,

I sold all my stationary power tools about 8 years ago when my son was born and I never really missed them. Didn’t have time to.
I have just recently “spring 2010” started to have time to get back into Woodworking again but this time with more limited resources and space “the kids playroom is where my old shop used to be”. So i’m going Neander. Hand tools galore. I have taken a short wall on the back of the basement stairs for my shop. My wife also let me have 1 shelf in her storage area to keep stuff.

The picture in my Gallery shows my entire shop space.
I did just pick up a lathe to restore some old tool handles. I never had one of those before. it fit’s nicely under the bench.

Just uploaded a more recent photo showing my new molding planes, got rid of some duplicate tools, and this time the Dog has her head through the cat hole

Mike, I have always had a great deal of respect for those woodworkers who take the time and put in the effort to follow a more traditional path. I have neglected to develop skills with my hand tools but I can see that there is a great deal of satisfaction to be found in using them. You certainly have managed to put together a nice collection of tools.

Thanks for posting a tour of your shop.

Nothing wrong with going neanderthal. I like the way you have it set up and I see that you’ve got a front row seat for you favorite student. Now that is cute.

There’s something quite Zen about a quiet place like yours with the sound of a hand plane and a giggling entertainment system . . . Thanks for sharing!

Great looking space to make some sawdust or should I say shavings. Thanks for sharing, Steve in Oregon
