Workshop Information

Location
United States
Small basement shop that slowly accumulates tools. I am not a Delta zealot, it just some how happened that I accumulated mostly delta tools.

Delta table saw, Bessemer fence, 52" table, wired 220v
Delta drill press
Delta lunch box planer
Jet 6" Jointer
Delta dust collector
Delta Air filter
Delta hollow chisel mortiser
Bench top belt/pad sander
Ryobi 12" miter saw

4'x2' CNC machine that I built from scratch. It's was a fun project but it still has some kinks to work out.

I picked up a bunch of lumber about a year ago that I am slowly working through. Mostly ash/birch/cherry. You never know what you will find on craigslist.

Nice shop Chris. That car seems to be taking up way to much room. :)

Chris, I have to agree with Ray's comment about the car. Just think of all the room that you would have for more tools if it wasn't taking up valuable shop space. :) I tried for quite some time to keep both a garage and a shop. Eventually I gave up and let my truck sit outside. I just got tired of the constant set-up and tear down.

But you appear to have a nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have room enough in there to maneuver between the tool stations and it looks to be pretty well organized. That is one nice stash of wood that you have. I can see lots of potential projects in there. You also have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Nice shop, and if you need a hand working through that big pile of wood I would be more than happy to take some of it off your hands lol. Thanks for the tour.

What woodworking purpose does the Subaru perform?

Seriously though, looks like good space and good tools. Nice lumber stash too!

Great looking basement shop. Looks like you slowly acquired a pretty good set of tools. Gotta love Craigslist.

The photos are a bit misleading. The workshop is in the basement, it is framed out and drywalled to keep the dust out of the furnace and storage area outside the shop. I currently have about 40% of the basement but I might slowly move the wall out until my wife notices that the shop got bigger. The wood was temporary in the garage until I had built some racks in the shed and basement to hold it. My last shop was the garage but boy did it get cold out there in the winter, the new shop is unheated but gets residual heat from the furnace and house. The only trick is getting material down the bulkhead, especially sheet goods.

I was toying the the idea of building a lift platform with car scissor lift, has anyone had experience with such a setup?
