Randy, this is certainly a nice shop space that you have. It looks to be well organized and it is laid out pretty well. Having a stand alone shop is the way to go in my opinion. Power tools can be run and finishes can be applied without bothering other members of the family. Since I enjoy getting started early in the morning, my wife will always let me know if I start my planer before she is out of bed. :) I also like the window that you have in your shop. I would much rather work under natural light if possilbe and it looks like you have your bench positioned to take advantage of the light coming in from the window.

You have a nice set of tools as well. And having two table saws is pretty nice. I have always thought that this would be a good idea. I would leave one of them set up for dado cuts which would save switch over time.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

thanks for the nice comments, I just swept the floor! The green powermatic saw is my project saw, I am almost finished with it, I have an Excalibur sliding table for it and I am debating where to put the saw, the thing is huge! and takes up a lot of floor space. My jet table saw is such a nice little saw, i can't get rid of it. having two saws is going to be nice, I agree with you on that, I hate when I get the dado set up and i need to rip something. I want to build a torsion box assembly table but I can't find the room. The window is really cool, i love the light, when Its nice outside I open the garage door and then there is plenty of natural light. 90% of my tools are from the local classifeds and ebay.

thanks for the nice comments, the broken window was from a stray bb. I need to get it fixed. but the tape works and the rasberries keep it hidden from the outside. Besides who wants to fix a stupid window when you can buy more tools???? By the way, you need to move on to the new technology, she just text mess me the explitives when she wants me to do something.

That Motor bike is scary fast, I have a lot of respect for it. does your freind build ultralights?? I love old powermatic tools, even though I only have one vintage machine at the moment I plan on getting a powermatic 8" jointer and a big planer. I have not made many kids toys but I would enjoy doing that, maybe when I get some of my projects finished, thanks for the kind comments…Randy

Most people in kaysville are very involved with the church, I find that people who work wood are a different breed, not everyone is interested in such things, doesn't fit the mold
