My shop is a 24’ x 40’ steel building that I got when I purchased my house back in July 2007. The previous owner had built it so that his son would have a place to work on his corvette. I am slowly making it into my own woodworking domain. I have 3 daughters and a wife, so in other words, I live in a house with 4 women. They all call it my ‘Man Shop’. The shop is fully insulated and has 3 – 9’ wide garage doors (2 in the front, one in the back) and all walls are sheet rocked.

Here is a list of equipment I have collected so far:

Craftsman 10” contractors table saw
Craftsman 10” 1952 tilt arbor table saw
Craftsman 8” 1938 tilt arbor table saw
Shopsmith Mark V
Belsaw 12” planer/shaper
Craftsman shaper
Craftsman 12” bandsaw
Delta 16” scroll saw
Craftsman 10” radial arm saw
DeWalt 12” miter saw
Craftsman 4” jointer
Craftsman “Professional” (crappy) router stand
Jet Tools JBM-5 Mortising Machine
Bench Top Drill Press (not sure of the manufacturer)
Various hand tools (circular saws, routers, planer, sanders, etc)

I still need to get some kind of dust system in place.

Well, I finally took some new pictures!

Glad you found us, this is a great site. Your shop looks like a firehouse (from the outside), wish I had so much room. I hope to see some of your work soon.

I guess it does look kinda like a firehouse with the flag pole and all. Maybe a volunteer fire dept.. :)

If I would have been house hunting, that would have been the end of the line. What ever the house looked like, the wife and kids could fix that up to suit them. Great space, Jamie. Make sure you do get that dust collector, no matter what kind it is.

Hi Jamie,

I am catching up on things I have missed and came across your workshop post. You have a nice shop. I tend to agree with tenontim’s comments. The shop would have sold me on the place as well. It looks like you have plenty of space (nearly 1000 sq.ft that is nice) and the toys you need to get the job done.

I have only been here a little over a month and also just came across your workshop post. So far, from looking at the other workshop post, I would say that a lot of us here would love to have that space. And with three table saws, a Shopsmith, and radial arm saw, I would say that you are all set to get your wife and daughters into wookworking.
