lovely how do you find the mitre saw stand ? I was thinking of getting one, then I bought two large roller tables adjustable to go either side of the saw i.e. one either side. I figured this would be good for me but I also need to go sometimes to do some little jobs on my sons houses and this would be more practical for this kind of endeavour kindest regards and remember have fun in your well appointed wood shop Alistair

Very nice. Looks like it is an independent building from the house?

Scotsman: It’s a great stand. it will expand out at each end about 30”. Made by Ryobi and is easy to fold up. Thanks for the encouragement

Christopher: You are right. My daughter has horse stables and I have a shop in the end of the pole barn where we keep the tractor. Thanks.

Looks great. I have the same Table Saw. Does that one give you any trouble with cutting true? What is the size of your shop?

Matt: Thanks. No trouble with cutting true so far. My closed shop is 12×20” but the center bay of the barn is 12×24 which I also use. Having the saws on wheels makes it easy for longer lumber. I just bought a 14” Ridgid bandsaw (not pictured). Right away I built a base with locking caster so I can move it around.

Dudley, you have a nice shop in which to work. It looks to be well organized and you have some nice tools to play with as well. I like the headroom that you have in there and it looks like you have easy access to overhead storage if you need it. Nice job on putting a rug in there as well. That is much easier to work on as opposed to concrete.
