My Missouri workshop. Just renovated it this spring. Epoxy floor finish, painted the walls and cabinets and trim work. Lastly I built the walnut miter saw station. I used a bunch of my rough cut Missouri walnut that has been taking up space in my loft. Major Craig’s list score! My favorite room in the house and now that it is done and looking nice, my wife and kids come out and spend time with me while I work on projects. I make primarily cabinets and furniture, but I am thinking about dabbling in drift wood since it is abundant supply here.

Very nice and spacious! Beautifully done as well. You don’t often see Walnut used for shop fixtures… Excellent tools as well. I would LOVE one of those Festool Kapex saws…

Thanks for the comments. The miter saw station is my centerpiece for my shop. It took me several months to complete. I really took my time on every aspect right down to the burled walnut drawer pulls, solid 1/2 inch drawers and the hardware. I had the walnut from a major Craig’s list score and figured why not use it to make a nice cabinet and show off my skills to anyone who visits the workshop. I did use one 4×8 sheet of walnut plywood for the cabinet sides, but that’s it. I might make a project post on just the miter saw station. The drawer fronts and door rail and styles are Birdseye maple that I popped with an amber dyed shellac and some general finish top coat.

Scott, your shop is the one we all hope to have some day. I’m assuming you do woodworking/furniture making for a living? For those of us that woodwork for a hobby, this is something we dream about having someday. Love the epoxy floor, that’s something I’ve actually thought about doing myself. Welcome to Lumberjocks, I’ll be looking forward to future posts.

The epoxy floor is my most favorite upgrade to my shop. Once I put that floor in I noticed that my kids and wife started to come out and join me in the shop and stay to talk and hang out. It really makes it more like another interior room more than any other modification I did to the shop this past year. I recommend it to any of you jocks who actually want to have your family join you in the shop. Made a huge difference for a low price. Biggest bang for the buck considering all the upgrades I did this year by far. Second would be a new coat of paint on the walls.

I commented on your YT video but still wanted to say how nice your shop is.

Very well done!
