I can well understand why you do not have a car in there. I tried for years to maintain both a garage and a shop but just got tired of moving everything around to accommodate my truck. Now is sits outside and this gives me more room for tools! You have a nice shop in which to work. I really like the cabinetry that you have put in there. I used to be of the opinion that shop furniture needed only to be functional. But after looking at some nicely adorned shops I have come to the realization that shop furniture can have both form and function, which your cabinetry does. I also like the ceiling height that you have in there. It makes handling and storing full sized sheet goods and long boards much easier when you do not have to worry about hitting ceiling joists or light fixtures.

You have a nice set of tools to play with too. And it looks as if you have most of the tool groups covered.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
