Gidday from sunny Queensland in Australia.
Been watching for a while now and thought that it was time to join in.
As for MY workshop, it is always a work in progress moving things around finding a better workflow [as Marc Spagnuolo says].
The main work space is 20 feet by 40 feet in the old imperial measure. Also a 20’ by 20’ wood storage area off the side of the main shed. 8 double flouros for good light and 14 double 240 volt power points for good access to the ‘green steam’. Most of my machinery is from ‘Carba-tec’ , the largest supplier of wood working tools and equipment here in OZ,
Well as to the list
12” table saw i/c INCRA fence system and mitre express and mitre 2000
14” bandsaw with 8” rise and 3/4” resaw blade
10’ sliding compound miter saw
Dewalt 10” radial arm saw and bench
6” and 9” jointers
15’ industrial thicknesser [ 8” depth 15amp 3hp single phase]
Bench oscillating spindle sander
16” drum sander
6” belt 9” disc sander
12” disc sander
Carpenters workbench with 18” front vice and L-shaped tail vice and storage under
16” drill press
1×2hp and 2×1hp dust extractors
Leigh FMT
Leigh D4R with Finger Joint and Isoloc 1A templates
Home built router table and 13 routers [ yes 13]
Large green beer fridge in the corner
A mobile clamp rack with heaps of clamps [ but never enough]
not to mention all the other hand and power tools

To this add over 20 ton of timber and a great love of making quality saw dust and there you have it
so cheers beers and happy woodplay from me to you.
regards

Larry, your shop sounds interesting. But I can’t see to be able to see the pictures. I am not sure what is going on as I have not seen this before.

This is much better!!! You have a really nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of room (you need it with all the tools that you have in there) and some nice headroom as well. You have a nice collection of power tools to play with as well. It certainly looks like you have a lot going on in there. Those are some nice cutting boards and bandsaw boxes that you have in progress. And those are some gorgeous slabs that you have beside your bench. I can envision some nice projects in them. I would enjoy working in a shop like yours.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Nice Shop. 20 tons of lumber; you have a lot of projects to make. What type of wood do you mostly use?

Hey larry its nice to come across a fellow Queenslander. Youve got a nice little setup by the look of things. I have to ask, where abouts do you source your timber? Anyway all the best

Tasmanian blackwood is imported directly from Tasmania lol
NG Rosewood and Purple heart I get from Morningside in Brissie
Silky oak from Woodford
Maple from a little mill in the Diamond valley just north of here via mooloolah
others stuff from here and there
let me know what exactly you want and I will give you a headsup

im just curious because it seems that the best place (that i can find) has been lazarusus(?) timbers, there just at Banyo (im right in the cbd) but they seem very pricey.
Thanks!

Yeah Gareth Lazaridies is a it on the dear side.. I will put together a few places for you to try. Failing that shoot out to see me in Caboolture and I will sell you a small bit of what you need.

Nice looking shop. It must get hot and cold in there.

Can you work in it year around?

I live in Queensland beautiful one day perfect the next.
Yes I can work year round and at night too!
Hot ..Yes but not like Death Valley
Cold.. Yes but not like Your bitter north with snow and blizzards.
Sometimes about 3 times a year I wear a sweater/cardigan/jumper…[not sure what you would call a woollen over garment.] so nearly all of the time in shorts and t-shirt. And when its hot I cool down internally with a XXXX [ thats Queenslander for BEER cos we cant spell]
Thank you for comments…yes it is a good shop…still evolving and alot better than what I started with..6’ by 6’ tin garden shed.>>15’ by 14’>>24’ by 27’ and now 20’ by 40’ with 20’ by 20’ wood storage.
