I have taken my two-car garage and have transformed it into a full-blown woodshop. I have equipped my shop with mostly Shopsmith tools because of my shop’s size and the tools work great. I have the entire Incra system that was built especially for my Shospsmith and now it has become a very fine and precise woodworking system. I also have a JET 18-inch bandsaw, dedicated drum sander, Delta dust collector, miter saw, and several other tools.
My Shopsmith works great as a table saw if you know how to configure the table extensions correctly. I have ripped boards up to 12 feet long, and cut full sheets of plywood right down the center, with no problems. I know some people say that the Shopsmith used as a table saw is its weakness, but I have yet been unable to use it like you would any other ordinary table saw. I also have the bandsaw, jointer, and belt sander add-on tools. They work great and if I don’t need them I just hang them on the wall neatly out of the way. Can’t do that with stand-alone tools.
I enjoy my woodshop very much and it makes my Mrs.’ happy too because she know where I am.
I am also an avid model train hobbyist. I really enjoy creating the world in miniature and the trains make it come alive. I like modeling steam trains and the time period that they were used. I really enjoy building logging layouts. Maybe that comes from being a woodworker also.

Very nice shop. I used to do a lot of jobs in your neck of the woods. Sanger, Reedly, Duniba and Vislaia.

Did that canister top come with your dust collector?

Very nice shop. The pieces in the post are really nice. Every time I see turning like these I regret not having a lathe.

Boy do I wish my garage shop looked this good…. I’m also always glad to find another shopsmither here.

Every time I see these interesting bowls people do I think I’d like to give it a go but for some reason or other I just never seem actually take the time. I’ve got the speed reducer for the shopsmith so my low speed is just 100 rpm, I’ve got the 35 pound universal lathe tool rest, a G3 chuck and I even have the bowl turning tools (as of yet sharpened). Just need to get a hunk of wood and get to it someday.

Anyway I enjoyed the visit to your shop.

Nice looking shop, Woodburner. The project photo shows clearly that it is also very functional. Nice work.
