This is my garage workshop. It is a plenty big. I measured 22’x20’. The shelves on the entire back wall limit my design abilities. But, I have the shelves full of stuff. They have to stay. Little by little, I have put out the lawn equipment and reduced the number of bicycles (down to 6 now).

I never realized how cluttered it all looks. I have been woodworking since spring 2012. I am still learning and developing what I need to get the job done. At this point, I am installing 2 new dedicated circuits: one 120v and one 240v. I have had some power limitation issues. I hope to convert my PM64b to 230v and use less amps.

From the beginning, I built the pegboard, a router table, then the workbench. People kept asking what I was going to build. My answer was I am building a workshop, and maybe later I can make a table or something.

Most of my first 9 months work was done on Franklin Avenue at my Uncle’s place. He has a table saw and mitre saw. Since I got my own TS, I have not worked at his place. Great thanks to him for inspiring me to start, and for letting me work at his place.

Paul, you have a nice shop. However, some people swear that wood shops shrink a little bit everyday. Maybe you’ll be lucky and that won’t happen to you. Anyways welcome to Lumberjocks.
