Many of you have heard my whine about the size of my shop and how cold it can get here in the great white North. Well last fall I lucked out and was blessed with the privilege of using all of the facility in this community shop. Please don’t ask me were it is I am sworn to secrecy and I do not want to loose my privileges . Here are a few pictures. I decided to write this because my last project was photographed on one of the TWO Saw Stops and I know I would have had to answer a lot of questions.

They had a bad accident last year and received a grant to purchase not one but two Saw Stops. The footprint of the table saws alone is bigger than my own shop! It is fully equipped and operated by a great bunch of guys. I may never be able to go back to my own shop!

Wow, that’s a heck of a loaner shop.

That is a really nice shop that you have to work in. Digs like this are certainly worth whatever it costs to be an association member. The shop facility is great and I see some wonderful tools to play with too. If I had a choice between a home shop and this one I definately would spend a lot of time in this shop, despite the “inconvenience” of having to leave home.

Great shop. As I look out my back door at my shop, maybe the shop ferry will come this summer.
