Retired Electronics engineer, came back home to Longview, TX, about 16 years ago. had me a contractor build ne about a 22 by 30 foot work shop in back yard. My wife says that I have wall to wall tools now, but she hasn’t seen some of the latest catalogues that I have. I am now searching for accessories that I need.

Clement, how about posting some pictures of your shop when you get an opportunity? It sounds interesting.

Now this is much better. You certainly do have a lot of tools in there. It does look like you have gone a long way towards filling the space up with tools (and with over 600 sq ft to fill that is a lot of tools). But a good portion of the enjoyment we have of woodworking comes from collecting tools along the way. The paneled walls give your shop a nice look. As I said in an earlier post there is no reason that a shop cannot be functional and look good as well.

You have a nice shop. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the picture. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Scott:
Thanks for the comeback. When I had the drawings for my shop made, I had the ceiling raised 2 in. above 8 ft. This is to allow me to stand an 4’ by 8’ upright and not scar the ceiling. I also had the walls thicknes including 1/2 in ply behind the paneling. So now when I nail, in a nail it will have something to hang onto.

Thanks again,
Clement

Great looking workshop…time to build another one just for the extra tools…and you’re scary neat. I’m embarrassed to say I’m not that neat…maybe I’d better change my ways.

Nice looking place to get away from it all, nice and bright. I like the choice of wall covering. I need to get rid of the drywall and get some t-111 up. Lets see some sawdust.
