my shop started as a open aired goat barn 9’x 15’ 10 yrs ago closed it in ,doubled,then expanded to a workable 28’x28’ shop less than 50’ from my front door but things change as im sure 90% of lumberjocks have had to deal with shop evolution to some degree or the other and to spare you the gory details i offer the” cliff notes”......
id like to introduce you to my lil friends ..and first off let me square yall off i do dot own these tools
f close friend of mine (who actually gave me some scraps some 10 years ago and gave me the bug)
has struggled to make his cabinet door /millwork shop thrive given the comepitition from our world wide corprate funded cut throght rugg pulling economicly suicidal …..well you get the picture
any way faced with my best year yet i was dreading the realisation of hiring someone (uhhhgg) im a bit of a stickler as to the i build things you know the right way (really ..not my way the right way)
so he and I were talking and he suggested incorperating machinery being the neanderthal i am {makes sence i mean i could get a lil closer to the early twentieth century with out giving up my hand tools ..right } so i rent a studio space and that affords me the liberty to conduct my bussiness and play with these Sweet tools , there is a straight line rip saw w/ 3/34” thickness cutting capacity
12” grizzly table saw w/8’x8’ off feed
8’ x 12” spiral head joiner
24” spiral head planer think it 6” or better thickness capacity
36” wide belt /12’ multilevel gue clam rack in back ground
and last but not least a massive air induction vented through the roof spray booth
now to show all this i feel kind of funny cause not 1 picture of my much loved hand tools made the cut im
just noticing and whaty bothers me is im gonna hit the post button with out editing and rewrighting
so mabey im more flexable than id like to admit …...

Boy, I’d sure like to come play with your tools. But you don’t sound like you play well with others. Peace Brother.

Nice setup! Are you happy with the Grizzly time saver? I’ve been thinking seriously about purchasing one here in the near future. Any advice? Thanks Bryan

i was just giving you a hard time cause of what you said in your write-up…but an extended workshop blog to include your other tools would work real well!
