hello lj’s

here some info about my humble workshop. it’s a small shop. ground measures are 3,5×3,5 meters. it contains a festool table saw,drill press, disc sander, bandsaw and a lathe. this week i bought an old workbench with vices. i don’t have those now and that’s difficult to work without. i just started using handtools.

the woodstorage is about this space in the attic

i’ve been turning for 2 years, mostly segmented. now i’m starting on build boxes and small furniture.

thanks for reading

Rick, you may not have the largest shop I have seen but yours looks like it would be a pretty nice shop in which to work. You have it organized well and have done an excellent job with the space that you have. Moving your wood storage to another is a good way to help maximize the utilization of your space. The window is also a bonus in my book since it will let in quite a bit of natural light. You also have a put together a nice collection of tools. A lathe is high on my wish list as it looks like it would be a lot of fun to use.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Looks like a wonderful space, a place for thoughts, and woodworking.
My shop is small also, but this do not prevent big thoughts, and when they get to big, I can always go out side ;-)

Looks like your window light helps a lot at the lathe. Beautiful shop in a wonderful country. I have been to Enkhuizen often. I hope you don’t have to cross that bridge too often. Enjoy your new, old bench it will server you well I am sure!
