Seems like tough language for someone who hasn't had their home ready to be taken from under their feet. If the landlord says no, you'll have to abide or find a new place to live. They probably have a clause in their contract about running businesses out of the place.

Hi Leo, I think that C-Dog's issue is shop space, not residential space.

But I could be wrong, and if so, I stand corrected.

It's not much right now, but here goes nuthin.


My fugly work bench that is temporarily holding too much extra stuff. I made this from pine 2x4 studs and 1/2" B/C plywood. The major tools from top left to bottom right are...

Ace Hardware 6" bench grinder, Black & Dekcer Firestorm FS100L compound miter saw with laser, unknown MFG 6" bench vise, Craftsman 3/8" VSR corded drill, Ryobi fixed base router on Wolfcraft router table, Skill Circular Saw, Skil Jigsaw, Skil random orbital sander, Black & Decker Firestorm plunge router, and of course my old Makita 1/4 sheet palm sander.Oh and hanging from the ceiling above that is a Pelican Excursion 146 DLX for those slow fishing trips on the Bayou...


Router table ready to plug in.


Ryobi table saw with folding stand. This is my first table saw. I looked around and in my price range, from what I have been able to find out, this is the best saw I could buy...

Table saw set up.


Black & Decker Firestorm Miter Saw stand.


There it is set up.


Tool chest. Mechanics tools mostly. I work on cars and trucks too!

Hang up shop vac. Not the biggest thing. But it does what I need it to.

A word about the images I post here. I OWN THEM. If you would like to use them please PM me. I don't want to get another email from friends telling me about somebody using my images on Craigslist again!

Nice to retire to such neat and to-the-point workshop.

BTW is that a TV near the back corner???

Tonight brought a couple of changes to my home shop. As will tomorrow night.

#1. The chain hung single 4 foot flourescent shop light was replaced with 2 direct to sheet rock mounted units. The $8.00 cheapos from Home Depot are all I needed to get the job done. I am adding two more tomorrow for a total of 8 lights.
#2. Just in case the table for my table saw doesn't extend fully enough to support longer material, I fabbed up a single sawhorse from 2x4s and those tin sawhorse hinge kits. The second one is waiting to be done for tomorrow night.

The lighting is being temporarily fed by a ceiling mounted outlet. The back two will soon be powered by their own outlet / circuit as I have an electrician friend coming in to run some circuits into the garage for me. There will be two circuits feeding 4 outlet boxes, 2 on the north wall, 1 on the south wall, and 1 on the west wall between the garage doors and above the Shop Vac. These will all be high mounted, above 3 feet, to make it easier for me to unplug, and plug in...

Here's mine - don't laugh!

I'm gonna be spreading some polyurathane in a couple days so I cleaned the shop today. Thought I'd take some photos. I know you guys won't respect me with a clean shop but you likely won't respect me anyway if I tell you why my screen name is Geoguy - I'm not really a woodworker, I'm a geologist - sorry . I only make sawdust on the weekends.

But I'm really pleased with my shop. I built it myself - really (I framed houses in college many years ago). It's 24X28 with an 11X12 room cut into one corner (it houses lawn mowers, shovels, etc. and the noisy dust collector). The room also provides extra support for the attic floor - I store and dry wood in the attic (notice the loft door in the front gable allows access to slide boards up into the attic). Complete with almost all the tools I could need including the ever important beer fridge, although a small one. I would welcome any comments or suggestions for improvement.

Geoguy, and I thought it was because you were a proud Geo Metro owner! Thanks for straightening me out there! Okay seriously though..

That shop looks great. You did a nice job with it. Looks like you have a preference for Grizzly from all that green I see there... Nice stuff for sure.

I particularly like that cabinet / miter saw table you have going on there. That is kind of similar to what I want to do with my planer. I've got mine sketched up and am ready to build..

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

Thanks, guys. The table saw extension is pretty stable - made out of 2X4s with 3/4 plywood top, with reinforced corners. It doesn't fold up (fortunately I have plenty of room) but I did put wheels on the legs so it can move around with the saw, if needed. And Russ, I'll get a couple more close-up photos tonight, if you like.

You're a funny guy, dbhost! I do like the Grizzly tools, also, it's only a 2 and a half hour drive to the Grizzly outlet in Springfield. And thanks, I'm really pleased with the cabinet/miter saw table. The backstop ledger on the cabinet top works really well so I can just toss a board up there and it's already perpendicular to the saw. By the way, that's a nice sturdy bench you have in your shop. Looks like a place where real work is conducted. Good luck with that planar cabinet. Post some pics when you get it finished.

Here you go. Notice the high-tech leveling system and the integrated cut-off sled mounting bracket. Also, the innovative miter gauge containment system.
