A clean shop is a sign of a sick mind.
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
Not current because some of this is considerably changed and I now have more open space .
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!!!
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.
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
Beware of Grizzlies in the basement. What a shop! Yeesh.
THAT'S messy?! Jeez, I don't think my shed has ever been that clean
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.
Good luck .
looks almost as well equipped as mine.. just cleaner..
and Best of luck to you Adam..
That floor would drive me INSANE!!!!!
OMG. You could drop something on that floor ....... and FIND it again!
