Workshop Information

Location
United States
This is my shop in Folsom, California. I have room for up to 20 people for a lecture and I have room for six to twelve for hands on class. I have room for three to work on major projects. I have three large work benches and three small workbenches. The paint room and utility room are in separate rooms. The dust collector is in a separate building. The main building is 40' by 26' and the dust collector/lumber building is 10' by12'. I also have a 6' by 14' building for some of the Claro walnut slabs. I have stolen 160 square feet of the garage from my wife to set up the Rojek combo machine because I now have a Knapp combo split into two sections. It has three 6.2hp motors that run on three phase. Kick back with this saw will test the shop's wall strength after the wood gos thru you.

Gary, you have a wonderful shop space there. It looks to be well organized and I like the idea of making the assembly benches mobile. It adds functionality to the tool. Nice idea on the clamp storage as well. That is essentially unused space and storing them under the work table keeps them readily available.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

You have clean and prudently organized shop. Nice panel saw (it is Rojek Panel Saw,I supposed) work bench, assembly table, fire extinguisher also important, and everything is so inviting - makes a woodworker like you spend day in day out in the shop. Great shop. I enjoy viewing around.
You know, when viewing a woodworking shop I would first look for the table saw, band saw then work bench. Nice shop.

Hi Gary,

I can say first hand what a great shop you have after visiting today. It is much larger in person and is a great use of space. Thanks for taking time out of your day to talk shop and give me a tour and see some of the wonderful pieces that you have created.

I did not notice earlier that the big boy is a combi.. now only I see.

What do you mean "backwards" Roman?
The fence should be in front of the workpiece?

Different strokes for different folks but the euro sliding table saws, as per your question

The fence should be in front of the workpiece? Yes

at least thats how the guys on the other side of the big pond do it. I learned from them.

I know its seems odd, perhaps dangerous but it isnt. Kinda like getting over the natural propensity to lean backwards heading down a rocky mountain black diamond ski hill when in actual fact it works much better if you "Dive" head first down the slope!!!

Hi Gary,

I enjoyed the tour of your work and the shop. I bought one of those spokeshave kits from Veritas about three years ago and have not made it yet!
