There you go WayneC.

I was holding off on posting pictures until my new shop is built, but that has been delayed, so decided to throw up some photos as it exists now.

A place for everything and everything in it’s place. It must be a pleasure to work in. Do you have plans for the pot-bellied stove? Keep you toasty warm this winter?

Peter, the pot-belly stove will get put back into service one of these days, but currently I have a Hot One® 240 volt heater mounted on the wall keeping me toasty. Given that white stuff has been falling from the sky this morning, I am glad I made that purchase. :-)

That’s a nice, well equipped shop. I like how you have set it up and organized it. I especially like the armchair! Most good woodworking starts by contemplating the project in a comfortable chair.

-- Happy woodworking!

Thanks Blake. I consider the armchair to be an integral part of the shop. I have considered upgrading it to a ‘thinking couch’, but I’m afraid the planning process might become rather lengthy and interfere with production. :-)

I am glad that this post came up to the top of my list. You have a nice shop. It looks like you have ample space and a good collection of tools. I could easily work in your shop.

I like the router station. That is a nice addition to your shop equipment. And I love the view from your shop as well. They are so prolific that they are a nuisance but I enjoy watching them nonetheless.

thanks for the post.

One of the best shops I’ve seen. Nice projects to.
Obvious talent, thanks for sharing.


p.s. check out my shop and let know what you think.

All you need now is a coffee maker. You’re fortunate, my wife won’t let me have the whole garage here in Gainesville.

spanky46: Thanks! I did like that shop! Having moved a year ago, I need to update my picutes to show the new shop. Different configuration, but works for me.

8iowa: The coffee maker wasn’t that far away, believe me! I am fortunate. My wife has no problem with my commandeering the garage for a workshop, as long as her bench gets setup also.

Hey gbvinc – was just going through the shops and see now that there are three of us from the Jerome area – your shop looks great – and lots of tools – great place to spend these cold winter days – and maybe some of the nice ones too.

Thanks Larry! I just added a Delta Lathe to the mix. I do need to update these photos though to show my current shop. The new one is not quite as spacious as your shop, but it works for me.

I do spend as many of those cold winter days as possible in the shop. Especially when that east wind is blowing. Three shops in Jerome now! Hmmm. One is expected, two is a coincidence, and three, well, three…it must be the some kind of conspiracy forming! We should all meet up at Idaho Joe’s for breakfast one of these days and compare notes.

...and you guys can listen to me whine about my 70’s craftsman bandsaw and how I don’t even own a lathe. Drum sander! Don’t even get me started….Looking forward to the new photos.
