Stacey's Workshop    

United States

I am in the process of building a new shop, it’s 18’ x 32’ with a loft. It’s closed in and I’ve got about half the siding up. I just stained and sealed the concrete slab a few days ago and once dry, I started moving my equipment in. No electricity yet other than extension cords but I’m hopefully going to get to start wiring it this weekend. Here is a older picture before the roof and siding went up. I’ll hopefully get some more taken soon.

I’ll list some of my tools and will add more as they come to mind.

10” contractor’s table saw
12” compound miter saw
13” benchtop planer
12” bench drill press
16” lathe
1.5 HP dust collector
1 3/4 HP router
Compressor and finish nailer
Slow speed bench grinder
Various handheld power tools (drills, saws, etc.)
Razee Jointer Plane and Coffin Smoothing Plane
Jack Plane
Handmade scrub plane
Bench chisels
Various pigsticker chisels
9” dovetail saw
14” Tenon saw that has been refurbed
Various measuring and marking tools

I think I may try to start a blog chronicling the progress of my shop. Unfortunately, I can see it being a long process. But at least it is happening.

Be sure to put a nice coat of wax on the floor, it makes for a easy cleanup. Be sure to add some elec. drops from the ceiling and air if possible. good luck w/ the project.
