Take a tour of Harry’s Garage Shop

NOTE: Harry is using the original jig/template system that was the basis for the high quality and improved FactoryTracTM jig & template system that has been in use since 2006.
We are constantly asked,

“What size shop do I need?”
“Can I operate out of my garage?”
“How should I lay out my shop?”
“What equipment do I need?”
To answer those questions, let’s visit Harry Wilk’s garage shop where he has operated his Eureka Producer Program for over five years. As Harry says, “it’s tight, but I have managed to produce thousands and thousands of dollars in Eureka furniture during the last five years in this small shop. It’s been great fun and I look forward to building more and more furniture in the future.”

Harry’s shop is 22 feet X 25 feet with an 8 foot ceiling. He utilizes basic woodworking tools to produce the Eureka Furniture. That includes, contractor grade table saw, chop saw, 14” band saw, router, sander, etc. His major upgrades include a Woodmaster 26” drum sander and a Delta Sanding Center, all made possible by the profits Harry generated in his garage shop.

 2. A view from the door of the garage which shows the Delta Sanding Center; table saw and rear wall of garage where tools are stored for easy use. Note the large out feed table for the table saw. It is actually the full length of the table saw and fence table; 4’ X 8’. You also get a very good view of the tube sander attachment on the sanding station. It is a very good tool for shaping parts after being cut on the band saw.

 3. Another view of the miter saw station. Note the in feed and out feed tables used to hold the western red cedar steady for easy cutting and the compressor area stored underneath the bench. The bench is designed to provide good storage and all of the walls are used for storage including easy access to the precision cut templates.

 4. Continuing along the South wall of the shop take note of the two stage vacuum, more precision cut templates and tool storage. The vacuum has a splitter which allows it to be connected to multiple tools reducing the effects of airborne dust.

7. The north wall of the shop contains all of the portable equipment on casters including the router table, band saw, planer, double head flap sander and jointer. All are put on casters so they can easily moved out into the shop for use and back against the wall, out of the way so there is plenty of free floor space to work on the Eureka furniture lines.
 8. A view back toward the garage door shows more storage and the jointer on casters pushed back out of the way of the shop.

10. Band saw with table attached that is used to mount the two multi-purpose cutting jigs. Shown mounted on the table is the T-Jig used to make multiple parts including the lower & middle canoe, curved seat butt slat piece and the 1” upper canoe.
11. The multi-purpose assembly jig shown sitting on a table that has casters which makes it very easy to use because the table can turn on the casters allowing you to work on both sides of the jig from one side.
That’s the tour of Harry’s garage shop. It is tight but effective. If you have any questions or want more information about Harry’s shop or the tools within, please contact Harry Wilk by phone or email.
