Okay, here’s my shop – finally. I’ve been loitering around LJ’s for a few years now, but never posted any official pics of my shop as it has always been in varying states of disaster. BUT due to an event I had in the shop this past weekend I was highly motivated to change that – and a friend of mine Dave (from the famed 1950's Craftsman Garage) came over early and took some pics, so photo cred goes to him.
So, I present my shop.
The space is a 24’x35’ detached garage. I have a thing for old tools, so most of the stationary tools are from ‘59 or older – it’s my dorky goal to have all of them fit that criteria; I still have a few to go.
I really enjoy restoring old tools too – so that’s a hobby in of itself.
At this point I primarily make small items, hand tools, refinishing pieces, and using up tons of reclaimed wood. I really want to get into fine furniture making, but this is a process, and my process will require me to finish a few more tools, specifically my planer, and to find a good stock/supplier for good/inexpensive hardwood – in Colorado all of it is expensive except Kill Beetle.
Anyways take a gander. I like it. And love to work in it, and on it. Now if I can only keep it remotely this clean and organized.
Comments welcome, and I’ll be happy to respond to any inquiries.
Thanks for checking it out!
