Updated 12/28/14 – This basement shop is about 26’ x 12’. This year added some storage shelving for my old wood planes above mortiser, added tv, moved radio above tool boxes, added 3 blast gates and piping to permanently connect table saw and make connecting other tools easier. The shop was half the current size when we bought this house 6 years ago. 3 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 tools are the 2 antique wood planes. While I inherited them from my dad, their age makes them likely to originate with my grandfather.
I have been fortunate to be able to add a Saw Stop cabinet saw, Delta DP, Excalibur scroll saw, Laguna DC and Nova lathe over the past 3 years. I sold a Craftsman 12” Radial saw that served me wonderfully since the Late 70’s that was used to make projects like bunk beds, desks, bookcases and more with it when the family was younger.
Replacing the red workbench with an unlevel, gapping top that was in the house when we purchased it is my next big project.
Lots of things to improve yet as I’m sure most will say about their shop.
