Here is my shop !! It is 12×16 in size, such wish I had more room but who doesn’t. The main tool in my shop is the Shopsmith. I inherited it about 5 years ago from my father-in-law who was an amazing woodworker. In fact nearly everything in my shop I inherited. The Shopsmith is a 1963 model but still run just fine. Shopsmith makes quality tools. I have a Shopsmith jointer, belt sander and bandsaw. I also have a 15” planer.

Will, I really like your shop. It is a good use of space. That Planer looks pretty heavy duty.

Cousinwill, you have a very nice shop with a lot of nice tools and equipment and I have seen some of your work. It’s very good.
