I have cleaned and organized my Shop! Check out my blog for details!
At one time, I was trying to replicate the neat and organized spaces that alot of you showcase here. But over time, I realized that I was spending all of my shop time “cleaning and organizing” and making little to no progress. So, I decided that I had been happily making sawdust in my messy shop before and that I would spend the little time that I have to woodwork actually woodworking even despite the mess. So come along for a tour of my happy place (just watch out for those paint cans and extension cord lol). I work out of a 2 car garage and I often find that I do not have enough space to work so most everything is on wheels and gets rolled out into the driveway (apparently also a part of my shop). Something else to note is that the majority of my equipment was either given to me, purchased used, or purchased at deep discounts. Here we go….
This is my Delta contractor saw that I had before I got the Grizzly 1023, I currently use it for my dado set. I got this saw from a guy that advertised it on craigslist. The fence was originally included with my Grizzly saw. I made the base that it sits on for a another purpose and I adapted it to work for the saw. The drawers in the base hold blades and accessories. I have also made a crosscut sled for this (not shown).
Photos (descriptions to come, remember “a work in progress”)
This is my Delta/Rockwell 13” planer. This was given to me by a friend. It is a great machine, the only difficulty is that parts are hard to come by. This is a huge improvement over my lunchbox type planer.
This is my Dewalt 12” Miter saw purchased from the same guy that I bought the contractor saw from. Excellent machine. Also shown is my currently decommisioned mobile clamp rack.
