2 car garage converted into a woodworking shop. I think it’s about 24×24. My mechanic tools are all off to the side. Includes single stage dust collection system. 50amp 220v main power feed. Single radiant gas heater. And some sweet office file cabinets (the good ones).
Grizzly 10” Table saw left tilt 220v She’s a beast! 2HP
Dual Craftsman 10” Radials
Dads older drill press
Craftsman 12” Band Saw from 1952
Early 60’s 48” Rockwell Lathe
12” Grizzly planer
Craftsman 16” Scroll
Osillating spindle sander
Delta 3 wheel band saw
Cherry and Maple work bench (yes-thats a TOOL) :)
3hp Ryobi shaper
5 routers, 4 -18v drills, and many other handhelds.
Single stage dust collector exhausts through an outside wall, and collects outside in a huge fiberglass box. Major machines are all hooked up to dust collection.
I mostly get into smaller to med size woodworking projects, but sometimes taking on larger ones.
Half of my 12×20 barn serves as lumber storage and a drying kiln.
I try to keep the workshop clean and organized. Usually, after completing projects the shop is cleaned and motors vacumed etc..
Dad passed away in 03, but his woodworking tools live on…
Snap on tool chests were replaced with a custom 6’ Master series rollaway. Chop saw is gone, and upgraded to a dual radial arm saw station. Dust collection is buried under ground to table saw. Focusing on opening up the shop more. Better storage and combining tool stations to gain added room.
new addition to shop is what i like to call “Master Woodworkers tool cabinet”
Armoire style cabinet to house all the non powered tools. This baby is awesome.
Also did a rebuild on my fathers old Band Saw, and built a mobil base.
