I have three shops – the garage, the basement, and outside! :-)

Here are some pictures of the garage shop. I built the workbench/miter saw cut off station a couple summers ago With this station I can quickly reproduce pieces.

It looks like a nice workable set-up. I’m sure it will turn out lots of great projects.

I use the outdoors many times also. Some of my tools don’t have any dust collection. so outside is the best.

My first shop was just outside the shed. Had to run a cord to use the tablesaw, but I could do my sanding on the back porch, great in oct, horrible in Jan (though thats where the work was being done those first few months after moving in around Halloween.

My basement shop is a step up in some respects, though i’d love a garage with the indoor/outdoor option, especially with the really dusty projects!

Thanks John, I like the bench; it has paid me back many times over – it makes projects so much easier. I can knock out parts really quickly, and they are exact duplicates, all the same.

I would like to create a table saw station that is its peer, but that will have to wait until I get a cast iron 3 hp 220 volt table saw.

Yes Scott, dust is tough. We have a “forced hot air” heating system, so I am not keen on creating a lot of dust in the basement that might spread throughout the house. Unfortunately, that kind of limits me to spending time in the garage when the weather is 40 degrees or better. My favorite time is when the weather is dry, the temps are in the upper 60s lower 70s, the sun is out, there are no bugs…which in New England is about six days a year.

Oh I hear you.

Yeah, we always look forward to spring, but not may cuz of the mayflies (which don’t even live long enough to have evolved a digestive system) then the skeeters, then it’s finally cool enough to go outside… perhaps that’s why Fall is my favorite time of the year? One reason at least… plus foliage, nice crisp days, still warm enough and all that.

Hi John,

You have a nice shop and a nice set of tools as well. I really like your collection of hand tools.

Thanks for the shop tour.
