Well, I gave the shop a good cleaning recently and decided it was as good a time as any to get some pictures. The space is a 2 car garage with a steel post in the middle that I need to work around, so I buried it in the middle of the lathe/dust collector/drill press area. The pictures are as follows:

#1 – As you walk into the shop the lathe is right there, where I do all of my pen turning. Behind it is the drill press and dust collector.

#2 – Turning to your right from the lathe is my pen assembly area and bandsaw. Looking further right in this picture is my old lathe (now a dedicated buffer), pen kits on the pegboard (so I know what I have to re-order), and assorted smaller tools. On the ground is my thickness planer, but it is rarely used these days.

#3 – This is now the far side of the shop behind the lathe. Starting at the front left is the sliding compound miter saw, vacuum chamber/pressure pot for stabilizing wood and casting, vacuum pump, disc/belt sander, mini drill press (I have kept a sanding flap wheel in there for at least 2+ years now), and Rigid spindle/belt sander. Working to the right from there is a small portable work station for my stabilizing prep and table saw (folded, it comes out only when needed). Behind those is my wood drying area, currently it has a bunch of Mulberry along with assorted historic woods.

#4 – Turning slightly to your right now you can better see the drill press, dust collector and air compressor.

#5 – Here, if you had just walked in and were standing facing the lathe and turned to your left you would see my pen prep area. Aside from various pen blanks in different stages of being made, there is also some wood storage. This is mostly my own stash, unlike the historic wood which belongs to a company I work with.

#6 – Last shot of another wood stash, alongside of the drying rack. This is a mix if my own + more historic wood.

So there you have it. I can be found in here almost every weekday and even some nights and weekends depending on what’s going on. Thanks for looking.
