These are some photos depicting the typical condition of my woodshop. I can have as many as 30 projects underway at a time so the shop can get pretty messy real quick. I try to keep it fairly clean and organized for safety reason but I still allow to get out of control occassionally!!

Hi Steve,
My table saw combination is a MiniMax CU 300. I traded in all my Powermatic Machines for this one for a smaller footprint in the shop. Except for the space saved, I regret changing over. I don’t like the right tilting arbor. If I have a problem with the machine (and I have on 2 occassions), I have to have a tech rep come all the way up to Washington State from Houston, Tx to work on it. I couldn’t even find a local machine shop who could replace the drive chain for the infeed rollers on the thickness planer. I liked my old Powermatic 66. All my jigs were made for that machine.

Have a great day!!

Thanks for the pictures of your shop. but now I am drooling over your shop and your wood!! Looks like you could have 30 projects going in there. I can see why you would need a separate wood building to keep this space functioning. Find a way to bribe your wife!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

What do the women in the strip shop look like? Sorry that was my sailor mind typing there. Nice setup of buildings and nice collection of tools.

Ron, your shop is real nice. Since you have as many as 30 projects going on at once I assume that you are also a juggler as well as a woodworker. Your shop looks like it would be a pleasure to work in and doesn’t look that messy to me. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Such a range of equipment. Is this a commercial venture? How many people use your shop anyhow?

Wow Ron, 30 projects! I hope you keep a notebook! If I had that many projects in my head at once I think I would come to a complete standstill, LOL :-) Great shop!!
