William, your shop sounds interesting. How about posting some pictures when you get an opportunity to do so. I would enjoy taking a tour of your shop.

William, this is a pretty neat shop that you have to work in. It looks like you have plenty of room in there and I have always thought that a stand alone shop is the way to go. I get yelled at occasionally when I “forget” and start up my planer too early in the morning.
You have some nice tools to play with as well. I would enjoy working in there. If I am ever in your area I will certainly take you up on the invite.
Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thanks Splint and Bill. Either of you are welcome to visit anytime. I tried to write the tour as if you were actually visiting, and I do like company. Since all my back problems began some years back (broke spine in six places in a car wreck), I don’t get much company. It’s just me, my tools and the wood. I am lucky to have the stand alone shop. Also, it is far enough away from other houses that I work a lot in the summer at night. I have planed wood all night before without any complaints. I did have one piece of oak one time that for some reason came through so loud that I decided to put it away till the daylight hours.

Hey William, I only see one BIG problem….wood storage. I know where you can store all that wood in the nice dry Mojave Desert. Of course we have a small inventory control problem. he he he And where did you find all that room. Man, I really like your shop. Does that wheelchair mean I can leave mine in the car and use it?lol

I keep two wheelchairs in the shop now, so I think you can leave yours in the car. I’ve always had two chairs so that when I get down I’ll have one in good shape for when I go somewhere and another one for when I decide to do things in it I’m not supposed to do anyway (my wife’s words). Then when my Dad passed away last year I was given the wheelchair he’d been using for about the last three years he was around. You can use his. I hope you have long arms. He weighed a lot and had one of those WIDE ones.

Nice shop mine is always under a different construction project, to make more room. I could only wish for a 40 by 50 shop area.
