The last photo is of my shop prior to 2015-16 re-do. Particle board paneling, vinyl windows, my Jet tablesaw and my first workbench. The others are of shop as of 2017. Better dust management, more ambient light (still an issue however) and moved a partition which made for much better use of existing space. The work benches are on rollers now and are height adjustable which really makes them multifunctional and easy on my back. I’ll post an entry on me blog filling in the detail and with photos to illustrate. The long version of the story is on the website link listed. Another link https://www.pinterest.com/noctilux54/diy/ shows some of the stuff I made prior to the remodel. I’ll update that soon.

Nice Shop! The MDF, Trim, and Wainscot really compliment each other and make for a nice warm, rich interior. Well done! What is your wainscot material? Those strips look great.

a1Jim, helluvawreck, pottz, and magaoitin- thanks for your very positive comments! Particularly since all of you are in the construction business and have shops befitting experienced professionals. Magaoitin- I’m lucky to have two architectural salvage yards in town. The T&G boards are from a demolished schoolhouse. The metal panels also came from a salvage yard and were used in the ceiling to maximize height- 8’ to the bottom of the exposed joists. I wish the shop had 10ft ceilings, but at least that lets me maneuver plywood sheets.

Thanks Commarato. Your shop is dense with both metal and woodworking machines. DW has expressed alarm at combining both practices in the same area when I’ve ideated about metalworking (took welding in high school). How do you deal with sparks and dust?

Great shop. Space and more space.

I see you designed your tables and bench to raise and lower. Can you provide more details?

Bill, thx for checking in on my shop. Your space is the stuff dreams are made of- wood floors, high ceilings and lots of window light coming from tall divided light windows. The key element in my workbench and modified MFT’s is screw jacks. If you look at my projects section there’s a entry with my modified Festool MFT’s; here’s the link for the longer version:

I recently completed a workbench with a similar mechanism. That along with a recliner/bookcase combination will be the next post on me blog. I refer to them both as Frankenbenches since they are idiosyncratic solutions to my needs/wants.
