My workshop in Stony Point NY. Ok it still needs a lot of upgrading, but I think I’m off to a good start. Not nearly big enough, but I’m sure thats a common complaint. My list of tools. Sawstop 10” table saw industrial model, absolutely love it. Powermatic 14” bandsaw, very nice saw but wish I had gone with a 17” multi speed so I could cut metal. Maybe next year. Jet 6” jointer, it does the job. Delta drill press, just a hair off center, maybe I need a new chuck. Anyway not very happy with it at the moment. Jet oscillating spindle sander, love it. Jet mortiser, a bit short on power, but a nice machine. Dewalt 13” thickness planer, again it does the job. Jet 16-32 drum sander, nice when you need it, but thats not too often. Craftsman lathe, what can I say, it turns. Delta benchtop shaper, great for the jobsite, not nearly good enough for the shop. Bosch 10” miter saw, nice but I think a festool may be taking its place soon. Craftsman 10” radial arm saw, set it at 90 degees and leave it alone. Shopfox benchtop disc sander, it works well. Lincoln 220V welder, just got it, so far so good. Jet 10” wet stone slow speed sharpener, still in transit. Ok thats about it folks. A list of what I still need. 3HP shaper, maybe a Jet or Delta. Dust collection system, powermatic 2HP should be good enough. Panel saw would be nice, but thats only if I decide to extend the shop into the second garage and then I would really like to add a spray booth, but thats not in the near future. If I do go with the extension that would give me about a 25’x35’ square shop. I think that would be very comfortable. For now I am pretty content with what I have. I have to be or the wife may decide to trade me in for a newer model. Have a great holiday everyone.

Great looking space. Looks like you have most everything you need to pump out anything.
Thanks for letting us look.

Carl, you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. It looks like you have it organized well and I really like your hardware storage. It sure beats the system I use in my shop:


You also have put together a nice collection of tools. It looks like you have put quite a bit of thought into getting quality tools.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thanks guys, still need to replace a few of the tools, but for the most part, its a good setup. As far as the size Jim, its an “L” shaped shop. The larger section is about 24’x15’ and the other leg is 10’x26’. Not bad, needs more bench space, which now that the tractor has a shed, I can begin to build. Thanks and Merry Christmas everyone

Carl, that is a sharp looking set-up You have there and lots of well thought out work stations. I like how organized every thing is and it looks as if projects are easily accomplished within a shop like that ! Thanks for the tour. I do have one question about Your shop pics ? Is it now possible to post more than 6 pics or did You do something special to allow more, curious minds want to know? Once again,nice shop !!

Hey Rob thats a good question that I wish I had an answer for. I don’t know I just posted the pics without really thinking about the amount. Seems like you can put up to twelve now. I need to post new pics. I took those with my cell phone. I have to take some clearer pics with a wider angle camera. Anyway seeing your shop makes me want to do some reorganizing, or maybe an addition. Very nice setup you have there, and an even nicer selection of equipment.

Nice shop, Carl. I doubled a one car garage and it made all the difference in the world. First time I’ve seen a John Deer powered saw stop ;). Thanks for the post.
