Shop size is 24×32 which is
inside a pole type building that is 40×64 with 16’ sidewalls.
My rough wood supply is stored above the shop.
Some of the pictures were taken before I got my dust
collection hooked up.
The shop is so well insulated that I heat with 2 – 1500 watt
electric heaters which I only use to get the temp. to no
more than 50 degrees.

Charlie: Nice looking shop but you’ve got a problem with your wood supply. If you need that board at the bottom you are in trouble. Look at my workshop to see my lumber rack

Great supply of wood and pile of shavings, too. You’re one lucky man! ;^)

The RAS on the right has a dado head mounted there most of the time.

Hi Charlie,

You have a very nice shop and a wonderful stash of lumber. That looks like a lifetime supply to me. Wow!!! Do you have any way to keep track of it? I love the panel saw as well. This is a tool that most of us would like to have but simply don’t have room for. You have a nice set of tools to go with it as well.\

Thanks for the post. I would really enjoy working in your shop.

Well done, Charlie. I especially like the small forest stored above your shop. I’d never leave!
