small shaper with slide table

20 year old table saw with a new slide table

This shop is 30×40 feet in size, I have been replacing the structure from the inside out for 3 years. It started out as a 2 car garage approx. 55 years old. I have been working in it for the past 12 years. My first shop was another 2 car garage where I worked for 20 years.

very nice set up, is that a doll house or a church model? It’s very nice I’m interested to see the finished project. It’s in the last two pics. I also see something that looks like a scroll saw but the table is tilted forward it’s in the fourth pic on the same side as the computer.

The model is a church – St. Patrick in NY. I had it in storage for 25 years now i am using it for reference to build it with newer technology, in a larger scale and with interior detail.

The machine you were looking at is a sander.

A 30×40 2 car garage? Mine is 18×20 and they call it a 2 car garage! NICE space you have there for sure!

How’s the headroom in there? It looks a little snug.

Brian, this is a pretty nice looking shop that you have put together. I probably would get lost in there if I had this much room. :) It does look like you have a lot going on in there. And you have put together a pretty nice tool collection as well.

Thanks for the tour. It was fun to visit your shop.

You have a wonderful shop and some very nice equipment. I’d love to wonder around in it and see what you are up to because it looks like lots of interesting things are going on.

Very interesting shop, with all those massive support posts and beams, do you have a second story on
this or do you just like to have a large safety margin? Welcome to Lumberjocks and hope you enjoy your
stay and have lots of fun playing in the shop.

Nice shop.
What is above?
Was it on the top of the cabinets?
I love the cathedral.
I was born and raised in France and we have many many of them.
They are so impressive and even more impressive is the fact that they ever were built with technology of the time and that they remain standing after so many years.

There is a second floor, 5 rooms that are used for storage. Our house is only 600 sq. ft. so we use the upper floor excluseively for storage. The building is very old, I had to remove 2 out of the 4 exterior block walls to do the expansion. The 6×6 colums and beams were used to replace the old walls. I have 8×8 & 6×12 on hand for future expansions. But I have been using them for this on going project.

Nice shop Brian. I am glad you joined LJ and I am looking forward to more of your pictures. Nice job on the replacement of those support beams. It’s never as easy when you are doing it from the inside out.

-- Mel,
