My workshop is a 9’ x 20’ pre-cast concrete garage at my home just a half mile or so from the rapidly eroding boulder clay cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast. The car lives outside; the motorcycle elsewhere. It’s seriously overcrowded; more and more so with the off-cuts of wood that I can’t bring myself to throw out. Having looked at a few of the workshop pictures already posted makes me realise how ‘disgusting’ mine has become. I’ll need to do some serious tidying before I post any pictures.
The shop is equipped with a Startrite 12” x 13” bandsaw and a tiny Record bandsaw too. There’s a planer / thicknesser by Electra Beckum, a 6” belt & 9” disc sander, a home-built router table, a hefty bench drill and a 5’ Draper lathe. Plus a reasonable collection of hand tools, many quite early ones picked up at what we call car-boot sales. Oh yes, a 10” table saw that I rarely use – the noise frightens me! I turn to the bandsaw whenever possible.
SINCE I wrote the above, I’ve found some pictures I took in the days when I had room to swing cat round.
