My wife has the crazy idea that a car should be able to park in our garage, which is a garage in name only as it is actually my workshop. Where do these people get these crazy ideas? Married to someone for over half my life and I have no idea WTH she’s thinking half the time.

Well, anyway, this is what the “GARAGE” looks like when I’m all packed up. It’s funny how most of the stuff seems to disappear into the background like a “Childrens Highlights” magazine find the hidden picture sketch.

Somewhere in there is 10” table saw, a 12” band saw, an 8ΒΌ” radial arm saw, an 8” CMS, a 13” thickness planer, a 6” jointer and that’s just the big stuff. I wonder if I could fit a double bag 2HP Delta dust collection unit in there ?.... My little Craftsman Shop-Vac is badly overmatched by my ability to create sawdust.

Thanks for check’in it out.

Definitely not a place for a car!

Nice Shop!

At first glance I would have thought that my wife has been to your shop. That is exactly her idea of how to organize a shop space. I don’t mind telling you that it drives me nuts whenever she decides to clean up and organize MY SPACE because I just can’t get to any of my tools to use them since they are all lined up neatly against the shop wall and stacked 3 deep. But you have organized your shop well enough to get your wife’s car in there although I am sure it does make it a challenge to get at your tools when you need to. I assume that, like my shop, your tools are mobile.

Anyway thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Well, it had been a while since I updated the shop picture so I decided to do so today. I’m constantly changing fixtures and tools so next month it will be a different array anyway. This past winter was busy for me and as a result, the organized nature of the shop is no longer in evidence. As long as I have her projects going my wife refrains from to much commentary. I wear my “Blockades” most of the time anyway so no worries. :)

Hehehe… my wife gave me the ENTIRE detached garage for my workshop when we moved. She even came out to help me unpack and organize. I think she’s really beginning to understand the need for a man-cave, especially with four daughters getting older… Now if I can just get cable and a frig out there I’ll be set….

Then again, maybe she’s just trying to get rid of me….? ;-)

Oh, btw Emerald, what IS that dark wood structure on the right? Sorta looks like a setup for a miter, but I think that’s a planer behind it.

I was just in Milford a couple weeks ago, my old stomping grounds… swept in grabbed a Unisaw for $550.00 (gloat) and swept back out again. I miss Cincy a lot….

Have a great day in the Shop!
