My workshop is what is called a 20X20 pull together hog shed. They were sold primarily in the day for raising small pigs, and you could buy them at the local lumberyard in 2 halves. Each half was 10’ wide by 20’ long, and upon arriving at the farm were joined together with the main beam down the middle. Shop is not large, but is very convenient and easy to keep warm in the winter/cool in the summer. Contains old, but all recently rebuilt machinery (by me) as listed. Belsaw 9103 Surface Planer, Craftsman 10” Table saw, Craftsman Radial Arm Saw, Craftsman 12” bandsaw, Craftsman lathe, Craftsman Drill Press, Homemade Router Table with a Porter Cable router, Craftsman 6” jointer, Hegner 22v Multimax Scroll Saw, Jet Dust collection (motor and bag unit in seperate side structure resembling an outhouse) with 4” ducting throughout for the machines, Delta hanging air filtration unit. In seperate shop at farm is a Jet 18” bandsaw for resawing purposes…(too tall to fit in woodshop)

Comfy looking shop! Makes my 4’7” between the washer/dryer and car in my garage look pretty small. Nice looking tools. Thanks for posting!

This is a nice shop that you have to work in. It looks like you have organized it well and you appear to have room to maneuver between the tool stations. And, of course, having a shop that is heated and air conditioned is a huge bonus as well. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Nice shop! I especially like the wood burning stove. It just seems to me that a shop heated with a wood burning stove on a cold winter’s day would be a really nice environment to work in. Also, I have the same Craftsman 12” bandsaw as you. It was passed down to me by my father.
