The BT3100 in all its cleanness! You can see attached the new Shark Guard version 10.4, and let me tell you that thing really sucks. And I mean that in a good way...


Another angle on the BT, there you can see the shop vac / thien rig that I hook up to the SCMS and sanders... I need to redo the wide table top. I am not happy with the way this one came out.


The tool stacker. I had to have somewhere to put my recycling bin, so there it is. Nice huh?


My Cheapie 12" slider with Freud blade, and shop vac connection for dust collection. It works a LOT better than stock, but that's not saying a whole lot...


My ladder up and out of the way.


A tiny shelf, just big enough to hold my drill press goodies. The pocket hole jig just sort of hangs from a screw in the sheetrock for now.


Full view of the drill press. The DP table is shop built using the hardware I stripped out of the Grizzly table I bought from Loring. It was a nice table that hated being on the coast so it swelled up... This one is plywood / hardboard lamination with walnut edging and oak pegs.


A bit more detail on the drill press table. The oak pegs are simply oak dowels from Rockler.


My retractable chuck key holder. I LOVE this thing...


The Texas star emblem. This usually lives on the gable above the shop doors, but since I still don't have my Christmas lights down, I have a lit star up there now...


The HF lathe, and band saw. I spend a LOT of time here. I think this orientation will work MUCH better than what I had originally posted...


Shelf full of handheld power tools, bits and accessories for the router, and drilling, safety stuff, bits and pieces, measuring and marking gear, some finishes, and abrasives. The shopping bags on the hooks hold fine, and medium grind sanding sponges.


This was a good attempt at a workbench. I am very unhappy with the results. At least I know what it is missing. MASS, and a LOT of it... One of my projects for 2011 is to build a new workbench, with a butcher block laminated SYP top, and a stouter base design. I have seen some designs on Shop Notes I like better than this...


The dust collector / air compressor stack changed places with the rolling tool box a couple of months ago to facilitate a straighter run with the DC duct work.


My first aid kit of course, the A/C remote control, and the thermostat. It is in the high 30s outside, the radiator is on the 600w setting, and it is reading 70+ degrees in there... No the propane heater is NOT on...


Misc "stuff" storage, mostly gloves, my wonder winder cord reel gizmo (it works okay, not great...) And of course my favorite Alan Jackson / Jimmy Buffet quote...


Clamp racks, safety gear, and glues...


The lumber rack is as clean as it is gonna get...


My pegboard still needs some attention. But I have no idea where to move stuff off to...
