Rants from the chaos woodshop #3: A little glimpse into my shop, especially for Jack.

Hello folks hope the new year is being good to you?

My van spat its clutch out yesterday so after spending all morning looking at yet more work and arguing with an architect I had lost all enthusiasm this afternoon so I took some photos of the shop.

It’s a real state and needs cleaning up organising and shuffling around. I spend more hours in this place than anywhere so it’s shameful the state of it.

The wall with the saws on is the back of the shop and that should be the first photos then moving forwards to the front.

Dreaming of a sawmill, feels like a museum. Thanks for looking Adam.

Kelly ...

Photos of yet another woodworkers addiction to horizontal storage spaces in all forms and sizes.

Jack ...

I would strongly disagree with the term “shameful state” that you used in reference to your shop. I would propose using the term “a shop with character.” Those photos would bring joy to a true woodworkers heart. Thank you for sharing Adam.

Looks like a working area to me, however best get a bench cleared and covered for the clutch disection and repair.

I have possibly got tools with the same name but thats a s far as it goes, they are dwafed by yours, …thats one Big A HCM !!

I would dissect the clutch in the Farm workshop but I’m not doing it the van is too low to the ground to do off axle stands and I don’t have a ramp or a transmission jack and the box is too heavy to lower down with out a transmission jack. So sod it that’s going to the mechanic on the 25th.

As for the shop. Long term the plan is an extension on the length by one more bay. Then a mezzinine in the first bay at the back above the tenoner racked out with storage so I don’t have to use horozontal storage devices.

The overhead router, router table, the bench at the back with the pillar drill and disc sander on will go up there. But we shal see that’s a 10 year plan really.
