This is my 3rd workshop and some of the cabinets and tables are from the older ones. I built a 50×60 pole building with 14’ eves and large OH doors, then added a 24×32’ woodworking area inside with heavy insulation, storage overhead. I have two large insulated doors for access. They are each 5’x8’ built with blue stained Ponderosa Pine I purchased from a sawmill in Fossil, Oregon (In the Sticks Sawmill, which mills local woods, mostly Juniper). I have 10’ high ceilings with two rows of lights.

The center of my shop is a 1940’s Delta Unisaw that I purchased red with rust and restored it with a new unifence and uniguard. All of my other tools are on rollers that I move to a work area as needed.

I built several cabinets out of the pine lumber collection and have a few more to add.

I have been a lumber and wood scrounger all my life and was assisted by a logger father and engineer father in law. My larger shop contains my collection and I am working on using most of it while my time on earth remains.

I have collect my tools over 30+ years and now that I retired, I am spending as much time as possible in the shop.

Most of my projects have been furniture, cabinets, desks that I used in my office, home and wifes quilt and sewing studio.

I took a good look at the pictures that I posted and realized I had made quit a few improvements. These are current.

Thanks for the kind comments.
