Very nice… Functional. I like the bench and the tool storage. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for your projects.

Gizmo – lovely looking building and a very nice shop. I always like to see evidence of some work having been done in shop pictures.

I like the jointer. It is a smooth and powerful machine. I tweaked the outfeed table a little and that’s all. I have not done much face surfacing yet; mainly edge jointing. Since I take classes on the weekend I like to save the wear and tear for the school machines. :)

Thanks for all of the comments. Like all shops it is evolving as I figure out how to work in the given amount of space.

A good looking shop there Giz. I love that workbench. Did you build that yourself? What are its dimensions? I need to build one for myself, so I am trying to get ideas.

Bill. Check out my project page. The top is a premade one from woodcraft. 24”x60”

The plans come from Getting Started in Woodworking, Shop Projects. I made the bench in a couple of weekends. I read the Workbench Book, by Landis. I made the legs a little longer since I am tallish. The joinery is all biscuits and lag bolts or screws. I could blog some construction pictures if people are interested.

It is completely do-able.

Found you via houseblogs.net. Nice shop! But presumably you have a 100 amp panel, not a 100 watt?

Didn’t I see a different view of this shop in some weird guys comic strip? Or some guys weird comic strip?
Looked pretty messy after 5 hours.
Is this where you’re storing all that Canadian lumber?

Fir is your wood of choice, correct?
