Coming soon – My shop – as soon as I get rid of the old clothes dryer, find room somewhere else for camping gear, golf clubs (which may have to be sold – I could use a drum sander…hmmm..), etc. Fortunatley, no car in the garage. New to this site, so it will take me some time to drum up the courage to show pics of my shop. Here’s a quick run-down: Craftsman 10” table saw, Grizzly 14” bandsaw, Grizzly 6” jointer, Grizzly drill press (with a mortising attachment that I’m trying to figure out at the moment), Delta 10” miter saw, and a borrowed 12” portable DeWalt thickness planer. Except the table saw, most of this has been idle in the garage for too long. Just getting started, and it’s great to have Lumberjocks as a resource. I have a couple projects in the hopper, so I’ll get some pictures going soon.

Allan, your shop sounds interesting. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of it.

By the way a lot of us share the same problem with “non-shop” equipment being stored in there. I am trying to convince my wife that one-half of the other side of the upper garage would make a good site for the lawn mowers, garden tools, etc since my truck sits outside anyway. But she is adamant that she is going to need this if she ever gets her convertible (personally I think she is having a mid-life crisis). :)

Thanks Scott. I’ve actually gotten used to moving machines around on mobile bases to accomodate for the lack to space. My biggest problem comes when I need space to assemble something. I built a bench & cabinets years ago (thanks to a video by Norm), but it really doesn’t cut it as an assembly table. Now that I’m getting a little more serious about my “hobby”, I’ll have to re-think the whole garage. By the way, my wife graciously gave up her parking spot in the garage a few years ago. Now she’s patiently waiting for me to actually produce something out there… :)
