I have photos of my workshop on my website at

I just purchased a new jointer so I had to make a space for it. Since I moved things around and actually cleaned everything up, I thought I’d take a few photos. Here’s a few recent photos of my shop. It actually looks organized.

Since I posted my photos, I have added a center dust collection system with an Oneida-Air 3 hp Cyclone. I also added a 220 sub breaker to handle the cyclone so I thought I’d update my photos.

The house was built in 1938 so at some point in time one of the owners of the house added on the lower back portion of the garage. They did this to add a space for the front part of the car then the whole vehicle could fit in the garage. I use the space for my lumber and storage cabinets.
My New Powermatic jointer, I love it

This cabinet is my first woodworking project. I needed some storage. When I look back, I think I should have started with something smaller, at least they’re still standing.

Here’s a few of my garage projects (most of the projects are posted on my website along with more photos and instructions.

Angela, you have put together a pretty nice shop. I especially like the way you have utilized the “dead” space over your garage door for storage. For those of us with smaller shops we have to be creative with space utilization. You also have assembled a nice collection of tools.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Hi Angela

You have a good looking shop there. A lot of your shop projects are well thought out and look very functional. I liked your note about sheet rocking. I totally agree with you! Thank you for the tour.

God Bless

Just found your shop and all I can say is WOW!!! You did a fantastic job at organizing and layout. Everything about your shop says how much you enjoy woodworking. When I use to live in North Hollywood many years ago, I use to go to Burbank and Toluca Lake all the time.

Angela, I know that you posted this a long time ago and I haven’t seen it. I’ll say one thing:

Your shop sure is a doozy!

Love your shop and all your storage ideas. My shop has a lot of toys like yours, but it isn’t efficient like yours or where I want it to be. Do you make projects for you or do you make other people happy with your work?

Marlys so far I’ve only done stuff for myself or my parents. Most of the projects have been for my garage trying to get everything set up and organized. I’m currently making a coffin for a friends ashes, but that’s my only project for someone else….so far.

Thanks for the comments, it’s always nice to get feedback.
