Okay, I have revised this with some better pictures that include the new jointer. I have a cheaper 10” Delta table saw which was a gap solution to a need. I have a KHM (taiwan) 14” Band Saw, a GMC compound slide miter saw, a Cummins 7” mini lathe for metal, a Grizzly mini mill. a cheap drill press, a ryobi router table, etc, etc. My next purchase is going to be Home Depot’s Ryobi planer to which I will add a workbench with extension tables then sometime next year I want to get Jet’s 3 hp cabinet saw with router table extension (which includes a Bosch Router).

Lean is a good start! It will grow soon enough.

I think it looks great. Loads of storage space, and the workbench is huge.

Storage over the door, Stoarage on the cealing. Air hose coiled up and not being stepped on.

Good start on the shop.

How do you guys like the termite damage on the back wall? The former owner had tented the house a few years back and I discovered why when I took out a built in cabinet he had in the corner. Fortunately there is no evidence of recent activity. It just looks bad. One more thing on my honey-do list.

oh my… that’s a scary thought!!
Aren’t you glad it’s just on the honey-do list rather than on the “urgent priority list” ?? !!!

Let’s hope those pesky critters did not damage other important parts, like wall studs in the house, joists, ....

I forgot to mention the workbench actually hinges down against the wall leaving only a stub that my machine tools are mounted on so I can get to them easy and to save space when I actually think about parking my car in the garage.

I added some more pics.

It’s only clean because I had to find space for the new toys.

Are you sharing the space with a car. Thats why everything is glued to the wall.

Nice set-up, especially since you share the space with a vehicle.

Hi Rob,

Nice woodshop. I too use my 2-car garage for my shop, but I can no longer park my cars in it.
Have you ever been to Ideal Saw Works in Fresno. One store is located close to you at Herndon and Blackstone behind Denny’s. I do a lot of my shopping there as it is the closest woodworking tool store without having to go to the Sacramento/Bay area or L.A.
I also belong to the local woodturning club and I’m thinking about joining the local fine woodworkers club also. Are you a member of either of these clubs? I live down in Visalia so these clubs are great for me. I learn a lot from the other members.
Well, that’s it. Take care.

-- Sawdust & Shavings, Woodburner
