Workshop Information

Not a great time to take pics, since I'm in the middle of moving things around but here it is. The entire shop is 30 X 60. It's divided into two, one side is a metal fab/machine shop, the other is my wood shop. I have a few items on the wish list but have mostly what I need to build anything I want.

Scott, you have a nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of room to maneuver in there and it looks like you have organized your shop well. I like your ceiling height that you have in there. You can move 8' boards and sheet goods around without any problem. Mine only has 93" to the ceiling joists and I have to be careful about dodging lights and outlet boxes when I am handling full size sheet goods and long boards.

That is a nice lumber rack that you have built in there. It looks solid and I like the pipes for support. They are strong enough to handle these loads and they occupy very little room letting you put more lumber in each row. You have added some nice benches and I like your table saw center.

Is that a third router table in the corner behind the edge sander or is it just a fence? Having two router tables set up as you do is a nice idea especially if you need multiple operations such as cope and stick joinery. You have a nice set of tools to play with too. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thank you! I have been working to utilize all that wall height. I plan to build quite a bit of shelves/cabinets in the the future and get rid of some clutter. I took those pics over the course of rearanging today so the router table you see in the corner is actually the same one you see in the middle of the floor, just moved it between pics. I do have a small Delta shaper as a third router. I have worked in this shop for most of my life as it was my late fathers. He passed on early this year and to be honest, I had to make some drastic layout changes to be able to cope with working in there. It was fine the way he had it and worked well but I had troubles seeing it as he had it. He has handed some great knowlege and tools down to me and I enjoy every bit of it. Thank you again for looking.

A good looking and practical shop and excellent wood storage…sure hope the metal holds…I'd put some doweling down the center of the pipe to strengthen it….but that's me.

Folks, I will try to post some better pics when I get done re-organizing. These were snapped with my cell phone and aren't the greatest. Thanks to all who have looked and commented!
