United States

My shop is in the basement. I kind of took over, knocked down a wall of the rumpus room. There are various wall coverings from paneling to Sheetrock, I have yet to make them all match. Too much to do.

My equipment consists of a bit of stuff. Steel City TS (router mounted in the wing), my bench, an old Craftsman Drill Press, Powermatic Jointer, Dewalt planer, Rikon BS, Thickness sander, lathe, scroll saw, Vacuum press, V-drum sander, Chop saw, CNC, dust collector, spindle sander… Lots of power hand tools. I like to keep most of the small things in drawers and cabinets to keep the dust in control.

It is kind of a weird setup with the Jointer, Planer, Band Saw, and Thickness Sander all in row, in the middle of room. Works for me.

Steve: Very nice. Looks like all of the necessary tools and then a few special ones.

How is the Computer Aided Routing Station working out.

The last I read you were still making adjustments to it.

Are you going to have the picnic this year?

Hi Steve,

Nice set up.

I think maybe matching wall finishes is a bit over rated!

very cool, I like how the machines that require lumber access on the infeed and outfeed are located in the middle of the room. looks like a very efficient use of space.
