    Things are slow around here so I decided to go out to the shop and take some pics for everyone to see.

    # 1 and 2 are the shop taken from back door of the house

    # 3 is my favorite tool, a 5x10 cnc router.

    The first machine in this bunch makes all the parts for 5 piece doors, basically a shaper with a stacked cutter a sliding table with a pneumatic clamp.
    The next is a up-cut chop saw with a programable tiger stop and lable printer.
    Third is a table saw with a power feeder sitting next to it.

    Mostly cabinets, though I have been known to put out a piece or two of furniture.

    Dave, Super nice shop layout, but I got a question, how come you can see so much concrete, there ain't near enough stuff stacked around.

    The first pictures, ya'll got white looking dirt, what's that?

    What part of MN you in, my GF was born and raised in Hibbing.

    You have a shop. I wish I had a shop. Any kind of shop. A place just to go to and act like I know how to do something in a 'shop'. I know nothing of wood working. I know nothing in engines. Big or small. No nothing about anything. I just want a shop so I can go to my 'shop' and act like I can do something. Whether its right or wrong. I just want to go to my 'shop'. Heck I'll drill some holes in that there piece of wood and sand it just to do something in my shop. Maybe even nail/glue/screw another piece to it just to say I made something.
    I can take things apart and TRY to put them back together. I can build boxes for my style of Washers (game). Does that count for wanting a 'shop'?
    I would love to have a 'shop' so I can charge up batteries for the tools that I have but hardly use. I want a wood burning stove in there too. Fridge for my beverages. A place for all my tools that I want.
    I just would love to have an out building/garage/shop. Something. Instead I'm stuck here in my apartment. Oh hum (sad eyes/feeling sorry for myself) maybe some day.
    By the way. Thats a nice shop. :big_smile:

    David. thanks for sharing your pics of your profession and the shop. As a "shop teacher" and one that has worked in various metal shops over the years, and seen various other "shops" You've got it together man.... A little snow outside looks nice... just as long as the "melt and ice" does not become a problem.....


    Thanks again.... Bayrunner Ray

    Concrete gives you room to move, the white stuff is what keeps me from being on the water. I'm near the town of Stacy, about 40 miles north of the twin cities.

    Good gravy Dave, you got some serious bucks tied up there. That is a dream shop in my book. It sure is nice to have everything you need when building things like you do and I can't see anything you are lacking. Man what a set up!
