I run a 30×50 shop at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s Arts & Crafts Center in Silver Spring. I was blown away when I first saw the shop because I grew up useing my father’s 20×20 shop, so this was a nice change. Now I wish I had more room, but isn’t that the way it is in every shop. Sadly it’s not my shop to do what I wish in. We serve the military personel and their families in the area. So most of my day is spent assisting patrons. Though I do get to play some too. We have 2 10” Delta Unisaw table saws, 14” Delta radial arm saw, 8” Delta DJ-20 jointer, 24” Delta RC-63D Planer, 14” Delta bandsaw, 20” Delta bandsaw, and a Delta shaper (that, I’m a little ashamed to admit, I’m a little scared to use) plus all the assorted hand power tools includeing Festool sanders and routers. The nice thing about being at a government facility, having access to a government Impact Credit Card, the bad thing, dealing with all the political red tape to get something done.
