Looks like a good shop with much more than basic tools.

Aaron, this is a nice shop that you have to work in. The wood floor is a particularily nice feature that you have in your shop. It is much easier to work on as opposed to concrete. You have managed to make effective use of the space that you have and you have put together a nice set of tools.

Thanks for the pictures.

That’s a good shop setup you have there… I would love a dedicated 12×16 outbuilding so I can keep my noise and dust away from my family.

You have really made good use of a smaller space. I like your miter saw bench with wings as well as the storage cabinet for your table saw.

Thanks for sharing.

Good luck!

Hey, Aaron, looks like a very nice shop with a lot of nice equipment. Your very fortunate to have started early. When you’re 60 years old like me there’s no telling what sort of shop you’ll end up with. Enjoy your woodworking and your life.

Aaron – you are amassing a lot of nice tools. I have to give you a lot of credit. Not many young men are willing to work hard and do what it takes to succeed. It looks like you’ll have a great future in something you like to do. Nice shop, buddy.

I really like your shop sign, I wish I had one just like it. Thanks for the tour, Aaron from California.
