Although the shop is not organized yet, I have all the essentials. I’m a huge fan of Norm Abrams, and try to watch all his shows on Saturday. I’m looking forward to retirement in another year, then I can spend many hours building!
I will have to plan my workshop carefully, so as to take advantage of a Oneida dust control system I will soon be ordering. I’m probably going to use 6” pipe for better vacuum of material.

Paul, you have a nice shop in which to work. It looks like it is well organized and it is nice to see some new tools going in there. It does look like you have plenty of space in which to work. That is a nice jointer you selected. I am a big fan of Powermatic tools. By the way I was really surprised to see a Powermatic dryer in there. I don’t think I have seen one of those before. :)

You have a real nice work space and I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Thanks for the compliments! I still have to O R G A N I Z E !! At least I have all the power tools on mobile bases; except for my new Delta floor drill press. I am thinking of buying an Oneida V System 3 HP cyclone dust system, but that might be overkill. Perhaps something smaller; otherwise there would be no need for portability of all those tools. I’ll update my photos as I make progress.

I did forget to add something in my last post. I would highly recommend anyone who can afford it to buy a cabinet or hybrid table saw for dust control. I’m going to have to retrofit mine to try to get a hold on the dust, and make it look presentable. Being a toolmaker, that should be no big deal.

This is a nice shop. Looks like you have a little more room than I do.

Hello all LJ members and friends!
I’ve since upgraded some of my tools; an 8” Grizzly jointer with helical cutter head, a Grizzly cabinet table saw,and a buddy of mine built me a lumber rack. I’m in the process of building 2 Hepplewhite tables (with my friends’ professional tutelage)....I’ll send photos and update my shop pics soon.
Thanks for the compliments!
