These are some new shop pics as I’ve had some significant changes over the months. I’ve added the Ridgid Oscillating Sander and a Craftsman Sliding Miter Saw to my tool line up. I also added a really nice HF rooling tool chest. The Dewalt 734 planer is new as well. I am using a Rockwell Jawhorse with MDF over it for my primary work surface and I can still break it down and put it away when I need to get a car in the ‘shop” :)

I have to say this is pretty much my dream shop. I really like all the tools I have and enjoy using them. My garage shop space is more than adequate for my uses. For the first time in my life, I’m NOT saying “oh I wish I had this tool”...and that is a great feeling.

The “keep out” signs are on the advice of my insurance folks, due to the fact that there are a ton of kids and solicitors in the neighborhood.

I am a simple hobbiest with little natural woodworking talent. My modest shop is my retreat from the hustle and bustle of life.

You have a really nice shop. I wish that I could keep my shop that clean. Welcome to Lumberjocks, bullethead.

I have to agree that this certainly does look look like a nice shop. It is clean, well organized and, with your power tools and benches on wheels, it is easy to get it set up again after moving the vehicle(s) out.

Let me also welcome you to LJs. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.

Thanks all. They key for me was getting rid of workbenches and using portable workmates. Much more spacious and I can get a car in if I need to. Lots more pics on my picturetrail link.

Thanks!
Dpop, it’s a smaller 2 car garage @ 20×20. I can still easily get one car in.

The first time I saw your shop, I thought you were the fellow down the street from me. One of my neighbors has his Ridgid Band Saw / planer set up on a gray painted cart almost exactly the way you have yours rigged… Except your saw and his are 90 degrees from each other… (That and the location were dead giveaways…). I guess that just reinforces that it was a really good idea…

Good clean layout. I love the under tool cabinetry. I need to build a workstation / cabinet under my table saw as well… Great use of totally wasted space!

DB no kidding, someone has a similar set up that I do with the BS and planer? wow!

Buke, organization is a state of mind :-)

I am actually kind of a rareity on WWing as I prefer minimalism, where most folks, and friends of mine colllect a ton of tools. To each his own. That is what makes this hobby so greatQ

Wow, nice shop. I’m not convinced that you’ve cut any wood in there though, it’s much too clean. lol

I too am impressed with you nice clean shop. Just like I like to keep mine. Tell me about your clamp storage rack thingy on the wall there. I am struggling with all my clamps with where to put them. I like your projects as well. Nice clean lines with a perfect finish on them. Keep up the good work and thanks for being by newest buddy!

It is actually just a simple piece of angle iron I bought at Lowes. Drilled three holes in it and screwed it into the drywall It works great, and like most of my shop, cost very little :-)
