OK, this is my first post! Be gentle.

These pics were of my old workshop space in a corner of an abandoned shopping center in the heart of my city’s old downtown district. When I found this place I thought I had landed in 960 sq ft of Nirvana: the rent was ridiculously cheap, I had a freight elevator to move material in and no one around to make noise complaints. But, alas my stay was pretty short. The landlord and one of my roommates had a falling out and he kicked everyone – including me – out. My stuff is now sitting in a barn deep in the countryside, covered with paste wax and plastic wrap.

P.S. Please forgive the horrible piles of tools. . . I was a full time student at the time and could not afford to build much in the way of storage. When I get my new workspace, I will redeem myself as a Lumberjock and post a workshop with plenty of storage and work surfaces.

P.P.S. Yes, that is a Sawstop. Had to give up a lot of college parties to get it. Totally worth it.

This looks like a pretty nice shop in which to work. With this much glass you had an abundance of natural light in there and you have managed to accumulate some nice tools. I hope that you can get your shop up and running soon.

You got a nice, early start to things. Too bad about losing the shop space though… Something else will come up… Just hang in there!

Love the saw, it is on my wish list.
Hang in there bu, once you get going and settle in then the real shop starts to develop.

Sillac,

Unfortunately not, I had to move to Southern Ontario for a contract postition and was forced to put all the tools into storage, where they will sit for many another month.
