My shop is a humble little man cave. It’s attached to the house, but with outdoor access only. With ony about the space of a single-car garage, I have most all tools of significant size on wheels. The room is pretty well insulated, and I’ve installed a small gas radiant heater which takes the chill off in just a few minutes, even on the coldest winter days. (...not all that cold here in the Seattle area)

I’ll add more info later, and maybe even attempt some photos.

Hi Greg,

I will ditto Gary’s comment about the pictures. Visual tours of other shops are an enjoyable aspect of this community.

So now the question becomes… shoot, do I slip into the now-shabby shop and make it look sharp, or just make the shop ship shape in Photoshop?

Greg,

Just go ahead and shoot some pictures. When I am in the middle of a project every hand tool I own seems to end up on the assembly bench and then I don’t have any room to assemble the project. Plus I have a bad habit of rolling my tools out and then just putting them back wherever I can find a spot. It drive my wife nuts (but I don’t do it intentionally I assure you :) ). Then she has to get in there and reorganize everything. Of course her idea of neat is not very practical in that, while it may be neat, you can’t get to anything because another tool is stacked in front of it.

Enough of my rambling. I am looking forward to a tour of your shop.
