I started putting this shop together last August. One piece of equipment that is not shown too well is the band saw….a Grizzly GO555.

Maybe you can see some small boxes that I am currently making. I’m making them out of pine (less expensive) until my skills develop. I plan on selling these boxes at a local flea market, the oldest one in Georgia. I certainly won’t make much money but maybe I can recoup the cost of the lumber.

Thanks for posting the shop. It’s always neat to see how individuals solve common problems. I see you have and Incra fence on the tablesaw. I almost went for one of these awhile back but the cost and limitations held me back. How do you like it? I know they make good stuff.

This is a nice looking shop that you have. It looks to be clean and well organized. It also appears as if you get quite a bit of natural light in your shop with all the glass that is in it. You also have a nice set of tools to play with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thanks for the nice comments, Schwieb and Scott. As you know, a lot of work goes into getting a shop put together and although the wife might say that it looks pretty good you know she has no idea of the effort we put in to get it to look that way and it’s nice to hear from other wood-crafters about how well they think your shop looks.

One of the limitations of the Incra fence system with the router table on the left side is that if you screw up or forget to cut a piece of wood after you get set up to use the router it’s a bit of a pain to take the Wonder Fence off and move the carriage so you can use the table saw but really, it doesn’t take that long..just a few minutes. I have two sets of registration bolts on the fence rails…one set for the saw and one set for the router. I just loosen 4 T-screws and slide the carriage to either position and re-tighten the screws. Another plus in having the router as an integral part of the table saw is the space that it saves.

Thanks guys and have a good one…....
