I’m still in the process of setting up my small shop; but it’s mine ALL MINE!!!.

It started as neglected 30’s single car garage and after a good part if the fall and my money I’m in the process of setting it up, building shelves, storage spaces and day dreaming. In the spring I plan to tackle the floor which was poured years after it was built and less then level. Looking for ideas on what others have done.

The pictures aren’t great but I’ll update as I clean things up a bit.

3/7/11 I added a few new pictures of the shop. I’m still in the process of getting jigs and some cabinets made but at least it’s looking more like a shop. With the weather getting nicer I plan plumb in a metal air line.

Joe, this is a nice looking shop that you have to work in. I have always thought that having a stand alone shop is the way to go. And putting your dust collector in a separate building is a good idea too, especially for controlling the noise. The shop looks to be pretty well organized and mobilizing our power tools is a necessity for those of us with smaller shops.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Joe, you have a wonderful shop. I love the building and what you have done with it. You’ve got a great dust system and lots of nice tools and equipment. Congratulations on a job well done.

I love remodels like that! You sure took that diamond in the rough and polished it up!

Hey! I like what you have done – a great job of making the best use of a small space. I wouldn’t be surprised if there had been a horse in there way back when.

I’m not sure about horses but I found some very old NJ license plates used to hold shelves from the 20’s.

Thanks 4 the tour Joe.
Looks like you have done a great job remodeling your shop.
I wish I had your arsenal of Jet machines.
Keep up the great woodwork and welcome to Lumberjocks too.

Great job on saving the old structure :) I love to see things revived and re-used to a different function and it looks like your shop is going to be great and so are the projects out of it :)

Nice looking shop….you have brought it a long way…

by the way, I collect license plates, if you’d like to chat.
I’m always in the market for older plates. Send me a private email if you have any you’d like to part with.
Thanks!

That’s really taking shape! Your before photo is a really good reference to how far along you have come with this project. That poor thing looked like it needed a bulldozer and complete rebuild, but you really brought it back to life!

Good tool selection too!
