I have retired again and now my also retired wood buddies and I have organized our Wood Buddies shop. Lots of family requests including sisters, brothers, kids, grand kids, nephew & niece. The shop size has grown from 30’ x 24’ to 30’ x 48’. The original 30’ x 24’ has a fully equipped craft studio upstairs for our artistic wood buddy.

We updated with CNC router and laser equipment but still have the traditional small shop equipment. The equipment includes a 1/2 HP powder feeder attached to the 3 HP shaper and a 1/4 HP power feeder used on either the 8” 3 HP spiral head jointer or the 5 HP table saw / router with outfeed table.

Along with that we have a 15” spiral head surfacer, moulder, scroll saw, two drill presses, mortiser, drum/flap sander, oscillating edge sander, 1”x30” belt sander and a 15/30 open sided wide belt sander. In addition we have two bandsaws a 17” 5hp with a Co-matic bandsaw power feeder and a 14” 3/4hp bandsaw. Also a combination 12”disk 6”x48” belt sander, overarm router, 12” compound and 9” miter saws, cordless track saw, 2 wood lathes, oscillating spindle sander, downdraft sanding table, 2 grinders, and power honer.

We also are into veneering and have a 5’ x 10’ veneer bag with table stored overhead.

32mm has been part of our background for decades so we have all the necessary tools including line boring, hinge boring and edgebanding. There are a variety of corded, cordless, compressed air portable power and hand tools throughout the shop.

Since we are some distance from a hardware or a big box store we have cabinets containing a wide variety of fasteners.

The shop has compressed air plus it is heated, air conditioned and 2 overhead filters. Throughout there is video, audio, computer network and WiFi. The second floor is our arts and crafts studio and is heated and air conditioined. For our artist buddy the studio contains 5,000K task lights plus a very large window for natural light.

You appear to have a nice shop. The first picture is a little hard to see since it is so small. And you have some nice tools in there as well. The only observation I would make about it is that there isn’t any sawdust!!!! Your shop is impeccable. My compliments on keeping it so clean.

thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the comment. I changed the picture size. I am use to the avs forum site for my home theater where they restrict how much space you can use.

There is limited sawdust for several reasons from allergies to my cameras do not work well in dust so I vacuum constantly.

Great shop you have there. I got my degree in Industrial Arts from Millersville in Lancaster, PA. Wood Shop teachers are hard to find these days. Thank you for sharing all those years…......I hope you and your shop have many years together…....
