Centerville, OH
United States

My compact 1/2-minus of a small two-car garage (note to self:when your hobby is woodworking don’t get a house with a small garage…especially when the wife requires that her car be in the garage). Home made workbenches and rollaround tables for miter saw, planer and sander. I have the pride and heart of the shop, my “Gold Standard” tablesaw with a very nice Jessem router table setup on the wing. Everything small is tucked away most of the time, but is usually one deep in the cabinets. Most of my work is small projects like small furniture and shadow boxes. I’ve gotten into some turning projects over the last year to broaden my experience. The shop works, but still dream of the old barn wth wood floors and everything out where I can use it and not have to have everything on wheels.

In impressive collection of machines! Great use of space. I was trying to figure out what the “fold away” was, then I saw the picture of your lathe & saw it was a resting place for your turning tools, couldn’t call it a tool rest as that term refers to something else already. Now then, is that a cardboard mock up for some dust collecion?

Nice shop, thank you for opening it up for a tour!

Looks like you have everything and everything in its place. Super use of space.

I like your organization. The one half car workshop would be hard to deal with. The cabinets on wheels should help….................

Way cool! That looks like a super band saw back there also. Wish I had a spindle sander but my drill press works for now. Your stuff is way too organized!

Thanks Tim…the bandsaw was my first “Gold” tool…we’ll be thinking of you.

Thanks Cabmaker. The Bosch is really nice. My second Bosch miter. The first was the older round rod slider and had some flex in it if you weren’t careful…still very accurate and got used to the up front controls for tilt and swing. I wanted a 12” blade so when the new “Axial-glide” came out I tried it out and loved it. Very accurate right out of the box, solid and smooth…also saves about 12” on the back side. Still kinda pricey, but coming down. No laser unless you buy it, but most trim guys don’t trust them anyway.
