My shop is not much to look at compared to some, but coming along pretty well. No planer, no jointer, but will be working on that shortly. I use the router table as a jointer for now. The space is in the basement and is about 15’x30’. Major tools: Delta 10’ contractors saw, Dewalt 10’ miter saw, Bosch router table. Hand held power tools include, Dewalt plunge/fixed base router and random sander, Bosch barrel grip jigsaw among others. Small selection of hand tools, which I’m building up. Thanks for looking.

Decent sized for a basement shop, and not the cave some wind up looking like either. Thanks for posting!

The made in the USA Delta 34-444 table saw sure looks in good condition for it’s age, I have the same saw with a Unifence, bought it new in 1995. If your ever looking to improve the dust collection on it, and or improve the switch, I can point you in the right direction.

Great space, Chris! This is the first shop for me and I feel lucky to have such a large space. However, we rent and the electrical is not the greatest. Can’t expect the landlord to pay for the upgrade. So I have to be careful with the table saw, otherwise I’m lovin’ it! I only hope that when we’re in the market to buy, later this year, I can have a setup this cool.
The Delta saw is awesome! Get this! Sitting around one Sat. morning and my wife says “don’t you need a table saw?”. A quick look on craigslist, short drive to Boulder, and a couple of hours later…. It hade a little rust on the surface of the table. I cleaned that up and gave “er” a good wax. How often should I wax? Once a month with other mantiance? The first thing I want to upgrade is the switch. Yeah, any advice on that would be great. Thanks for takin’ a look fellas!!

Nice shop. You really didn’t need to put up Notty Pine Paneling. OSB board is OK.

Welcome.

Larry, this is a beautiful shop space. I love the look the finished paneling gives to your space. The tile floor adds a nice touch as well. And you have a nice start on your power tool list as well. It looks to me as if you have a well lit and spacious shop in which to work.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Larry,
That’s a great basement shop you’ve got there. I’m also a Colorado woodworker so it’s glad to have you around. Like you I wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else. Even when it rains for 5 days like it has lately. Feel free to private message me if there is anything I can do to help. Based on the pin locations we aren’t too far apart.
