I see you have found a way to keep your workbench cleaned off. Make it your out-feed table.

Nice shop and be careful that it doesn’t become a mother-in-law quarters.

Hi Rick,

Your shop pictures were posted before I came on board but I am glad that the post came up on my review list. It looks like you have a nice shop and I really like the table saw and workbench combination. This is a better set-up than the PM2000. :) I don’t see how you keep the bench so clean. The only time mine is this clean is when my wife starts yelling at me to clean up the clutter. It seems that every hand tool I own migrates to my assembly bench when I start a project.

You have a nice shop and a nice collection of tools. I would enjoy working in there.

Scott, thanks for the nice comments. When I first started working wood, I was in a garage that I had to clean and move tools after each use so I go in the habit of keeping this clean and I could find what I needed the next time I worked. I guess the habit remained over the years. Mind you, those pictures were taken before a piece of wood was cut, but overall I try to keep it straight. A lot safer too when you don’t worry about tripping over things. Thanks again

RickL, another outstanding shop. I spotted you on Roll of the Dice so I thought I’d check out your shop. Man it’s cool. Like your jointer, “got one just like it”, I take a quote from the flm Terminal Velocity where Charlie Sheen steals the yellow Corvette from the car wash. Sorry for the interjection, back to your shop. I think you’ll be making all kinds of dust there.

RickL, please don’t get me wrong I used the term of dust as the highest level of accomplishment.

Thanks Jim. I built the bench a couple of years ahead
of the shop while working in the garage. It took 4 of us to move
it! I built it from a set of plans in Fine Woodworking, I added the cabinets below off my design.
