Like the others I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your shop. Visual tours of other shops are one of the benefits of being involved with this group.

This is a pretty nice looking shop that you have to work in. I like the cabinetry that has been added to it. I have changed my mind with regard to shop furniture. At one time I believed that shop furniture needed only to be functional. However, after seeing posts with functional cabinetry and jigs that also looked nice, as your cabinets do, I have come to believe that both looks and functionality can be incorporated into shop furniture.

It looks like you have room to maneuver in there as well. And that is a nice downdraft table that you have built. I have one of these on my to-do list as they help control the fugitive dust emissions that are part of the sanding process. You have a nice set of tools to work with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

All I can say is WOW. At your age I had a Swiss Army Knife, a cheap socket set, a couple of hand saws, and a hammer. All of them came from garage sales… You are off to a great start!
