I custom designed and built my shop. It’s 960 sqft.
I placed 4” pvc pipe under the slab for the dust collector
There is an dust free office in one corner for small projects. The first thing I did was to build a maple workbench that is 3×8 feet.

It is a little better organized now than in the pictures.

Nice shop like the size and the large garage door for access. Looks like you built a New Yankee Workshop router table….

It is a very nice shop! Ornamental lathe, great bench, router table, tools and gun control motto, too! LOL. Your shop almost dwarfs your house. What a great looking place. I can’t wait to see some of your projects. Thanks for all the pictures.

Great shop Gary. I love that work bench you made. How many Bd Ft did that take?

I also love that big table for your tablesaw. Lots of nice room all over to work.

Gary – what a nice space to work in! I’d like to know more about the construction of the bench too. Do you have any pics of the process that you could post as a blog? Thanks for letting us in!

Gary, looks like you have a long commute to your workspace. :-) How old is that Delta X ts and would you buy it again? Ditto on the Delta jointer. Thanks.

Hey John,

I got that Delta X from Amazon for a total of $1,343.25 including shipping. They screwed up on their price so I ordered it on the spot. The next day it was back to $2000 plus. But that aside, I am very happy with it. The blade was so good that I haven’t even put my brand new forrest blade on it yet. It’s a big step up from my delta contractor saw. But every project I have posted so far except for the workbench and shuffleboard table were made on that contractor saw.

As for the jointer, it’s so-so. I had to shim the outfeed table, but other than that it works. I really don’t have anything to compare it to but I bet there are a lot better.

Ah yes I believe the WW bug has given you a bad case. This is a serious playground.

With all of the nice comments you’ve given me, I’m taking some time to look over some of your work.

You have a terrific looking shop, & I like your workbench, & Router table.

I wish I had all of that space, but in this country I couldn’t afford to heat it.
