THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM
This garage shop has space for tools and parking.
SHOP OWNER: Vernon Huffines
LOCATION: Elizabethtown, KY
I have just found WoodCentral and really enjoy reading and looking at as many items as I have time for. I am a retired guy who does woodworking everyday. I just built my third large garage shop. This one has two bays. The left bay measures 11' x 20' and the right bay is 11' x 30', which is where most of the shop tools are located. By moving my freestanding worktable, which is on casters, both vehicles are still able to fit inside. My shop produces all types of boxes, brief cases, knife displays, folding wooden knives that click, and anything no one else wants to do.
In this shot you can see my Rikon lathe, shelving and storage, and the door to the laundry room. Not shown back to the left is a ten-foot space against the wall for vertical storage of sheet goods and rough lumber.
Here are my old Delta/Milwaukee jointer and my Craftsman hybrid tablesaw.
On the right side are my roll-around toolbox, Delta drill press with storage cabinet, roll-around utility cabinet, and my 14-inch Jet bandsaw.
On the left side are my hybrid tablesaw with Biesmeyer fence and a Hitachi M12 router in the right table extension, a sanding station with a 6” x 48” belt/disc sander and an oscillating spindle sander, and in the tall beige and white closet to the right is a Penn State cyclone.
Here is a shot of one work surface with drawers. The doors below provide access to a Shop Vac and air compressor. The top of the bench is home for several other sanders, and some of my clamps on the wall above. Next to that is mobile stand for my portable planer. Paint and finish is stored in a cabinet to the right.
To the left of the previous shot is a 1966 Dewalt Power Shop RAS, and another workbench with drawers and storage below. The pegboard provides storage for many small tools that I use every day. In the foreground is a roll-around worktable.
