This is my workshop that I put together back in 2002-2003. As you can see I have the full Ridgid line of shop tools. These, along with the majority of tools, I bought at Home Depot at reduced prices, either because they were reconditioned or there was a damaged packaging on the box, or was returned by a customer and was sold at a reduced price. I have to tell you that I turned out some really good stuff with these tools. Back then they offered a 100% lifetime guarantee on all of the Ridgid stuff so I didn’t feel I could go wrong. As you look at the wall, you will notice that most of the tools are in some type of wooden bracket keeping them organized. I made these myself rather than purchase sometihing that wouldn’t fit the tool. The shop was an old storage building that was about 1700 sq. ft. I wish I had it now. Unfortunately, in December of 2003 I went to work in Iraq. Not knowing when I would be back and rather than let the stationary tools gather rust in a storage unit I sold them to a good friend of mine who was also a woodworker. He is still using them today. I returned back from Iraq last July, 2006, and started building my tool inventory back up. God willing, I will complete my shop this next spring. I will post the new pictures as i get the equipment. Sorry about the terrible quality of the pictures. Beleive it or not these were taken with Pen Cam that I bought at Wal-mart at that time. Cost: $9.95. Priceless.

Hope you get your new shop all setup. What’s a LumberJock without a shop? A LumberWannabe.

May your tool purchases all be reasonable.

You have a nice looking shop. It appears to be well organized and you have a wealth of hand tools. I would like to work in there.

Thanks for the post.

This looks like it was a nice shop. What’s the present set up look like? See you haven’t posted in awhile, but have been on line. Hope you’re not wasting all of your time hanging out here on Lumber Jocks. Get to work.
