Default Shop Pics

I attempted to use the free MS ICE (Image Composite Editor) software to create a panorama shot of the shop but it simply wouldn't create the whole thing so here's what I ended up with in thirds. I guess there are too many points to align. Anyway.....that box of messy wires is the incoming telephone (neat), satellite (not so much), and network (really messy) wires that need some attention. You'd think after 16 years I'd have taken care of it by now. I wired the entire house for phone, network, and satellite while it was being built as well as running underground power and the above to the observatory which a friend of mine and I built. Having the onsite backhoe and a background in HVAC (retired) gave me the skills for wiring the observatory and running the network/phone/satellite. I left the heavy wiring to my electrician (company I worked at and ran the HVAC department where we also did plumbing and electrical. My basement network/phone/satellite wiring is not an example of my work. All the wires are labeled clearly but I'll need to make an extension for the box as the original network switch that fit that box was quickly updated to a gigabit switch and does not fit in the intended space. Go figure.

Seriously? You should see the full size images. But then I do vacuum the shop at the end of each use. Something the little lady expects and the dog will track otherwise then I'm really in trouble. There's an old say "happy wife, happy life".....

Thanks Rick. The shop is finally getting to be a reasonable work area. Each shop project brings things a bit more organization which is badly needed. I was getting tired of having to move things here to get there and shift things around to get the 4x8 sheet on the table saw. And yes, I do use the JessEm Clear Cut TS Stock Guides Caugth them on sale and they are worth it to me. I have since then bought a reconditioned Festool Track Saw and will usually break down those sheets some first but they still are needed. I put a sheet of 2" foam board insulation on my workbench and cut the sheet down using the track saw guide. Clean, splinterless, and ready for assembly. I do most of my angle cuts with that as well now days.

Nice pictures, but it is too clean, gives guys like me a bad name. I like the curved front on the table Saw too . I gotta do that to mine, I keep hooking my apron on the ends of the fence track sticking out.

Nice shop, Steve! I use the Pano feature on my iPhone 6s and standing in one corner it's possible to see the entire shop in a photo. It's probably not as sharp or detailed as yours, though.

Yeah Herb that's a one of a kind saw. You won't likely see another one like that anytime soon. And you guys got a free look at it. One of these days.........

That's a nice sized shop. Mine has been so tightly packed that I couldn't ever really clear all the sawdust. I now have a bit more space available and have picked up most of the stray sawdust fron the half where the cutting tools live. I would have a much easier time keeping it clean if I used closed cabinets instead of open shelves. Putting doors on all my tool stands really helps.

My thought too Stick. I cleaned mine out yesterday then moved the table saw back in its spot and shook a load of saw dust back on the floor.
