This is my small shop here in ohio. My shop is a one car garage that is connected to the house. I don’t have all of the garage to my self there storage in the other half. I have a lathe from harbor freight I like it a lot but sometimes the tailstock slips when tightening the work down, A lot of my tools are from HFT. I got the belt and disk that someone gave me for free!! Lumber storage is just stacked in the corner. notice the welding helmets, I can do some stick welding hardly do any more because I like woodworking a lot better but it’s nice to have. I hope that you can get ideas from my shop it’s small I try to keep it organized as possible.
Thanks for looking!!

How do you like the HF lathe … any problems or comments on it?

You have a wonderful little shop and it looks like it would be a pleasure to work in. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

You do have a good looking shop that is neat, orderly and well organized. You also have added some nice cabinetry in there that give you quite a bit of storage space. And this does look like a shop that would be fun to work in.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

hey brother, i have the same lathe and i love it. Did you get the warranty with it? If not, go back and do it. I’ve traded mine in 4 times now and all they want is $50 for a new warranty. HFT rocks. That is Absolutely the best lathe for the money. I use mine everyday and tend to go through bearings about once a year. Just be careful with the toolrest, they break fairly easy, just round your big blanks before putting it on. I do it with a hand planer.
Nice shop man

I’d be right at home in your shop Matt.
I bet you get plenty of hours of fun & relaxation in there.
