Nice shop Gene. Whatcha building over in that corner? The peg board swing out cases are nifty.

Gene—Looks like lots of room from here! And well organized. Is that chest of drawers a shop-built unit, or a repurposed piece of bedroom or office furniture?

Great shop space, Gene. I like the cabinets within the cabinets. I also like the Shopsmith (at least I think it is a Shopsmith).

Thanks guys and Candy.
Bill, these pics are a bit old. That was an oak gun cabinet for my son.
Don, that “Chest” was built in place. The top is leftover bamboo flooring.
Gary, that’s where I keep my hats…the ones I have left.
Chris, You nailed it. That’s one of the Shopsmiths. That one has the Jointech mod with the router table on the end.
Those peg board cabinets were built from plans from Wood Magazine.
As I said, the pics are over a year old. Gone is the Delta planer in favor of the De Walt. Got another Shopsmith and I use it’s drill press function so, the Bench top DP next to the SCMS is gone, too.

Color me green with envy of your storage, and the rest of the shop. I hope you guys won’t hold it against me if I don’t hold my breath waiting for Candy to be organized.

As nice as your shop space WAS….
We need current images, to see the alterations/additions/deletions and the MESS!!!

A nice refuge indeed. I am too new at wood working and too old in age to ever get to where I would have all that space and all those tools at hand but I can still dream! LOL
