Starting with the heart of the workshop is the PM66 cabinet saw. I recently shut down my website but my youtube video is still active.

Rick, you have a really nice shop in which to work. It looks to be well organized and you appear to have plenty of room to maneuver between the tool stations. I like the headroom that you have in there. I have always thought that storing lumber and plywood vertically was the way to go. It makes getting at a board in the back of the stack much easier. I don’t have the vertical space to do this (92” to the joists) and that means, if I want a particular board, then all the other pieces on top of it have to be removed to get at the board. The ramp that you added to the stairs is another well-thought addition to your shop. I am just glad that my shop is in our walk-out basement but this is a nice addition for shops with stairs to climb.

You also have a pretty nice collection of tools to play with as well. I particularly like your collection of planes. I have long neglected the development of my hand skills and admire those woodworkers who take the time and put in the effort to develop these time honored techniques. And you have a nice table saw to work with. I am a Powermatic fan and the 66 is a real workhorse.

This is certainly a shop I would enjoy working in. Thanks for the video. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thank you for the comments, guys. The tool inventory has been many years in the making and has gone through many incarnations. Glad you enjoyed the tour.

Rick, you really have a fabulous shop. I don’t know what else anybody would need. Congratulations.
