, IA
United States

My workshop is a 11X28 garage that was added onto the two car garage. I was lucky to have the garage prewired with 220V. It is heated, which helps during the winters here in Iowa. The cabinets were a gift from my wife. The most recent addition is the PM66. I have had the JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel for a few months now. I’m looking to get a bandsaw real soon. The shop is small, but because most things are on mobile bases, I can’t complain.

Thanks for the comments. Bill, I have both a healthy respect and somewhat of a fear of the TS. That should keep me on my toes while using it. I’ll be using it to cut some cherry plywood tomorrow for a wine cabinet. Maybe I’ll post a picture on here with the shop all duty and cluttered.

Dude, your equipment is so “shinarp”!!! I’m guessing you don’t have kids. I would love to have your tools but I pinch pennies because I have 5 rugrats. Oh one day when I win the derby at the cockfight in Guam and take home a couple hundred thousand bucks. Not really, I only go to the cockfight to get the soup and sandwiches they sell there.

Yes, I visit the site often, but rarely post. I did get a Powermatic 14-inch bandsaw a while back. I’ve been working on a small cherry wine cabinet and hope to post it in the projects section soon. I’m currently applying the finish; no stain, just a satin wipe-on oil and urethane top coat. My newest addition to the workshop will be an 8-inch jointer that I’ll be picking up next week. Mobile bases are my friend.

Hi Christian,

Your shop post just surfaced on my review list. You have a nice shop and some really nice tools. I am a Powermatic fan. Congrats on the band saw as well. I put mine in service in December.

Thanks for the post.

I hope that you have some sawdust on the floor by now.

I like the cabinetry, even though not homemade.

Have your say...
