A great tour John. I enjoyed it. You were in depth but short a sweet.You are building a very nice set of tools. I do love wrapping the whole shop in french cleat. I am jealous of your square footage. Compared to mine you got a ponderosa. Great video I enjoyed it. Tag this on your shop on your home page.

Hey John – great tour – great shop! Love grandpas saw, that will always be a special tool….the french cleats are sweet and the file cabinet o’ wood is is a nice touch! Oh – that Jet spindle sander for $125 is SWEET…....Take it easy on the fingers with the chisels and thanks for sharing…..

Thanks for the well done shop tour. You have a great layout to be creative with. Have the same Rikon bandsaw and it is one of my most used tools after my table saw.

Looking forward to more projects from this excellent shop.

Hi John, Looks like a well equipped and nicely organized shop. I especially like the french cleats. I can imagine you will get a lot of use out of them. Thanks for the tour!

Thanks all, it has been quite a journey over the past few years. I keep plugging away and will update as I get the rest of the organization together
