At the end of the day today I decided to do some light cleaning in the shop before heading home and took some pics of our fun little wood shop. Sort of cramped, will be great when our 40*80 is finished.

Thanks Shane, we love our band saw. Have resawn about 500 bf of mesquite this past winter and today I cut about 30 decorative cabinet base feet/trim in a flash.

The last time I posted shop pics we were in a small 18*18 garage and so we have grown some, but now have pretty much run out of room where we are at.

Very nice place. I could spend some time in a place like that for sure!

One thing I am thinking. I know many have said the ts is the center of the shop, or the main piece, we have 3 cabinet saws but only 2 are in working condition, one is awaiting restoration. But I have come to realize that our air compressor gets used the most of any machine in our shop. Our speedaire is one of my favorite machines based on everything it does for us.

Looks like you have the capacity to make a lot of saw dust;-))

Thats sure is one nice shop.. You really have some nice tools..Speedaire makes great compressors. I’m thinking of upgrading to one. The 20 gallon is getting a little old. Grainger sells them. Hows the new shop coming along?
Thanks for sharing with all of us.

Thanks, Michael Frey

I’d kill to have a “fun little shop” like that! I work out of a car port and have to pit everything back up when I get done. It gets a little old…

Thanks for the nice comments. As for our new shop update, we poured the foundation about 3 weeks ago. We have the verticle columns in place. I’m waiting for a recent job to pay in full so we can install C purlins and maybe start skinning the structure. Just have to wait and see how the finances work out.

Hey Joey,

So you are in Austin. Not far from us. The woodmaster has been great to have. We use it to plane and also cut moldings, mainly crown molding for our kitchens. The change over from one to the other is not bad. I have wanted to set it up for gang ripping.

When we move to the new shop we will have some extra space and so I will look to add a planer or molder so that I can leave machines set to do one task. Large planers / molding machines can be had easily at auctions or on CL. Just a couple weeks ago I found a 12” woodmaster on CL for 400 but timing was just not in my favor. Would have loved to buy it though.
