Workshop Information

Location
United States
Shop Equipment:

Steel City Mortiser
Jet 10" Table Saw
Jet 1 1/2 HP Shaper
Delta 14" Bandsaw
Rigid 13" Planer (Thanks Jason C)
Oneida Dust Collection System
5 hp Air Compressor
Delta tabletop Drill press
3 - Dell workstation tables ( $35.00 a piece ) What a Deal!

Just added 18 feet of workspace using 3 Dell workstation tables, they have built in rollers, totally adjustable, extremely heavy duty. Plan on installing a downdraft sanding station on one of them.

2 Shop Dogs - Dory and Pozar (polish for fire, yup he's a dalmatian)

This workshop is a late 1800's Foster Building located in Historic Downtown Flatonia Texas 78941
Ground floor has 2200 sq ft and 14' high ceilings, with great natural light and good natural ventilation.

So these photos are of the new workshop during renovations , I had to add a new plywood floor to hold the equipment. There's an old walkin cooler I plan on using as my office one of these days.

Looks like its going to be very great shop. The building, MiniMax Panel Saw, Jet Table Saw, Shaper, Bandsaw.etc etc…..all are great machines. And the two shop dogs also are a value added to your shop.
I enjoyed viewing.

Take care and work safely.

Very nice shop, I would love to have a shop in an old building like this, so much history. Thanks for the tour and just like you said to me, you are more than welcome in my shop any day of the week, as an added bonus when the machines are turned off the beer fridge is just in the next room haha.

Gotta tell ya, I'm very jealous of you and your shop. That's always been my dream to get an old building and make it into my shop. I sometimes come down to Texas from Michigan. Next time I'm in the lone star state, I'm gonna stop by. Oh yea, nice shop.
