My workshop is in the basement , and when we built the house was designed by a tug of war between the shop and the family room, The space is adequate, but as we all know, is never big enough. It has it’s own 150 amp service, is completely sheetrocked and sound proofed. It has 24 4’ caged fluorescent lighting fixtures, so I have lots of light. The flooring is a floating engineered maple floor with a cushion between the vapor barrier and the floor to make it a little easier on the feet. The principal machinery: 16” Mini Max band saw, 10” delta unisaw with a Jessem sliding table, incra jig fence and excalibar guard/dust collector. As is most shops, this is the “center” when it comes to working. There is also a 6” long bed delta jointer, a General 25” dual drum sander, Dewalt 13” planer and a 10” Dewalt miter saw with a modified biesemeyer fence system. This saw and fence are built on top of 4 Craftsman tool cabinets faced with Maple and bail pulls. In the finishing area, I have a Frank Klauz design workbench, a modified Jessem router table, 12” powermatic disc sander, delta floor model drill press, general international bench model oscillating drum sander, Jet 6×89 oscillating edge sander, and a reconditioned Rockwell Delta turning lathe. All the tools are hooked up to a 3 hp Oneida cyclone dust collector. I am a fan of festool and currently have two of their sanders, and their rail saw—an awesome piece of equipment. I have several shop projects underway currently: a venturi style veneer press and a tool cabinet are both half finished as we speak, hopefully will get them finished within the month. Like all of us addicted to woodworking, I have a host of handtools, and as needs arise, add to the collection.
Well, that’s my shop, hope you enjoyed a short tour.
