My Woodshop is finally finished. (That is to ask the question if a woodshop can ever be finished.) I’ve dubbed it… ”The New Show-Me Woodshop”.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Don’t clean it up too much.

Your photos look like my photos. I took them during a raging blizzard. ;^)

Hi Frank,

Sawdust and “tool clutter” are pretty much the norm in my shop. My personal opinion is that a pristine shop simply doesn’t look like it is being used. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your shop. Visual tours of other shop are one of the enjoyable aspects of this site.

I was too embarrassed to put ay photos of my old garage workshop. Here’s some pix of my new shop. I’ll type more about it later.

I live over in the Metro East and I’m about to start ‘finishing’ my workshop. (Converted detached garage). Might need to trade notes with you at some point. haha

NICE… I’d love more info on that 4” port on your HF bandsaw… I got one from Peachtree and it is WAY too big for that spot…

It seems you got the list of HF gems as far as major power tools goes. 32208 band saw, 34706 lathe, 6” jointer, and 2HP dust collector… Looks a LOT like my shop…

Hi Frank

Your shop really turned out nice. Meant to look at it sooner but never got around to it till now. My wife says, I accept the fact that you will always need something for the shop or a new tool. God I love that woman! My shop has all the big equipment now. I still have some storage cabinets to build yet. You did a great job on your shop!

God Bless

Hi Mike…

Sorry, I was just watching the movie Twister. That’s Helen Hunt on the screen. Her tight slacks do look a bit “fleshy”, don’t they?!

Thanks for the compliment though. It’s nice to hear from a “neighbor”.
