Shop History

Shop History 2013

From the door into the shop.  As wide angle as I can get.

So this is the state of the shop as of January 2014.    This has come a long way in 10 years.   I always enjoy being in the shop.  Lots of on hand supplies so I can usually do any project that comes along.

Looking forward to more real shop time since I have retired as of 2014.   A few new shop projects are scheduled for 2014.    I want to get these completed ASAP so that I can enjoy be a maker and a craftsman.

Shop history 2007

IMG_0212In 2007 the shop was really becoming a working wood shop.   The Craftsman tablesaw base was completed.  More storage and organization was added.  The router table was a big addition.

The biggest milestone was the starting of my first serious piece of furniture.

Shop history 2005

I do not have a group of pictures for 2005. I started working on this in 2006, I think.     A new base for the table saw.  This was a very significant effort.   It’s purpose was two fold.  One to create a new base for the old Craftsmans saw and second to improve my overall skills at cabinet making.  It worked on both counts.
