I built the shop in 1998 and I have been making upgrades ever since.The shop never gets too terribly hot in the summer because the stone building is a little below grade and I can open the garage door for breeze.The wood floor is really nice on the knees and back.And as all woodworkers will say, “you can’t have too much space”so I plan on a future addition someday.
Thanks for looking

Thanks friends! This is my third and best shop since a teenager. Some times I think I have gone too far for a one man shop.Then I think for a sec…nope, too many cool things ahead to make.I am a woodworking tool junky who can’t find a cure.
I am planning on a lathe this summer and have a small stock pile of burls saved up from the woods.I really enjoy all of the creative turnings on this site.
Jeff, the tool below the bench is a hydraulic hauncher.It can notch out beaded face frames for cabinetry. Extremely accurate machine. Also makes a great picture frame miter guillotine when you change the head over.

Steve im drooling! Your shop is every woodworkers dream! I know its my dream to get out of my 20 × 20 garage someday. You have fantastic tools. That work bench is to die for that what i wanted to build but i needed a out feed also. So i designed what im build now. I love your wide belt sander. Among all of them lol
I do have a question. What is that machine in the picture below your workbench.

Steve,

We were anxiously waiting for your shop photos, knowing that it would WOW! us. The space is wonderful with the high ceilings, and very nicely laid out.

It would have been nice if you would have identified all the machines since we flunkies don’t even know what some of them are! Your rail/stile assembly set-up is entirely different than the one I have seen, but it looks like it would work like a charm. Is it all pneumatic?

With the spotless finishing room, of course your finishes are perfect! The whole shop is extremely well organized and looks like it would be a pleasure to work there. Even the exterior is very charming. Did you do your own stone work?

We knew we would be impressed and you haven’t let us down!

It’s not much wonder you turn out such masterpieces of cabinetry and furniture. Fantastic workshop. Some of the automation in your tools I wouldn’t have known existed with my minimal cabinet maker shop visits. Great collection of tools, do you have any more dream tools in the future?
