Basement shop. Was half the size when we bought this house 5 years ago. 2 years ago After daughter moved out and I got my act together I tore down the wall between her old bedroom and the small shop, pulled up the ugly shag carpet and spread my wings. Lots of wheels so I can move tools to workable positions. Decided on the Tool bases from Craftsman before I found all the great woodworking sites and shop ideas on the internet. But they do give me lots of storage space.
The oldest tool is the 56 ‘Greenie’ Shopsmith I inherited from my dad. Replaced the headstock with a Power Pro because the old one was in very bad shape from sitting unused in a unheated chick coupe for many years. Spent many hours removing rust from the top rails.
However the real star is the Craftsman 12” Radial saw that has served me wonderfully since the Late 70’s. I did a major tune up on it last year replacing a tired bed and realigning. The dust shroud was hot glued up from the original shipping box. I’ve made many projects like bunk beds, desks, bookcases and more with it.
Lots of things to improve yet as I’m sure most will say about their shop.
