Thought that I would take the time to update my shop again. I moved from my old house into one I am renting and just never had it clean enough to take photos. So here it is.
The tools I have are:
Kreg pneumatic pocket borer
Ridgid table saw
ridgid 13” planer
router table
grizzly lathe
grizzly 17” bandsaw
grizzly 6” jointer
Delta 1hp dust collector
dewalt 12” sliding compound miter saw
ryobi drill press
ryobi scroll saw
benchtop oscillating spindle sander
leigh jig
a bunch of chisels, scrapers, misc hand tools, compressor, nail guns, etc.

This little shop is a work in process. Thanks for looking.

Well not as big as before but I guess a lot cheaper to keep running. Good luck on getting back on your feet.

You have a nice shop space that you have organized well. I can well understand your frustration with downsizing like this but hopefully, with the lower overhead that you have with this shop, you can start getting some paying commissions. Hugs and kisses are nice but I understand the need to bring home something more substantial for your efforts. I really like the cabinet rack. That is a good idea. I have thought about building something like this but, when I have multiple glue-ups, stained/finished pieces, I generally have built temporary support out of 2×4 material but this your rack is much more convenient and mobile.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed the visit.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I hope the economy has mercy on me and I survive this too. Now if only I can somehow avoid the next obstacle life is going to throw at me; foreclosure.

Hi kolwdwkr;

I know the feeling of being down on your luck. Try to keep in mind, you come in with nothing, and you go out with nothing. The rest is just details.

Every situation is just temporary, so don’t sweat it. It’s the ying and yang. Right now you’re on the yang.

You have too much talent to stay down for long.

I wish you all the best.

Hey, I know the feeling. When I had my cabinet shop I went from a 3000 sq ft shop down to 240 sq ft shop. I had to sell a bunch of good equipment when I downsized. But I’m making due with the smaller shop and the cheaper equipment. I agree with everyone else, you got too much talent to stay down. Keep a positive outlook and you’ll get back on your feet soon.

Looks like you have made the best possible use of the space Keith. I like the way you store those circular saw blades.

Nice shop, and nice equipment. Do you do a lot of face frame cabinetry. Those kreg machines are costly but probably worth it all if you do a lot of pocket hole joinery. Very nice.

Nice shop. It’s helped you make some nice projects. I too have the Ridgid TS3650 and the Ridgid 13” planer. Love them both.
