Shop Type: Garage

Square Footage: 250-499

Shop Description:
My shop is 21×27 with a stairwell out of it to a one bedroom apartment above which I have converted to my office. I started turning the garage into a woodshop about a year and a half ago. When I started, it had one plug-in and two light bulbs. I have replaced both doors with insulated doors, replaced the old fuse box with a breaker box and wired it both for 110 and 220. I added a Jet 1 ½ hp dust collector and ran pipe to most of my machines. I have a utility sink that I need to plumb in so I don’t have to run upstairs all the time. The furnace and AC for my office is in the garage so it never gets too hot or too cold and when I need it, I have a vent that I can open in the garage. I am still working on tool and wood storage and some shop furniture. I have a bathroom and kitchen upstairs in my office and I am thinking about making the bedroom a finishing room for things small enough to get up there. My tools include a Delta Unisaw, Delta drill press, Delta band saw with a Kreg fence, a Powermatic hollow chisel mortiser, a Powermatic 15? planer, a Delta DJ20 8? jointer, a Jet slow speed wet sharpener, a Dewalt compound miter saw, an 8? bench grinder with a wolverine jig, an Earlex 5000 series HVLP spray station. We are getting there but we still have a long way to go

I’ve got big-time mortiser envy. What a wonderful shop to enjoy your family’s company in.

Thanks. We do a lot of mortis and tenon work. I had an mortiser attachment for my drill press but it was a pain to switch back and forth and when my son was making his workbench in hard maple it was bending the neck. I found this mortiser on sale and I could not be happier.

Jeff, it looks like you have a nice looking shop. It appears to be spacious and you have plenty of room to maneuver around between the different tool stations. You also have put together a pretty nice collection of tools. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the shop video. It was fun to take a tour of your shop.
