Default A 2015 tour of my shed

The main differences since the last tour are the replacement of the 6" high speed grinder with an 8" on with light, the addition of a 2hp half speed grinder with white wheels, a new mini lathe which has 1" of extra centre height with electronic speed control, digital readout and a bed extension. It is in a corner of the shed dedicated to turning. My trusted 10" radial arm saw that had been with me since about 1976 was sold and replaced with a Bosch 12" glide saw. I do miss the radial arm saw but there was no room for both and I needed the extra depth of cut. The full tour is in the pdf.

Thanks for the tour, Harry. Is your shop really that clean all the time?

Looks like in addition to your fine tutoring on subjects related to routers and woodworking, you could give some pretty good lessons on organization. Very nice shop.

Harry it seems like your Shop/Shed has twice as many walls and corners than mine! Wonderful job. At the end of the PDF you wrote...

"A note for newcomers to woodworking.

The contents of a shed like this cannot be set-up in five minutes, it
takes years for most of us to achieve it, during which time constant
upgrades take place. It's surprising what can be achieved with the
most basic of tools."

Last week I spent close to 12 hours dedicated to cleaning and organizing my shop and wood shed. When I was done it was a lot cleaner... I can find things and know where they are but as for everything being in the right place for space and convenience I failed miserably. Hopefully one year the light will go on and I will be able to figure it out. For now I'll continue the struggle!!!

Thanks for the tour, Harry. My wife and I have been planning a spring cleaning for our storage shed. Like you said, there is going to be some changes to make storage better and more accessible. Hopefully, in the end, some of the stuff in our one car garage (my workshop) will be relocated to the shed giving me a little more room to work.

I would be happy with just a couple more feet of useable room to work.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

The saw itself is great but the dust collection could be better.

Oliver, I spent three days on and off getting it to that standard. I'm now loath to start a new project for a while because even with all the dust collection it will soon get back to what it was like before the major cleanup. So I have some metal projects to complete which will keep it clean a little longer.
