Yep, it’s a fairly standard hobbyist’s basement workshop. I have the use of about half the basement which is plenty of room for most of my projects, though who doesn’t long for a 30’x60’ high ceiling building with full climate control, enough circuits and lots of natural light? Well, maybe one day…

As it is, I have enough stationary tools to be dangerous and all the clutter of multiple projects going on at once. the pictures show my home build panel saw, my excessively organized hardware unit, my first stab at a quick and dirty work bench, storage and a joiner in the adjacent area, my planer rolling stand and finally my shop companion Izzy the Husky who is completely unfazzed by shop noises (including her cussing owner).

All the stationary tools are on wheels of one flavor or another. I pull out what I need, use it and stow it. It’s the only way I can make the long and narrow nature of the space work. The workbench sits under a large window whose curtain I open when I am down there (and it’s daytime). evening lighting is courtesy of two overhead Halogen ceiling fixtures and two tracks of floods nearer the left and right walls that can be aimed around as needed. I hate flourescent lighting.

Also, there is easy at grade access to the backyard for larger materials coming into the shop. Rough wood is stored in a shed just outside.

It doesn’t feel as crowed as the pictures make it look…

Nice shop. Looks like a happy dog. You will have to have MsDebbie by for an inspection.

I just (last night) completed a long anticipated upgrade: A new Grizzly 2HP cabinet saw. Soon the saw dust will be flying again.

Nice looking shop Wayne.

Did that panel saw hardware come as a kit, or did you build it all from scratch?

The panel saw was home built using plans from ShopNotes Issue #4.

Wayne: Nice shop. When you get in a traveling mood. Drive east on Hwy 50/404 toward Rehobath Beach.

Come and visit.

Hi Wayne,

I am sorry about taking so long to get around to reviewing your shop post. I really like your panel saw. This is one tool that every woodworker who deals in sheet goods would love to have. All I can say is that I take full advantage of Lowe’s and Home Depot’s panel saws to cut sheet goods. I have done it on my table saw but it is a pain. I really like your hardware storage as well. It looks to me as if you have it organized well and enough room to do the job.

Thanks for sharing.
