Nice Shop! I have about 150 square feet, and the same type of equipment, plus 3 kilns. I use my desk for carving and clean work, I don't have room for two work stations. My saw is just a little trim saw; I have a tile saw I use outside for bigger rocks.

The motor mount is very clever. You must be ingenious to do lapidary work, or have enough money to buy all the specialized equipment. I'm like you, I make or refurbish most of my equipment.

I thought I had too many rocks, but you have me beat!

Thanks for the tour!

It seems like the better one is at Jury(ghetto) rigging the easier it is to function in this hobby. I know it's that way in blacksmithing, there we build most all of our own tools too. Nice bunch of equipment. I really like those see through shelves.
