109 Yorkshire Dr.
Athens, AL 35613
United States

Our shop is roughly 14×23; and feeled to the rim with junk and treasures. It is quite messy right now considering we have 4×8 sheets of insulation to mount to the cielings sitting in the middle of the room. We also recently aquired the 13in. DeWalt planer which has yet to be mounted to anything. It is humbly sitting on a workmate with its box still sitting beside it. On top of all that, last night I began to do some bandsaw tune-up work. In order to get the new planer the shop had to be clean and two weeks ago it was I swear :)
I love my shop all the same. The older tools were my dad’s and Papaw’s. The newer tools were my older brothers until he passed away in December 2007. Since then I have really taken up the hobby and have added the Delta lathe and planer. We had an old Craftsman lathe; however, we decided to give it to someone who knew how to fix it up. -Tool Inventory- DeWalt Radial-Arm saw Craftsman 10 in. contractors table saw DeWalt 10 in. miter saw bench-dog router-table DeWalt 3 piece router kit Rockwell 14 in. bandsaw Delta 40 in. lathe DeWalt 13 in. planer Crafton drill press – aftermarket I suppose. I cannot find any information on this brand. DeWalt air-compressor Craftsman router Dremel scroll saw
I won’t go into the portable tools but there is a large amount.
Yes we love DeWalt tools. We currently have 12 including stationary and cordless machines. One of our Australian Shephards is named DeWalt.

Your shop does appear to be a lot like mine both in size and in general appearance. When I am in the middle of a project every hand tool I own seems to end up on the assembly bench. But you have a nice shop space in which to work and you have some nice tools to play with.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

I’m glad to see that mine isn’t the only shop with lots of clutter…............LOL. Just wish I had the space you have. Love the puppies. How do you like the Delta Lathe? Looks like mine.

Yes it is quite a mess I’m working on it though and when I’m done I’ll post more pics. The lathe is great. I have made a walnut candlestick holder with it. Replaced a couple of spindles from my great grandfathers old crib. Did the same for an old chair. I have to say that my father is far better at it then me though.

Have your say...
