Two table saws, bandsaw 12.5” thickness planer, 6” jointer, edge sander shaper, router table, 14X40 lathe, 4” dust collection 5 rollaway chests full of stuff, and a collection of old planes clamps and measuring tools. All this accumulated over 43 years of woodworking, in various capacities from rough and finish carpentry, a cabinet-making apprenticeship, antique furniture restorations and my garage sale addiction. My workshop has followed me from Southern NH, Arizona, to Coastal Maine, North Carolina, and now Canada.

Hi Poopiekat,

Your shop sounds interesting but how about posting some pictures. I find visual tours of other shops to be very interesting.

And now a bit of a repurposed showcase, for things I’d rather spare for prosperity:

mostly Stanley 45s and planes still in their original boxes.

That’s plane amazing poopiekat. I can fit my hand planes on one shelf that is 12” by 18”.

Thanks, Bill! Buy smaller planes, you can fit more on the shelf! :-)
I recall reading an article about an old-school journeyman woodworker who laid out his entire woodworking collections on one shelf, 12” deep and six feet long….and went to work making gorgeous furniture with that meager collection.

How’s that for inspiration?

After the Red River floods its banks with spring runoff and ice jams, one of these years, I’ll buy one each of the planes offered by Lee Valley or equivalent. And buy one board at a time from the hardwood lumber dealer. Four C-clamps and four pipe clamps. A bandsaw and I’ll drag the old B&D shop-mate out of the garage.

Minimalism? I get it… now.

Good point, smaller planes. That’s impressive, but I’ll never get my tablesaw, jointer, thickness planer, drills, bandsaw and various other power tools on that shelf. I should be able to make nice stuff even if I can’t get it all on one shelf.

Have your say...
