My shop is about 20’ X 8’, one half of a two car garage. The first pic is how it looks as you walk in the door. The second shows pretty much the whole shop area and the 3 pic shows the turning area. The last pic is my new to me workbench that my dad salvaged from a highschool woodshop over 20 years ago. The shop layout is shown in the last pic.

Thanks, Jeff

That is a nice lathe that you have to work with, Jeff. As a non-turner I have come to appreciate the effort and skill it takes to run one of these tools. I can well understand how “addictive” this woodworking technique can be. Every time I see a turning posted here it moves a lathe higher on my tool list.

I am looking forward to seeing more pictures of your shop.

Scott, as you may have heard, once you start turning the only thing you TS is used for is to stack bowl blanks. Be careful what you wish for! :)

I see you have a homemade lathe, How is the tailstock? I find that I need one sometimes and have yet to make one. I see you have the machine weighted, I did untill I put one bolt in the floor near the center of the machine and no more shaking or weights.

I can honestly say I sit here stunned at how impressed I am with your table saw / router table workstation scrap build… Somee of the biggest complaints my friends that have those Delta benchop machines is the lack of table top space, and mass. You seem to have solved the problem without gobbling up too much floor real estate. Good job!

Thanks guys, I have done quite a bit of updating…need to upload some new pics.

dbhost, I still need to do some tweaking on the TS/RT workstation to make it just right, but it has been working out great for me. thanks!

Patron, my 10yr wedding anniversary is 9/25/09….I have 19 days to make room or I will be living in one of those sub, sub compact cars…
