Looks like a nice shop Tyler. You are certainly more organized than I ever hope to be. Thanks for sharing.

Callum my shop is about 12×13 or so. It’s a bit small but I surely have cranes a lot of stuff in it haha. The big downside of my shop is that I can only handle about five foot boards on my table saw and even less on my other machines. This is okay for me now but I wish it was a bit bigger to do larger things.

Roper thanks for the advice. I have heard that before I think but never really did it because the plane I have is a very old one and isn’t good for doing much. I’ll start doing that though. Thanks

Anthrax I listen to a lot of music but mostly like pop rock and hip hop those sort of things. I really like One Republic, The Fray, and Coldplay. I don’t really like Heavy metal though lol, I know that you do :)

Corey My table saw is okay I guess it works pretty much flawlessly on 3/4 inch and under even on really dense woods as long as you have a good sharp blade. 1 inch and higher I change my blade to a ripping blade because otherwise my saw will bog down and burn like crazy and set off the fire alarms. ha ha. All and all I’m glad I made the purchase because it is a perfect size, if I need to cut things big it can cut up to 32 inches with the extension wings out, and it has pretty good power for its class of saw. If I could fit one in my shop I would save up for a long time and get the saw stop contractor version but there just isn’t a way to put that big of saw in my shop. My dad refuses to give up more of our already small basement. loll. O well it works for now and I can always get a bigger saw later on down the road.
