This is my new shop. My wife and I recently moved back to Memphis and I Turned one of the storage areas in the house into my woodworking shop. Im still working out the layout, and I need a tablesaw station/work table on wheels for the center. Of course I would like all the top models of tools and the big ones at that but those will come in due time. The Miter saw station is two craftsman tables put together with a platform drop. My planer is on wheels with drill press accessories on the lower shelves. The router table I made custom for me and is one of my favorite tools in my shop. The drill press is a recent purchase at $50 from an retired woodworker. I added that dp table and tracks. In the back I have a desk area for reading plans, working on computer and whatever for that matter. My old shop was great for what it was but Im sure glad I’m in the new one. : )

D1st, this is a nice looking shop that you have to work in. I have always thought that a stand alone shop is the way to go but you definately need some power in there. I also like the headroom that you have in there. You can easily handle sheet goods and long boards without any problem. I have just under 8’ to the joists and it can be an adventure at times to move sheet goods around and dodge light fixtures.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

My tires when flat on my Husky Compressor too. I just put mine on a piece of 2.5 inch foam padding, and I put it in a add on well house thing on the outside of my garage. Nice and quiet, I’ll take pictures and show ya! Nice shop, we need to exchange secrets on bread bord making, I like your cutting board a lot too. My first shop was a 10×10 shed I built at an older house.

It seems when It gets to freezing the tires get low. No problem though. I have my compressor on some metal roof decking so the tires dont rot as fast. I would build an xtra area for it but Im trying to move out of here, so i dont want to do anything to change the look around here anymore than I have. I like the boards you have got. Im sure I could learn a trick or two from you. Let me know.

I think that it’s a very nice shop. I love the building that it’s in and, hey, I love those dogs. Your shop has great potential.
