My shop in Kansas
Jan 7th, 2015 at 2:58pm
 
The shop matches the house. Outside view. Will put up views on the inside part at a later date.  Building is 28x40. The back half is where I do my woodwork. There is double doors between the two halves. All Doors and windows are insulated. There is an attic. I use a pull down door to access that. I have some 2' Ash and 2" Red elm stored on one side. Wall plugs ever where on sides and in the shop part which also has 220v.

I kinda had to laugh when you said the doors and windows are all insulated. Up here in the frozen tundra of north Dakota........insulation is a given. Sometimes I wish I could insulate the insulation!!!
It looks like you will have ample room in that shop. Enjoy.

I said I might post some pictures on my half that I use. Here they are. After you see them I will try to answer any questions you may have. Don't take me to the cleaners on the clutter. After all it's a 25 year accumulation of machines, shavings & dust. The Certainteed Vinyl siding makes it look new on the outside.

I do use that Delta Unisaw I laying out a bunch of tools that I don't use too much for hollow turning and was wondering to keep or sell. I have  more saws One is an Elu Chop saw and will convert to a table saw. I also have a model saw setting on one of the benches. There is a smaller sander and disc sander to compiment it. Another saw is the radial arm saw, that's a Rockwell 9".
I have a total of 8 lathes plus the Shopsmith I can drill, turn, bandsaw,belt sand, disc sand on that, I had that one since 1980.
List of the lathes - 2 Vicmarks, Robust, Powermatic, Nova DVR, Avon, and Record.
I used everything I had when I was doing the Renaissance Festivals. Lots of production work.
I have this bad habit of when I set out to do something I go overboard. Same with all the tools. The shows and extra income paid for it all. No family money. I told the kids when I pass away all my toys are your problem not mine.

Nice shop George. Lots packed in there!  So you can actually find wood to turn in Central Ks?   Growing up we lived in Lyons, Little River & Great Bend.  Still have family in all three.

You can see the Shopsmith band saw sticking above the mess. I need to build some cabinet space underneath two of those lathes. Much of my stuff is covered up and I just clear from one spot to the next.

You know I have had four lathes but I had to sell them each time I upgraded. It sure would be fun to have them all. Happy turning
