Default Almost Finished My Wood Shop

Hello all,
I'm Stan I'm from Ft. Pierce, Florida (on The East Coast) here is a little photo of my shop. I allways said if I ever own my own home I would have a wood shop and make stuff for a hobbie, well 43 years later I have a wood shop, it has 2 rooms a/c, dust collection, tv, fridge..and lots of very old tools that I have collected for about 15 years and stuffed into boxes (when I had a apartment) I really like making signs, but recently have started ordering some easy building plans from woodcraft. Its been a lond road to get to this point, the only thing I really want in the world is a used/new band saw but it will have to wait.
Thanks agian for looking at my shop,
Stan

Nice set up Stan.

Do you have any other power tools?

James,
Lord yes I have a 10" table saw I really like, a restored AMT lathe, about 4 more routers (I have about 8 routers before I settled on these 3) old delta drill press, porter cable biscut maker (never used it yet) 2 roto zips, delta bench grinder, delta sanding station, thats just some of it. My father was a tool and die maker so he never was short of any tools here, I started to sell them off to buy wood making tools I have traded for some very nice stuff. Down below my work bench I have a tool box full of brand new craftman tools shill with the prices and tags over $500.00 ill be trading them off for a band saw soon

Great looking shop. Where were you when I lived in florida? Couldn't find anyone interested in woodworking as a hobby.

Hi Stan, looks like a nice shop to me.

Default Hi Stan

Hi Stan, I'm Fred from Springfield, VA. Your shop looks great. It looks like you've got a place for everything. You're nicely organized. I'm not as far along building my workshop as you, and the clutter drives me crazy. Very nicely done.
