Since I got my new Grizzly and have lowered it and other machinery, I thought I would post new photos.
Now I can get to my lumber rack much easier.

And the clamps are more accessible.

I can now use my shaper and bandsaw as the out feed table when needed.

Look at all that room and everything is in it’s place!

And now I can close the door and still cut wood and play in the toy box!

Thank you. I will probably redo some more. When I can’t work, I just set and look and try to utilize the space better. I have to have this new router table, but I have no idea where it will fit. Redneck logic! I can see the new laundry room out back before too long. lol Future cabinet maker? You’re gonna be there ahead of me.
Until I get my shop the way I want it I may never get there. lol Obcessive? Compulsive? Naaaaaawwww.

My best to you and your family, Rand

Very nice shop indeed, and full of great machines and tools.

If I sneak in and leave the shop with a couple of handtools in my pocket, would you know what is missing
Rand? ha ha ha…!

Wish you all the best and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing your shop with us! I can’t help but notice the working height of your equipment… Not to pry but I would guess you are in a chair… There is another fellow here that is working with a similar issue, and he has some GREAT ideas on setting things up. The two of you should talk…

I really like that Grizz benchtop jointer you have there. I was starting to think I am the only one here with a bench top unit.

Thank you for your taking the time to look. I appreciate your input. I’m sorry for the foul lighting, but I was in a hurry. I’ll repace them with better photos soon.

Hey Rand, enjoyed the shop tour.Great work space and well organized. I spied some quality tools that You surely must make good use of. I too have some welding experience and have set up a small corner for metal working. Like most, My biggest challenge in woodworking is finding spare time, but with 13 grandkids, I don’t know how You find Any time at all. I can only imagine what Christmas time around the shop must be like for You !!!

Once again great shop.

Rand – my first shop was the same size. It took me a number of years to be able to get to the 30×40 I have today! And even though I have a larger shop – I still don’t have enough room!!!! I guess we never have enough, do we?

I really do like your shop – your TS and out-feed table is great. Of course, how could I not like your latest wall cabinet. Keep on making shavings and dust! Have fun.
