My shop- The Cave
I have a SawStop and made folding out feed tables for the router and saw . This summer I made two work benches Maple- Walnut with Maple Birdseye drawer fronts .
I like having two benchs because I can butt them up to each other to make one long bench 11ft or back to back to make an approx 5.5by 4.5 ft square or an L shape or T shape. They also act as out feed tables for my tablesaw when cutting longer than 5 ft .

Tools = Dewalt 735 13” planer. Jet = jointer -Bandsaw saw -dust collecter – belt&disk sander- spindle sander.
PerfomaX 16-32 drum sander. PowerMatic 2800 drill press- PowerMatic 3520b Lathe .
Rikon – Mini lathe. Makita 10” slidiing compound mitersaw.
Plus Lots of hand tools =Hand planes – chisels Etc.

I also built a 13’X10’ shop in my backyard for all my finishing – veneering & Lapidary = working with stone

If you’d like to see More of my bench-s Etc. I’ll have pictures in the photo section.
I’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have & thanks for Checking me out!

Why, why, WHY do you people make these furniture-grade workbenches?! Anything that beautiful I’d be scared to death to knick it! I’d stick that thing in the middle of my living room and just admire it. :)

I use my garage as a shop too, except I have to get the cars back in in the evening. Next house gets a garage just for the shop!

Ok, and I want your saw, too!

Rj,

You have a very well organized shop and I absolutely love the table saw set up. You have a nice design on the outfeed table as well as a wonderful saw. Of course I also enjoyed seeing the benches. These are too beautiful for shop cabinetry. But you do have a nice shop in which to play. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the shop tour. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Rj,

Just checked out the pixs of your shop!! Man, I’m going to have to clean all of the drool off of my keyboard. Great selection of tools and a beautiful workbench/storage.

Your spacious, clean & beautiful shop with beautiful bench is really inspiring me. I would be sorry to let it unvisited for even an hour in a day. Take good care of your SawStop…

Finally, very nice shop.

It’s a shame you couldn’t get some better tools or prettier workbenches ;-).

On my list of project I’ve just finished adding the outfeed table and a nice workbench.

I’m also about to go add another blog entry:

Envy.

Good work, RJ. Look forward to seeing other projects coming from you.
