I converted my detached two stall garage into my woodworking shop. Originally the plan was only to use one stall but I quickly ran out of room :)

Its still a work in progress but I feel like the shop is pretty complete to the way I like it.

Looking good, Dan! Oh wait, is that space for more planes there under the window? Better get on that.

Ah, looks like home to me! I’d like a wider floorplan for sure, nice layout.

Nice collection of hand tools. I think you could use a couple more planes:)

im really glad to see you have a nice set up, and i don’t know if you know this or not, but your a sick man, i can count at least 70 to 75 hand planes… have planes like i have wood…...and i don’t see a cure any time soon…very cool, so what do you do with that many planes, or does it just get into collecting them..there really cool looking…enjoy it, its great having your own space huh…grizz

Great looking shop, Dan. I recognize the DC3300 from shopsmith there.

That is a great dust collector.

Grizz- I both use and collect the planes. Almost all of them have been tuned up and have sharp irons in them. I don’t like the idea of just setting them on a shelf and never trying them out.

Lee- Yes, that is the ShopSmith dust collector. Its a smaller DC but it works well. I have my planer and table saw attached to it.

Sweet shop Dan, the white wall’s really make a big difference in brightness.

Also, you have the fanciest outfeed table ever! ;-)

Mauricio, I have had an out feed table on my “to do” list for a couple years now… What I use now is an antique table that I was in the middle of restoring. Finishing the restoration is also on my “to do” list :)
