I have invaded a bit more of my basement, I think I have over taken every inch that I can get. Pretty small but it works for me.
Working from left to right looking at my bench I have the following machines; Delta bandsaw, Skil belt/disc sander, Preformax spindle sander, drill press, Hitachi Scroll Saw.
The drill and belt/disc sander are from my dad, he was moving and gave me many of his woodworking tools. Both machines are older then I am, lol, but they still work.
I have a foot or more of space between all of the machines to work, more space around the drill press so that is where most of my “desk work” takes place

Hey, welcome to LJ. I too taught middle school tech and woodworking. I found that clocks for the older kids were a great project. We did simple pen holders and cut out letters with a band and jig saw to make signs and practice layout and measuring. The older kids always had a blast with the CO-2 cars also. with the 7th graders I did a gumball machine, simple measuring, most could be done on a drill press and jig saw, then nailed together with hand brad nails. Not too bad when you get to teach your hobby as a career, isn’t it?

I have been teaching 10 years, how about you?

That is a nice scroll saw that you have in your end of the shop. In addition to a lathe this is another tool that is on my wish list. as I have always wanted to learn how to use one of these.

You have a nice space in which to work. Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
