My New Woodworking Shop
« on: November 27, 2016, 03:37:20 pm »
 About 10 years ago I moved to Marion Louisiana, and begin building a house. I designed a woodworking shop about 20' x 40' which ended up not being finished. After the area was framed up, it ended up being used as storage. I finally got around a couple of months ago to finish off the framed up work area. My nephew helped me move the HEAVY machinery into the area, after being in storage all these years. It's a happy day!
 

 
After organizing the tools where they need to be, The first project will be reproduction of two Hammond organ cabinets. I've been a musician all my life, and owned a Hammond B3 since the age of 15. It's HEAVY, and the guys do NOT want to lift the thing when we play. I've got the bright idea of making the thing lighter by having the base legs collapse into a flight case, and the main body lift into a separate one. The main body will also have a digital preamp, which replaces the heavier tube preamp. Also the case will be build out of cypress, which will be lighter than the hardwood plywood on the originals. Here is a photo of how the finished product SHOULD look:
 

 
I'll try to update progress on the project to know if it is a flop, or not!

Thanks for all the nice words! BTW, I have a through wall heat pump from Home Depot in the wall to the right in the middle of the room. The room is totally insulated. I've already found that it takes about 10 minutes for it to cool down OR heat up to happy, happy, happy! I'll update when I have a project done. 8)

Wow! Looks great! Gives me a perspective on how much room I should have in my new shop I'm building. Mine will be 30x30 so almost the same size.

After lots and lots of organizing a lifetime of tools, screws, nails, etc., I finally began my Hammond organ reproduction project:

 
This is the first time I've used my lathe in probably 15 years. It still works! I'll post some more pictures as I go along. I'm trying to build a cabinet which can be more portable than the original made by Hammond, and yet be as close in appearance as the original Hammond B3 organ when set up.

That is a great looking shop!

Please tell me about your walls. Is it tongue and groove? What type of wood?

Thanks

Jon: Yes, the walls are 1x8 tongue and groove pine which I bought locally. My time is limited, and so I could not mill the lumber for the walls. I used 3/8" plywood in the ceiling and the floor. The floor had an existing 3/4" subfloor, and so I put down felt before applying the plywood on top so there would be a vapor barrier. I insulated the walls and ceiling before applying the plywood and T&G.
