Our shops
« on: August 27, 2011, 10:45:04 AM »
We have done threads about our tools, but what about are beloved shops. Perhaps we could share pictures of our shops.

Heres mine. Theres also a small 10 inch craftsman bandsaw that is on the beige bench but you cant see it its all the way up against the wall right now. And my radial arm saw trually is amazing. I know its considered old school now days but I love it. If you look closly youle see were my grandpa previously had a inlet to slid in wood through the wall from the garge.

My shop is also heated by a small heater i keep in there in the winter. Sadly I think my shops more inslated then my bedroom and ime not joking. But it works out well cause I spend more time in my shop then my bedroom.







Ive really downsized since a year ago. I use to have a drillpress, floor sander, small sandblast cabinet, 80 gallon air compresser, a few air tools,  and other power tools but since moving to the new house not all of it came with. I use to have a 3 car garge now I got this small space. But it usally does suite my needs. Theres also a 10x12 shed outback I store stuff in and some cabinets in the patio I store stuff in as well.

I also have some more tools at school for the vocational program ime in. But my collection is still growing!

Great shop, Neil! For a young guy, you are equipped well.
I might find enough time soon to show my shop.

Mmmmm blue squeeze clamps, I love those things, and you can not ever have too many of them :)

Dustin, do they have earthquakes in Ohio? (Ducking)

OK, I should talk, I don't dare show a pic of my shop ; P

Even Snap On gazillion dollar boxes have yet to be designed to defy the laws of physics. Just sayin' :)

Yeah, my buddy was rolling a snapon box across a warehouse once and the wheel got stuck in an expansion groove in the floor, the box flipped onto it's side, and the tools jammed all the drawers shut. No amount of shakinf , wiggling and pounding on it would free the drawers.  He had to pry it open like a sardine can to get the tools out :(
 
Fortunatly it was a company box, they bought him another one, but not before he got a lecture about going too fast....\

Here is a picture of the woodshop we are building in Cando ND. It's all closed in now and insulated.  I'm working on the sheetrock... hope to start moving in shortly after the first of the year.  I'll post some more pics as I get the machines and work benches moved in.  I'll have a cabinet to display  the old stuff that I have collected as well.


Took some interior shots of the shop today. It's up and running, I'm currently building a set of 6 bookcases for our local library. Should have them out of the shop next week.

In the view looking west with the tablesaw in it you can see the bookcases to the left with the door to the finishing room through the door to the left of the red home built roll-around tool cabinet.
