Welcome to my Shop:

Generally new to woodworking. I started to get involved and set up a shop about 5 years ago. Life, family and frustration with inaccurate equipment kept me from really getting very far.

Well, I am back trying to get going in earnest this time. I have added a few new machines and am in the search for a new Table Saw to replace the one pictured here. It was my dad’s – an old Delta combo machine (saw + jointer). The table moves for both height and bevel adjustments. I really struggled with this in terms of accuracy. Still a cool machine – it still runs very smooth. I will keep it in the family, but it won’t be my day-to-day saw.

If you live in MN, shoot me a note, I would love to connect with a few local woodworkers…Heck, we might even get out and do some fishing too…Don’t ya know :)

Great looking shop. I’m trying to decide what to do on my walls. Like the clean bright white look, but afraid sheetrock will get beat up to easily. Is yours sheetrock or painted plywood? How’s it holding up?

On the table saw topic, I struggled for too many years (15) with an inaccurate table saw. After a year of watching online sales sites, found a good deal on a Delta 52” Unisaw, and what a difference! I used SearchTempest to search cities all around me. I also found a Delta variable speed drill press and other quality tools at good used prices that way. Highly recommend it if you can wait, the key was being patient and waiting for a truly good buy to pop up.

Hey Sawdust,

My walls are painted sheetrock. They are holding up ok, but starting to get dinged up a little. I figure I will let it go a while and then pull everything back and paint. It’s not the warmest looking shop because of the white, but I have no windows in the shop at all, so I felt I needed to do everything I could for light during the winter months.

I totally agree with your approach in terms of good used tools. The only new tools in my shop were the bandsaw and the planer. I got such a good deal on that planer, that I could sell it today and make some money on it.

In terms of my table saw, I am waiting on a saw my friend picked up really cheap to help someone out. It’s a 5 hp Unisaw – I think, the current model. Unfortunately, don’t have any pictures available to know for sure and it is out of state. We are going to pick it up in November. I am hoping it is in good condition. If not, the search will continue…

Thanks for looking.
