    TKOjams, I like your "shop"! Well equipped!
    That's the Epiphone poster on the wall, right? ;) Got this, too.

    Alright that's basically what I was planning. When you google them everyone talks about laminating mutliple pieces of ply and support legs too keep them from sagging. I had a hunch they were all over engineering :yesway:

    A couple more of my shop.

    I've been focusing on improving my work environment. Added a french cleat modular storage system. I'm waiting on parts for my current build, so there's been a lot of downtime. Downtime becomes cleaning time. Cleaning time spurs new ideas of where to store shit.

    All shitty 4x12 cabs become workspace and storage. Take that Madison!!! :rofl:

    I work partly in the garage and partly in the patio, on this part of the garage I still keep my car, so the tools have bases with wheels

    It's small and cramped, but I'm quite fond of it. Pics are from a few months ago, when it was less cramped and much cleaner :)

    Over the past year and a half I've gone from this:

    I'm still trying to improve it. In progress is another workbench (maple this time), and I think that combo planer/jointer table will go. It didn't turn out to be quite as functional as I had envisioned, and it takes up a lot of space.

    Looks like the inside of a tobacco strip room.

    Pulaifax....that's the bandsaw and sander I've got my eye on. Gotta sell some gear before I can get them tho.

    jonny...I dig how you made that small contractor table saw into so much more. I'm tempted to do the same with my Delta.

    BWG...pro shop.

    Sorry , it has never been used for that purpose .
    It is a 26'x50' area of my building that has been finished out .
    Back when I was a kid , there was a very large barrel in this part that was used for making hard cider .

    Here are some shots of my shop (or as my dad is quick to point out, I just use it)

    Sorry it's messy, it's usually cleaner

    Going to check out a wood shop that has space to rent tomorrow. Hopefully they're set up for what I need, I'd really love to take a go at this again. I've learned a lot over the last 7 years.
