I do most of my work in my 10×10 woodshed. The building is unheated and has no electricity other than power generated from a solar array on the roof to give me lights. Everything else has to be supplied from an extension cord. To put it bluntly if its cold or too wet outside (november-march) i try not to spend much time in the shed and do more work in my basement. In the summer i get more work done which I am sure the neighbors just love when I am running my equipment until the wee hours (especially when im using my anvil).

My 1969 Dewalt/Black and Decker radial arm saw is my workhorse right now. I modified the original stand it is on with some drop-leaves so it can expand to 7 feet long and be stowed away more easily. Since space is at a premium in my “shop” everything has to be able to either move or be compact enough to get stowed away when not in use.

Last year i added a jointer and 12” bandsaw to my shop as well as a brand new dewalt 734 planer which has proven to be a godsend when it comes to using rough materials.

As of right now I dont get as much use as i’d like since i got laid off and went back to college . However, I am planning on adding a second shed this summer to store lumber as well my fabrication tools(my welder lives in a bedroom closet right now.)

Emart, this is a pretty nice set-up that you have put together. You may not have the biggest shop around but you have done well with the space that you have.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

Emert, I’d say that’s a very workable shop. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Awesome use of space, and some great old iron in there too! Stunning you could do so much with so little space. Great job!

Very cool bandsaw. Reminds me of an old Buick. I have a very similar RAS. Nice shop!

Lotsa Craftsman equipment. I upgraded my jointer (the same as yours), to the Grizzly G0586, and luv it.
