Here are some photos of my shop. It is not very big in size, and it gets a little crowded, when working on projects, but until I get a bigger shop, it will have to do.
These are pictures of some of my tools.
Most of my projects have been things for our house. The project that I am working on now is too big for my workshop, so I have to go to my son’s garage to work on it.

Slim, you have a nice shop in whic to work. It looks to be pretty well organized and the window is a bonus in my book since it helps brighten your shop with natural light. You also have a nice set of tools as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

You crammed a lot in there. Looks functional enough. But I have to ask, and please ignore my ignorance. Is that giant black thing behind the lathe some kind of boiler or fuel tank or something?

Yes that is a wood burning boiler we used years ago , its no longer hooked up . But with things moved around a little it takes the chill out of the basement in the cold seasons.

Good looking shop.

I see some cable TV by the windows and some electrical wire hanging there.
Did you ever have any lumber getting caught in those?

Wood burning boiler… That’s an oldie. Love that old stuff. Great way to make mistakes disappear too!
