I have a small, cozy workshop that takes up about 3/4 of the basement. I actually like to consider it more of a studio than a workshop. Someday I will have my dream, 1500 square foot, ground level shop but for now this is perfect! The beers taste pretty good in it also (of course after all the tools are put asleep for the night).

I have to agree with 8iowa, Jeff. You certainly have a nice shop in which to work. It is well organized and you have made pretty effective use of the space that you have available.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

I can only echo what has been said above, nice, clean and tidy shop. Thanks for the tour.

Well glad you guys like it. I tried to utilize every inch of the place…but I could always do more. The bandsaw is a Rikon 14” deluxe. I chose the saw for its smaller size but still having a 13” resaw…love the thing so far. It really isn’t that tall….the basement has low ceiling:-) I had upgraded from a Grizzly 14” deluxe…which is now at my parents house.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Great collection of tools in a tidy shop. Looks like you’ve got everything you need. The level of your projects suggest you have everything you need as well, including a great imagination.

Nice shop, Triumph. Someday, when I grow up, I’ll graduate to a real bandsaw like that…good to see the air filter!

Jeff, I noticed the small pedestal (platform) in the first picture. Do you suffer from cold floors as I do?
