In the summer time, I am able to take up half of my dad’s 40’ by 35’ shop. But in the cold winter of Alberta, things that are outside in the summer, are stored in the shop. This includes a car, a large Kubota tractor, a 660 yamaha Rhino, a golf cart and a couple quads. My dad’s helicopter takes up half of the shop year round. So when all of these things are put in the shop, I am left with less than a quarter of the shop, which I have made plenty functional. My/my dad’s power tools include:
- Bench-top Delta Drill press
- Bench-top Delta Grinder
- Bench-top Delta comber sander
- Bench-top Delta 9” bandsaw (retired and stored)
- Bench-top General International Grinder with multiple Wolverine sharpening systems (for turning tools)
- Master craft router
- Multiple Dremels
- Dewalt scroll saw
- Dewalt 10” sliding mitre saw
- Grizzly G5013×2 Bandsaw
- King Canada Wood Lathe
When I started woodworking, my dad had the first four on the list in the shop already and I acquired the other tools over the other past 3 years from birthdays and christmases. I have a drafting table that one of my dad’s employees gave me along with a full set of drafting supplies. In the middle of my work area is the assembly table. The thing I use most is the shop BY FAR is my ear muffs and safety glasses. There is rarely a moment when these leave my head. Another thing that is always used is the radio, its always nice to have music playing while working. I used to be very messy in the shop and my dad was really good about it. Now I cannot stand if my work area is messy, and I try to stay organized. I am not quite at the organization level I would like to be at but I am working towards it. Overall I love the shop an spend all the time I can in it.

Ryan that is a great looking shop, and its even better because you and your dad can work together. I have to admit yours is the first shop, I’ve seen, with a helicopter in it, that’s pretty cool!

Ya, that’s a great shop. If my dad ever tried to park his helicopter in the shop, we’d have a talk….......

Wow, I haven’t seen a helicopter in any tool magazine. Turn that thing on it’s side and you have one fast lathe/Sander. :) Awesome shop and great job on the crane. That looks like a teadious project.

Thanks for your nice/humorous comments, I am very happy with the shop. Not too surprised that you all are interested in the helicopter, not a common occurrence I guess. :)

A helicopter in the shop? Now THAT’s one heck of a “rotary tool”!

That’s not a helicopter….It’s a multi-tool! Accessories extra.
1) Disk Sander
2) Lathe
3) Oscilating Spindle Sander
4) Cut-Off Tool
5) Circle Cutting Jig
6) Auxillary Motor/Drive
7) Vertical Lift Assist
8) Paint Sprayer
9) Dry Fit DIS-assembly tool
10) Air & Shop Cleaner/Re-organizer

That’s all I got!

Oh Yeah: Nice shop. Thanks for the tour. Can I have a ride home in the multi-tool?

Hey Ryan, great shop you’ve got there. I am absolutely in love with the crane. Since I live really close, maybe I can come by and see that crane sometime.
