Default Bernie's Workshop

Well I must say that there are couple of nice looking shops posted so far. Guess I will post some pictures of mine. Now keep in mind it is not as clean as some but I have been doing a lot of turning lately and don't clean it as often as I should. Why clean that just cuts into my turning time. Anyway here it is. It is a 12 X 20 shop. My bench top table saw, planer, jointer and router table are all covered under the benches. I do pull them out occasionally to do some flat work but mostly I turn as can be seen with two lathes. The first picture is of a flip bench I made with the belt/disc sander on one side. Flip it and the sliding compound mitre saw is on the other side. I am hoping to make one more with the table saw on one side. Flip it and the router table is on the other side.

sawdust and shavings....I love it!! No mistaking yours for anything other than a turners shop.... Like how you used the base of the big lathe as cabinet space..Do the eyebolts for the belt sander/chopsaw just pull out?

Thanks Bill. The eye bolts loosen and then turn to the front and rear so the table top can turn. The eye of the bolt is pinned in place. It works slick and hoping to make another one maybe two for sure. It is on wheels so I can wheel it around to where I need it.

Yep sawdust and shaving. That's my shop. It might get a good cleaning once every 3 or 4 yrs. LOL

That's my kind of shop Bernie, obvious signs that it's well used, not just a show piece.

Thanks Harry. Good to hear from you. I posted a new piece in the Woodturning forum and guess nobody is turning but me much anymore. Anyway still having fun and selling a few things. Keeps me busy and yes just before the pictures I took out about 43 shovels full of chips. Almost filled three 55 gallon barrels.

I notices the dueling lathes there, Bernie.. The Jet and the Nova.. Does that make you a two-fisted turner or ?? <g>

Nice setup!!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Great looking shop, now I know where all that great turning is done.
