Workshop Information

Location
United States
12'6" x 27' basement shop. Two small storage spaces, one houses DC system and the household hvac(12'6" X 7'), the other is the space under the steps. I'll post photos when it doesn't look like a train wreck.
  • Update Jan 23, 2012
    The tables are cleared and some minor rearranging has been done. Enough to post anyway.

The power equipment I own is primarily inherited from my father in-law who passed on a few years ago.

  • late 60's AMT table saw (just after they went tiawanese damnit)
  • Late 50's Craftsman jointer (when they were a pride)
  • 60's Craftsman lathe (yet to be used by me)
  • 70's Packard band saw 14" no riser block
  • 1937 Walker-Turner drill press (re-built by me, I love that girl)
  • (2) 80's Makita miter saws 10" and 14" (she's scary)
  • Dewalt 735 planer
  • Router table w/ PC 890 motor and Woodpecker lift
  • Penn State Ind. Dust collector DC-3 650 cfm
  • 2hp Speedaire Compressor (oldie but you can't buy a more bullet proof machine)
  • I also own more hand tools than I have sharpened. planes chisels and the like
  • At last count I have 4 routers (incl. the Pc 890 in the table)(others are blah crapsman)

The majority of the wood in my rack is heirloom cherry. Felled, roughsawn, stickered and stacked by my father in-law over 25 years ago. I was able to make claim to it, and rescue it from a chicken coop in the Endless mountains of Pennsylvania. I was present the day Dad and his brother in-law Richard ran it through the wood-miser saw mill. This is the lumber for my Kitchen Cabinets. See my blog for more.

Recent un-employment shall give me time for housekeeping. Then I shall post. Too embarrassed of condition right now. I now have time to get a bit more serious, and create something again. I suppose I should assemble and post a tool list of sorts to accompany the photos.
Thanks for the interest.
My profile pic is my circa 1930's Walker-Turner DP, was a rust bucket when I got her.

Your shop is about the size of mine, and proves my 35th rule. The smaller the shop, the harder it is to keep organized.

You've got a lot of great equipment and "stuff."

Do you have any idea of what you're going to build with your wood?

Joe…The cherry will be left alone until I complete the cabinet doors. Due to the condition of the lumber, there will be considerable waste involved. (bad checks, live edges, some boring insect damage and so on) The lower shelf has some rosewood flooring leftovers I've earmarked for a jewelry box for my oldest daughter. That's in design stage, I'm learning SketchUp and having a blast with it. Box joints, integral wooden hinges and half blind dovetails are some of the ideas rolling around the shop floor.
Thanks for looking.
I've also discovered I'm not very adept at setting jointer knives to my liking. Need dial gauge I suppose.
