Default The "Shop"

This is my garage so far. I just started setting this up last month so it needs some "tweaking".

Nice, very nice
& CLEAN!
Very nice set up. Everything looks new. Is It?
Tip, alway throw some sawdust & wood scraps (oops: fire wood, sorry Doc) in the pictures, even if it clean. Less ribbing form everybody LOL

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.

LOL Thanks, but look closer there are numerous "scraps" all over. As for sawdust you may notice the one thing I am missing is a dust collection system. I have sawdust...all through the house! It adds character.
Thanks for looking!

Very neat and tidy Deb. As Bj wood say, when can we see some projects coming out of your shop?

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

I have several household things I need to make that mainly involve shelving and drawers. I also have a few pieces of furniture to repair. Currently I am doing some very small projects to get a bit more experience with the router and router table. The bigger projects have to wait till I get my new table saw, hopefully very soon. The one project I want to build from scratch is a "Gentleman's Valet". The plans I have are in my head but I would like to find some actual woodworking plans for one. Something that might give me better ideas for joinery and function.
But I will post my small projects just to keep track of my progression. Currently I am making a plant shelf for the kitchen window. Should be finished tomorrow.

Deb,

What a nice shop you have going. Very well equiped and laid out. I can't find your lathe though, where do you keep it?

Hi Deb. Wood magazine has a dressertop valet in their current issue. Here's a pic of it: http://site.woodstore.net/Images/188...ser_valetl.jpg Not sure if the plans are available on line or not.

Wowl Floor space. I remember when I could walk around easily in my garage... but it is improving. Looks like you have an efficient layout Deb. I have some ideas for your valet project, perhaps we can discuss them Saturday? You are planning on joining us for the Woodworking show? Details are in the NEWS section.

John, that is the back of the bandsaw.

Hi, Deb. Nice shop, but waaay too neat to be functional.
As for plans; why not draw your own? I use a free 2D/3D modeling program called Google SketchUp. It's perfect to design with because it lets you see what the project looks like from all angles as well as being modeled to exact measurements.
