Here is a shot of my machine shop with my favorite lathe, a 1956 Monarch 10EE




I like the Monarch, in New Zealand you dont tend to see them about but I love the look of them. If I had the opportunity then a 10EE would be in my shop as well.

Construction season is almost here and my 6 week layoff is about over. I had to clean the shop so it's a great time for some photos and to point out a few features.

The heart of a shop (I'm more of an amateur tripod maker,BTW) is the table saw. Due to minimal space I wanted an outfeed table that would fold down and the accordion style legs fit the bill. Table is a torsion box and has stayed flat for 3-4 years so far....light and strong!

Rounding the corner and there's the workbench popularized by Popular Woodworking.

John,

You could eat from the floor in most of these workshops. I think most of the poster cleaned thoroughly before making these pictures.
Therefore I will NOT post a picture of mine...
