Default Work in progress shop

I'm going to try and attach some pictures of my work shop. The shop amounts to a 10x14 shed in a small back yard. Still need to get better electric run to it, going to run a 220 volt line out and install circuit breaker in shop.
Have cheap Delta 10" table saw with home made zero clearance insert, Delta 10" compound miter saw, 9" Delta Band Saw I picked up for $50.00, picked up the jig saw on bench beside drill press in a pawn shop. My work bench is built from Kreg jig plans and I use the drawers under the miter saw to store drills and bit, kreg jig, other drawers are used for router and bit, and electric saws. Still need to do a lot of work so I can work year around. Picnic table on top of table saw is part of a squirrel feeder but when someone says you should build me a picnic table I hand them one of these. I also have some pictures of a john boat that I built in the back yard I'll upload when I figure out where.

G'Day Dan,
Well done you got the photos attached and a picture is worth a 1000 words.
You surely have that shed packed, looks like you need a new BIGGER one...LOL.
Love the little "picnic bench", you've done a fine job on it.
Are you going to paint it or clear finish?
Who's it for?
Cheers, crowie....

Dan11,

You have a lot in the shed, only person I know with more and with less room to move around is me, lol

Advice on the electrical, make sure you have a electrican look at or help you do the 220v, be sure to ground the sub-panel and shed at the shed, use the right size wire and conduit or overhead wires,

I have to get some pictures of my shed out, I think the only ones I have are when I was rebuilding my bike and before I dug out my woodworking tools, lol

Keep up the good work and planning,

GRLevel3 AKA Poppa Rob

Crowie,
I really need to get rid of a bunch of stuff, I've got a 7" or 8" table saw in a crate in the corner that my Father purchased from Montgomery Ward in about 1940. When my Father passed away my older Brother took the saw and completely rebuilt it, just need to put it on a stand. the little picnic table goes to a squirrel feeder this was the first one built it is made of pine to see if I could scale it down. The rest are made from ceder and redwood.

GRLevel3,
No problem with the electric, We purchased are small house about 20 years ago for just about nothing and I've replumbed and rewired the whole house to the building inspectors approval. Only thing standing in the way is money, fixed incomes are rough. You think this shed is full you should have seen the old one that I kept my stuff in when I built the 12 foot wooding john boat in the back yard, still looking for the pictures so I can post them.

Keep us posted with your new shop, Dan. I had seen your boats and especially liked the Jon boat. Good luck!
