My workshop has all the shortcomings which the manuals are warning against. BUT, as in that famous song by Billy Holiday, I, too, say it’s my shop.

Jim, thank you so much, very kind of you as usual!

btw, you are always so quick in commenting that you make me recall the cowboys of the old Far West :-)...you should change your nickname to the quicker :-))) ...(I’m joking, hope it’s evident. Being myself one who enjoys meeting people, I make some gaffes from time to time, trying to be entertaining, you know)

Antonio, normally I would have chimed in with a request for pictures too, but it looks like you have this covered. :) Needless to say visual tours of other shops are always well received.

Bon jorno! You live in one of my favorite places. I was lucky enough to spend time in Pordenone, Aviano, and Treviso. I was all over northern Italy. I wish I was there now. Belated welcome to lumberjocks. Ciao!

Antonio, this is a nice shop that you have to work in. It looks like you have organized your lumber well and you certainly have enough there to keep yourself busy for a while! You shop appears to be well organized and you have some nice tools to work with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Thank you all, and thank you Hairy, I’m happy you have enjoyed Italy so much (I for one would like to visit US instead :-) )

antmjr,
Nice horses and I love your shop! I especially noticed the brick wall, the metal cutting lathe, the storage racks, and the method of support for the wall bench and storage rack.

Nice shop. I like the Sliding Table Panel Saw – the European Saw made from aluminum so rusting is not an issue.

Thank you noknot! yes, the drill press is wonderful, made in Germany, 1952, bought with eBay, extremely precise.

...but, but, what about the lathe, sorry? YOU are American, you should recognize it at first sight! (I’m joking sorry :-). It’s a Craftsman lathe, built before WW2 (!), possibly in the late ‘30s, bought in Austria. How it ended up there it’s a mystery, maybe with the American Army, who knows. Atlas/Craftsman lathes weren’t commercialized in Europe, as far as I know.
Thank you again.

Per Antonio da un Antonio.

I enjoyed the presentation of your shop area.
As you intimated, It’s your shop and enjoy it as it is!

My parents emmigrated to America in 1920’s and raised 5 children during the 1930 depression.

Trust you all the best in your projects and family life.

Antonia, you have a nice shop. You seem to be a man of ingenuity and there’s nothing wrong with that. A man has to use the equipment that he has not the equipment that he wants. The first is real and sits before him ready to do work whereas the latter is merely a figment of his imagination. A man has to use what he has and make it work. You have done very well for yourself, Antonio. Congratulations on your shop because you should be proud of it. My hat is off to you, sir.
