. The mats certainly are a good idea and you have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed the tour.

Thanks all! Not ideal size, but as Sheryl Crow says…"its not getting what you want, but wanting what you've got". I can definitely work within it.

dbhost- that is a cone of string.
