Greetings & Salutations,

My shop is the back 20×30 feet of an out building that is 30×50. I have the walls and ceiling covered with 5/8 OSB with 6 inch insulation in the side walls and 14 inches of blown insulation in the ceiling.

I have a double door that I made myself that is 6’ wide and can be opened up to bring large objects in and out. Just outside the double doors is a 10×10 bathroom with full tub and shower, toilet and vanity. Still enough room to add shelves, more storage, or what ever I may decide.

My tools consist of a number of Grizzly products including 10” Tables saw, 14” Band Saw, Lathe, 6” joiner, 12 speed 14” Drill press, 10” Delta Miter Saw, Powermatic 16-32 Drum Sander, 13 Delta Planer, Penn State portable Dust Collector. I also have a number of portable tools and hand tools.

In addition I have built a outfeed table for the saw with cabinet, a 4×8 torsion box style assembly table and a woodworking work bench.

The shop is air conditioned and has a ventless propane heater for the cooler days.

I also have a large roll around mechanics tool box, several storage cabinets and racks.

Thanks for looking and your comments are welcome.

Gene, you have a really nice shop space in which to work. It looks like you have organized it well and you have some nice tools to play with as well. It looks like you have plenty of space and headroom in which to work.

You have a nice shop. I would enjoy working in a shop like this.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Thanks for the tour. Shop looks nice. I had a grizzly TS just like yours with the extensions when I had my cabinet shop. I built a cabinet on the rear just like you did so I could handle all those long sheets of plywood myself.
