After having my shop for going on 15 years now, i finally decided to insulate the ceiling and got things moved around some and cleaned up some and so Ive taken new pictures and thought i would share them with you, i know i always enjoy seeing someone else’s shop for ideas and inspiration, and maybe my new pictures will do just that for someone else

The shop is 20×30 and has 10 foot high walls, Ive got wall fans mounted throughout for cooling in the summer and i have a total of 12 4 tube florescent tube lighting to brighten things up-

..

the main work horse is my delta 3hp 10 inch table saw.. the other main tool i use is my 15 inch delta planer, when i built my home i used reclaimed antique southern heart pine to cover the walls inside my home and i knew i would need a strong hefty planer to do so much work , and this planer has not failed me once, im using the same blades that came with the saw and they are in there for the last time, Ive purchased a new set and will install them soon. All of my main tools are delta, i purchased them in 1996 and they have not let me down once.

The rest of the tools i have are all assorted brands…mainly dewalt, porter cable, Milwaukee and makita i try to purchase tools that i know will last and fit my budget..some of the newer tools are very good…but very costly, and ive seen some cheaper tool’s do really well ,the last main tool i made this last spring, and its my new work bench, its a project well worth looking at in my projects , so go take a look at the closer details of it…i love it and what it has added to my shop,

thanks for looking at my shop and hope you enjoyed a taste of my wood working world

That is such a COOL shop!!! It is so CLEAN, Grizz! It is going to be a great and warm place for you to work this winter. I am so happy for you getting this done! It is, indeed an inspiration. I can’t wait to see what will come out of it next!

Congratulations, my friend! :)

O.K…......looks like you got enough of the tools to do the right things. Clean up is a bummer, I know but when you finally get around to doing it, you can set with you back to that bench and smile! If you want to take a peak at my messy shop, the link to it is on my website at:

You’ve got me beat….........sort of and in many ways.

Now if you insulate the walls then You’ll be set for year round working.

Nice job Griz.

Wow a nail keg at the foot of your saw. I’ve not seen one of them for quite a while.

Good looking shop Grizzman. I always like to see a neat, organized shop. You must not get very much cold weather in your country. No insulation? Thanks for sharing.

God Bless

You’ve got a great shop, my friend, and with a great selection and assortment of tools.

But … what’s more important—by a country mile—is that you produce such wonderful work IN that shop, and that you enjoy your time there so thoroughly.

So … great job on the clean up. Great job on getting the pink stuff almost all done.

And … have fun messing it up, all over again :-)

Yeah: the South got hit by a wicked cold snap, and news-making ice storms !

Thanks for the tour of your shop Grizz! You can’t go wrong with that vintage of Delta saw and planer. You’ve made a great space to pursue your craft.
