MoreWoodPlease's Workshop    

Long Island, NY
United States

One car garage that houses the following:
Craftsman lawn tractor
Honda Shadow Motorcycle
Craftsman Jointer
Beaver Wood Lathe
1952 DeWalt Radial Arm Saw
Delta Bandsaw
General Free Standing drill press
Delta surface planer 13”
Tool chest
1hp Dust Collector
30 gal compressor
Oh yea, the latest addition, a Grizzly G0690 cabinet saw.
Now, I don’t have any room for wood!
Everything is on wheels, and I must move tools in and out to use them. What a pain.
I now need a bigger garage, or I could expand the garage into the living room! I’m sure the wife won’t mind.

This is a nice looking shop that you have. And you have added an excellent saw to your tool collection. Bummer about having to keep the “non-essentials” in the shop but I guess they have to go somewhere and I can only imagine what your wife would say if you asked to use the living room to store the motor cycle. I tried for years to keep both a garage and a shop but eventually just gave up and let my truck sit outside. I simply got tired of the constant set-up, tear-down and moving my tools outside (weather permitting of course) to use them. And by doing so it also gave me more room for tools!! :)

You have a nice set of tools to work with and the RAS is a classic. I enjoy seeing older tools like this still in use. Tools from this era were well built and saying they are solid is an understatement.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

All of the projects to date I have posted, were all made with the 1952/53 DeWalt Radial Arm Saw. The saw was my fathers, and has been in family forever. Last year I brought it back to life, new Mr. Sawdust table, new blade, new bearings and electric components, and of course a new cabinet base. It is amazing what you can do with a RAS. The only reason I bought my first table saw was the RAS only has a 3/4hp motor. After making my first cutting board of Hard Maple and Purpleheart, I knew the old RAS needed a big brother. I have gotten quite proficient with the RAS, and now have to learn how to use this new beast in the shop. I still find myself turning to the old DeWalt, they just don’t make tools like it anymore.
Thanks to LumberJocks, and the people here, you all have inspired me tackle my next project which will be a desk. I have not made and real furniture yet, so I will post when its done.

Nice shop, I read the review on your table saw, you got that one for a good price, thats what I paid for my Delta and it only has a 2HP motor. As for the RAS, your right, they don’t make tools like that anymore. Thanks for the tour.
