Edit: These pictures are from around 2008, maybe earlier. I’ll try to get some new pictures.

[note: a lot has changed since these pics]

A bit cramped but dry and cozy. No heat but it does have air conditioning! In the winter I run a milk house heater which just manages to take the chill off.

Since this picture I’ve ripped out the middle wall and reoriented my tablesaw. Originally the place was divided into four rooms and it took me an entire weekend to tear out a single wall because of all the ring shank nails, wish I’d had a Sawzall back then but it was just me and a crowbar.

Nice shop though.
Slowly as time goes by, a project completed after another, you’ll get inspired to make over or just reorganize! Thanks for sharing & enjoy woodworking the safe way.

It looks like you could do your share of wooding there. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

Hi Rick, just looking at your shop set up. I know you said you were changing things awhile back.
I have to comment on the drill press. It is a spittin immage of mine. I have a Rockford. Bought it back in 1980 new for $65.00.

It’s set up a lot different now. Guess I should update my pics. I’ve seen a number of drill presses just like mine with a variety of brand names on them but I believe Orbit was the actual manufacturer. Jet bought from Orbit and sold them in the states, later rebranding them. I believe Jet still sells some parts for them.
