  1. Design & Plans
    Hi Everyone, Would appreciate your advice on my situation. My home doesn't have a basement or garage but it does have a large backyard with two sheds. One shed is about 14x8 with an 8ft ceiling, the other is slightly smaller. The larger shed is most likely not large enough for any serious...

    My "Workspace" is an old 1930/40 outbuilding that i believe was used as a carriage house, however, they had the space 14x18 paved with a drain angle, looks like a 5-10 degree from the front all the way to the back, I have a Delta contractor saw and I want to build a workbench/extension table...

    I’m starting to get really frustrated with how out of control my shop is. I know I’m not the first to experience this, but in about a year I’ll be retiring and really want to enjoy my time out there. This is a repurposed 20×20 garage. There is no room outside for sheds, external dust...

    Hi! I'm curious what people's thoughts are on organization systems they've used for their shop. Some general questions I have: Do you have a successful organization system/what makes it good? Do you lose things often? Do multiple people use your space? Do you have general or specific...

    I have an old Delta Table Saw Series 2000 with Biesemeyer Fence and can't find a mobile base for it. My shop is in the garage and I need to be able to move this thing into and out of position when I'm working. I've spoken to Delta directly and have been told that the mobile base for this saw has...
  7. Shop Safety
    When I first started woodworking in high school, we were always taught the safety basics (wear eye/ear protection, don't have loose jewelry, hair, or clothing, etc.). So in my shop at home, I've kept to most of those. I always wear my shop apron and eye/ear protection, but I've also found that I...

    Does anybody here run a one man shop? If so what types of pieces do you make? I have a decent setup: table saw, jointer, sanders, jigs, and clamps. Would like to run a one man shop on a part time basis only, just wondering if handmade woodwork is a lost art. Thanks- Andrew

    I cleaned and did my annual leaf blower/compressed air with fans pointing outside dusting. Said goodbye to some scraps in the fire pit that I'm sure I'll need tomorrow and tried to organize my wood storage. What did you do in the shop today?

    I'm helping my wife clear out a shop on a property she has listed. Found this old saw. Couldn't find any markings on it. Any idea what it is and if its of any value? I'd hate to throw away an unique saw someone might want to save.

    So I have gone through hours of looking closely at the "Show us your shop" pages. Thank you to everyone that posted. Tons of great ideas. My 24x24 shop is a mess filled to the brim, with 20ft basscat and stacks of tools, junk, fishing gear etc. I am a true DIY'er, planning for wood working...
  12. Design & Plans
    Hi Everyone, I'm starting one of my first bigger projects, in order to give myself a decent work space. Currently my investment is low, and I don't have a ton of tools or space, so I wanted to build a shop table that operates much like a large TV table. The legs are hinged at the top and fold...

    I am new to the forum and wanted to start off by asking a basic question on building types: What are the pros and cons for you folks that have one and are there some companies that you recomend and trust for quality, price and set up ease? Thanks, Woody

  15. General Woodworking Discussion
    I am presently using my large garage as a shop in warm months and a small 12' X 12' heated shop for small projects in the winter. Since I recently retired, I need a dedicated woodworking shop. I have become intrigued with the idea of building with steel cargo/shipping containers. Here is the...
  16. Dust Collection
    Does anyone own, or use an Oneida dust collection system? I am a cabinet maker, just starting out, and want to equip my shop with the best tools possible. I am looking for feedback on Oneida? There was nothing I could find as far as reviews online. Need some input. There dust collection systems...

    Hi everyone! I'm starting to get into woodworking, and I have a small shop built with just the basic power tools, like a jig saw, circular saw, drill, and some power sanders, as well as a pancake air compressor and a brad nailer. After building a few simple (really simple) projects, I realize...

    Just a fun poll for you guys. If you could chose to build your dream shop.. How big would it be? Would you have your compressor and dust collector in a separate room from the rest of the shop? How about that bathroom? A lounge for your TV, computer, and maybe your wood magazines? Here's my...

    If you guys have seen some of my other posts you'll know I am getting back into woodworking. Put in my order with Grizzly today for my new G0715P TS, jointer, spindle sander, mortiser, and some other stuff, mobile base, zero clearance insert, dewalt dado blade set, etc. The only problem is the...

    I just looked at some shop photos and I liked Daves trailer shop. I would like to do something like that and I was wandering if anyone have some more ideas, photos or cool tips. If you can post them here that’ll be great help. :thumbsup: I do most of my work on jobsites now and unloading and...
