Finally found time to post my workshop (garage) pictures. Living in Chicago, I need the space in winter, so most of the tools are on wheels. I actually like this setup rather than stationary, as I can stage these tools for whatever project I’m working on and have plenty of room to maneuver. Lately I’ve just been creating “whirligigs” so the main machines brought out were the bandsaw, belt and oscillating sander. The bench over the table saw serves as an assembly area. This bench serves as an out-feed table and was the subject of a post I illustrated earlier.
It looks pretty quiet and fairly clean right now as woodwork projects are on hold until next spring. The shop is approx. 700 sq. ft. and is heated by a natural gas space furnace mounted to the ceiling. It’s cooled in the summer by a 12,000 BTU window unit.
Thanks for looking.
