Default Woorkshop & Lathe

Hello to all,

Well I said I would post pictures of my shop when I joined the Forum and I've been so busy that I haven't gotten around to clean the mess before photo's but here goes. I took these Friday night because Saturday morning I took a wood turning course in Montreal with Eddy Noel who has written many articles and even appeared on TV. The course lasted all day and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will now be able to practice on my old Rockwell Beaver lathe that I bought apx. 3 years ago.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Cheers,

Dan

What's with Canada, and all us 'Dans' ?!
Why do we all use our workshops for storage?
So many questions; so little space...

Dan, great workshop.

But, the walls on the ramp are empty....What's going on.......VBG.

Nice workshop Dan, as a safety note I do hope that those carving chisels in the rack are only up that way for the pic as it looks a tad dodgy for the wrist when reaching for the handle of any of the turning chisels.

If you haven't got the tools you can't do the work, if you don't have the work you don't need the tools.

Thanks for the comments guys. Dan I use the shop for storage only because I can't find anyone to move most of this stuff upstairs for I have a bad foot and I can get myself up & down the stairs but I can't really carry much. I guess employment insurance and welfare benefits make people too independent. As for the walls on each side of the ramp, do you guys not see the 36ft ladder and the CANADIAN FLAG. LOL, I can't put more stuff because I park both vehicles in the garage in winter and the ramp is for my pick up truck and the mirrors need clearance. Next projects on my list are; new workbench, router table, crosscut sled and that should take care of most of my free time this winter. Must leave some time to earn my living selling steel.
Cheers,
Dan

Default Workshop/Storage

Workshop..Storage..and stuff.
Seems like we all keep accumulating "stuff". And with the seasons being what they are here, the only place to keep stuff is inside. And where does it go except into the available space..."The workshop". Temporarily, of course. Of course. I occasionally envy those with moderate temps all year, but I don't think I'd trade winter for too long without missing it. Nothing like trying to work outside when you can barely bend your fingers to pick up tools.
Gotta get busy, moving my stuff, I've got more stuff to bring in. Just temporarily, of course.

Nice workshop Dan, but I would really like to see the 57 Chevy, even if it is now gone.
