Here is my workshop. The first 2 pics are my old workshop in Bisbee. I had a narrow aisle to roll my tools in at night, but had to cover them with a tarp when it rained.
One of the advantages of living in SE Arizona is that I can usually make all my dimensional cuts on my langer lumber outside and do the assembly and finishing inside. So, I roll out my power tools from the inside “shop” to cut it then take it inside to glue up.
My new digs have a 1 1/2 car garage that houses all my power tools, including my new bandsaw and table jointer, as well as my leather shop. It is still in disarray from our move. We only had a week to move out of our house in Bisbee, but we could not move into our new house, fully, for about 2 weeks after that.
So, our garage was turned into a storage den that I have just been able to get cleared and set up some. Of course, whenever my wife finds something of mine that she thinks should be in my shop it gets piled on top of my leather-working desk. (it will be awhile before I get to my leatherwork in seriousness.)
Anyway, in my new shop I do not have the concrete driveway to roll my saw out like I did in Bisbee, so I bought a Ridgid Table saw that rolls on a mobile frame. That is me cutting fence pickets from 2×3x8 stock. The fence around the grass should be up soon and then I can get to truly fixing my shop up and making the Thorsen table. ( I hope!)
Anyway I am surprised I am the first shop posted from Arizona. I know there are a lot of us woodworkers here in AZ.
