I have a 20×25 concrete block building behind my house that is a dedicated woodworking shop. I don’t have AC or heat unfortunately. It is wired for 110V now but I’m looking to upgrade to 220V since I’m in the market for a new table saw. The stuff I have is below. I try and keep everything as organized as I can with wallcontrol metal pegboard. It’s a local company my buddy works for and I sometimes can get the “factory rejects” for free.
- Shopsmith Mark V (almost identical to my Grandad’s that I learned on) – 4” Jointer attachment – Bandsaw attachment – Disc Sander – Lathe – Table saw
- DeWalt 12-in Double Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw
- DeWalt biscuit jointer
- Ryobi router and benchtop router table
- Various other power tools and hand tools

Buke27, It sounds like you have plenty of room for a nice shop. Dedicated space is great. welcome to Lumberjocks.

I agree with Bullethead’s comment on the windows. I would rather work under natural light so the windows are a big plus in my book as well.

Thanks for the picture. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.
