Leander, TX
United States

2 car garage slowly converted to a woodshop over the last 6 years. I blame all this woodworking on a Circ Saw I recieved for Xmas 2005. It all went downhill from there.

Phase I 2005

Phase II 2006

Phase III 2007

Phase IV 2008

Phase V 2009

New hand tool cabinet

Phase VII 2011

Phase VIII 2012
I just recently acquired a 1930’s Craftsman Lathe that belong to my Grandpa. Here is the new workbench I am making for it. Still have to make the drawers.

New mitersaw bench rebuilt with more storage.

New overhead lumber storage rack

Redryder, It originally started as more of a car oriented garage. Thus the epoxy coated floor. But then I got bitten by the woodworking bug and one car and then both got kicked to the driveway. Which is saying alot because one of them is my hotrod.

Bret, did you add the cast iron wings to your Ridgid saw? Is that the R4512?

Very nice shop, all that storage is great. In a small shop economizing space is where it is at, and storage is a huge part of the solution.

Now where is any sawdust? Even the tools and under shelves are clean!! Get to work!!!
