Currently using a detached 2 car garage that was built in the 50’s. It needed a lot of work. The floor was replaced since the old concrete had completely broken apart. I’ve since added a subpanel, wired the lights and outlets, insulated the garage door, added attic vents, added a door and built cabinets.

Nice shop, nice equipment… I really like your rolling bases on your tools, I do wonder about the jointer though. Is that knob on the top of it ever a problem using the bench or table saw?

Yeah the knob is annoying when cutting large sheet goods, but since the jointer is on a mobile base it’s pretty easy to move it out of the way. I currently share one DC hose between the planer and the jointer so it’s wheeled out of the way and closer to the DC when I am using it anyways.

Jon, you have a nice looking shop in which to work. I like the way you have organized your table saw and jointer around outfeed table which doubles as a bench. You have added some nice cabinetry to your shop as well. It is clean, well organized and you have a nice set of tools to play with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Great shop! I like how you have it organized with the mobile equipment bases and the nice clean-lines benches and millwork. The outfeed table at the table saw looks like it would make a nice-sized assembly table too.

Nice shop Jon, I see we have many things in common besides our location. I also have fallen victim to Ridgid tools and your garage door insulation solution. Love your big Norm workbench.
