I currently use one stall in a three stall garage. When necessary I use a second stall temporarily. The wife and I plan on moving in about a year at which time I am going to build a dedicated shop. The workbench was built from plans in a magazine. The walls have been completed since these pictures were taken.

looks like you do a good job at keeping it to the designated area. Great willpower I’m guessing :)

A great looking shop Iowa, but I bet you are looking forward to a dedicated shop one day.

A nice selection of tools you have too. Looks like you have all the bases covered.

It’s not a Porsche, it’s a Pontiac Solstice. And, I’ve given up holding it down to one stall. I am now consuming two. My car never gets parked inside anymore. Perhaps during the winter I’ll try to keep down to one again.

Owen, that sure is a nice shop. It looks great and you have a lot of nice tools and equipment. BTW, what’s that special looking jig or fixture that looks like it has some linear motion bearings and ways on it? Welcome to Lumberjocks – you’ll enjoy it.

Well, small but looks everything is in it. I would also love to have my own shop. And my inspiration from this kind of furniture at, perhaps my ideology.

Have your say...
