Tool wall and lumber rack are the best improvements. I keep putting more and more tools on the wall. The miter stand isn’t quite done in the pics, still a work in progress, but I like that I can move it around the shop easily. Pictures were taken at different times. The little Powr-Kraft bandsaws is long gone, replaced with a Delta 14”. The lumber rack looks messy but it’s actually well organized. Updated 2017.

The old shop was built in the 70’s.

Nice shop though.
Slowly as time goes by, a project completed after another, you’ll get inspired to make over or just reorganize! Thanks for sharing & enjoy woodworking the safe way.

Hi Rick, just looking at your shop set up. I know you said you were changing things awhile back.
I have to comment on the drill press. It is a spittin immage of mine. I have a Rockford. Bought it back in 1980 new for $65.00.

It’s set up a lot different now. Guess I should update my pics. I’ve seen a number of drill presses just like mine with a variety of brand names on them but I believe Orbit was the actual manufacturer. Jet bought from Orbit and sold them in the states, later rebranding them. I believe Jet still sells some parts for them.

-- Rick M,
