Details of my shop will be added once I have respectable photos available.

My shop is built around my Shopsmith Mark V Model 520 and a rather complete selection of support equipment.

Ditto, I've been looking forward to seeing Dusty's workshop for quite some time.
Knowing Dusty from another forum, it will be worth the wait.

I do believe you have seen everything in my workshop so don't be disappointed. There is nothing new there except maybe some sawdust. I've just got to take the time to sort through the various photos and pick out some that might be meaningful on this forum.

Have you taken time to view some of the absolutely fabulous shops that these guys have. I mean big. I was looking at one today that is to die for. A 40×50 foot print in a two story barn looking building. Fabulous and don't forget to look at the equipment.

Sorry, I don't know whose it was. I was too taken back to recall.

Dusty you have a really nice shop space in which to work. It is so well organized and you have really nice collection of hand tools to go with the Shopsmith. And everything is so neat. But where is the sawdust? :)

You do have a nicely organized shop and I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Thank you, Scott, for your comments.

We can blame my high school industrial arts teacher for the lack of sawdust. I took shop classes for four years and during that time I picked up a bad habit; I clean up almost every day before I quit work in the shop.

You have a pretty nice shop yourself.

If I was there, I would have to do one thing. I'd turn your planes onto their side. I know that this is a very debatable issue but I was taught not to store them on their face. It supposedly increases the risk of damage to the blades. Many, many craftsmen disagree.

Dusty I have to confess that I "try" to clean mine up as well. I only have a 3/4 hp dust collector that does very little to control the sanding and other fine dust though (which reminds me that I have to do some sanding today and have to do it inside since it is raining). But one of the points of emphasis I had instilled in me from several woodworking classes that I have taken is to clean up the shop before quitting. Like you I try to do so but I also have another incentive. My shop is located adjacent to our finished basement and, needless to say, I get yelled at for "tracking sawdust in the house" from my wife if I don't clean up. :)

I have debated the plane issue as well. I generally store them on their sides but I was napping when I took these pictures. I think that I had gotten them out to replace the irons and blades (f I remember right???) with some new sets from Hock. Needless to say I show the Hock blades more respect than I did the Stanley's. I appreciate the reminder, though.

Thanks for the comment about the shop. That is nice to hear.

Great shop Dusty!
I'd seen bits & pieces before but it is nice to put the images together.
I've got a long ways to go… just to get my garage/shop that clean.

Thanks for sharing.

Good looking shop Dusty! I tend to keep the sawdust cleaned up as well. The wife keeps the rest of the house dirty enough with her yarn making that in the ONE spot I can control, I keep it in the manner I like… My tools all have places, and they each go BACK to those places when I am done. Mess stresses me out, so when I am relaxing, it's the last thing I want to encounter!

My tools and equipment all have their proper storage location too. However, it is seldom that they will be found there. I always put them close to where they belong, especially when I am about to take pictures. My high school shop teacher would not always be pleased.

Wow!, Dusty. That's a great looking shop. Lots of fine equipment and tools and everything looks like it's in it's own place. Very good.
