Here is my small, half a garage workshop. Still working on the walls. Still too cold to tape and mud.

looks like a great shop, i’d be taking care of the rust on that planer soon .
do you think you will have room for a fixed bench, or will everything be modular and on wheels?

the planer is a free borrow from a friend of mine. I need to get around to cleaning that up. I have only used it 2 times for practice. Thanks for pointing that out for me.

Everything will be on wheels…I need to make a planer/all purpose stand next and return this one.

Half a garage? I’d kill for half a garage! I only have a quarter of a basement :)

Mike, it looks like you are off to a good start on your shop. You have most of the basic tools and it looks like you have managed to use the space that you have fairly efficiently. Bummer about the car though. I tried to keep both a garage and a shop for quite a while but eventually gave up and now my truck stays outside. This let me expand my shop area and it gave me more room for tools.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nice shop Mike, thanks for the tour.

Mike, you get to keep that wonderful stand :) I don’t want it back :) If you give it to me it has to have the planer attached. You can feel free to throw it away or burn it, whichever.. Burning sounds like more fun!!

The shop is looking good!

I kicked the cars out of my shop too. I like the outlet spacing. My Dad was a master electrician and laughed at my outlets every 6’ along the walls of my shop. I wish I would have went with 3’ spacing, it seems you can always use another outlet – kind of like clamps I guess …

Nice table saw, planer, jointer, and bench. Not sure if that is a shaper or a router table / router in the corner there, but you have a good start on a nice little shop there..

How’d you manage a loaner jointer?
