My shop has been setup now for about four years and I still need to install permanent dust collector piping, it’s on my to do list. All the tools I have work very well for my needs as does wood storage. I have more than enough light, power and heat but short on clamps. ;-) Changed my wood storage setup from horizontal to vertical this year.

Thanks for looking.

Geoff, this is a shop that any of us would enjoy. You have it well organized and you have plenty of room in there to wander around between the different tool stations. You also have put together a good looking collection of tools.

Thanks for the tour. I had fun taking a look at your shop.

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

Now, that’s what I call a serious workshop. You are to be congratulated for a job well done and you should be proud of yourself. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

What a nice shop! Nice blend of old and new I see there. I like seeing some vintage colors peeking through the sawdust;)

Thanks to everyone for the comments. I do enjoy my time in the shop and I look forward to more. I also enjoy LJ’s as there is always something going on here. Currently working on cutting boards and will build a Spalm design shortly. One of his board patterns reminded me of the old video game Q-Bert screen.

Hey, I was told upon joining LJs that a “Shop Dog” was the standard? What’s with the cat scratching post/tree?

Actually, an impressive tool/machine collection of the sawdust making variety!!!

Lol. Ok, I have a shop cat but occasionally I have a dog in there too.

The process of making dust is sure easy with the tools. Like most of us here I’m always wanting to upgrade but for now they are great.

Nice shop space…you’re suppose to make stuff with all that lumber, not hoard it!
