All right...I have finally cleaned up and arranged my shop after getting the new lathe and decided to take some pics for posterity (and insurance). I humbly submit to the Pond my little nook of sanity and stress relief.
Here is the entrance, I have a shop in the back of basement with a window that looks out into the back yard. The shop size is roughly 15' x 25'.
As you come in I have all the walls covered with tools,tables and storage with the middle of the floor open for actual work. I have all of my big equipment on mobile bases except for the lathe which has its own permanent home.
Here is the slop sink I installed - no more running to the laundry room for cleanups.
I built this panel glue up jig from a design out of shopsmith - it really works great.
I have a Delta 15" planer and the PM1632 sander
Here is my SCMS...
and bench top DP on top of my extended work bench top.
Here is the Bessey rack that I built from the pics that Jason F. posted a couple weeks ago. It has really cleaned up the clamps mess I previously had.
And here is the back wall of my shop where I keep most of my finishing supplies high on shelving. I am in the shelving business which explains the quantities of shelves I have.
And here is the new lathe...
and my real baby - the 1966 Delta Unisaw (reconditioned w/biesemeyer fence/splitter, etc)
That's it!! I am a prime example of being able to find a small spot and filling it (remember the VW Bug pic with 50 some students in it?)! I have things hanging from every joist and wood storage up high around the perimeter (on shelves, of course) Thanks for looking.
