Whidbey Island, WA 98249

My shop: Pretty well equipped for my purposes. The centerpiece is my 1953 King Seely (Craftsman)Tablesaw, retrofitted and hyped out to cut like the big boys. It’s an example of the earliest hybrid tablesaw in the land I believe. A eral attention getter and conversation starter:) Got a 17 in. Grizzley BS, 1971 DeWalt RAS, and an 8” Grizzley helical head jointer…which some of you may recognize as the old Delta DJ-20. I love this machine. Trying to decide on a new tablesaw upgrade or a larger drum sander. Am getting by with what I got, but want a little more production.

Thanks you guys- there are a lot of cool shops on here, eh? That floor was the result of 3 years…I started the first 3rd 3 years ago, then the 2nd 3rd last year, and finished the last 3rd this past Fall. I originally posted my plans and call for ideas here on LJ back then. It is a floating 3/4” plywood floor laid over felt paper right on the concrete. I cut the sheets sanded of plywood into 2×2 tiles and biscuted all 4 sides with 3 biscuts each.
It took 12 sheets of plywood to do each 3rd of the floor. The total floor is 1,200 sq. ft.
All the tiles were biscuted and glued with Gorilla glue, then finished with 2 heavy coats of polyurethane for flooring. It’s a good floor, even creeks real nice like a good ol’ wooden floor.
I mentioned I wouild update the project when I started, but haven’t as of yet. I’ll get to it though! :)

There are certain things that make me say “Wow! What a great place to work”. One of them is color.
Your shop has great color. From the pegboard to the floor. There is a very good vibe here.
I am in the planning stage for my new shop. I hope I can create that same feeling when I’m done.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Chem. The shop has been in the making now for nearly 6 years. When I bought the place it was just 4 walls and a concrete slab. No windows, no power, no nothing except 1200 s.f. of potential.
It is my 5th shop now, and is kind of a cummulation of experiecne over my last 30 years. I am hoping it would be my last shop, but if we up and move to greener pastures, I’d have to buy a place to start all over again.
In the meantime it is a very comfortable shop.
Take care,
