I wanted a personal shop for years, even though I had a fantastic production shop to use. Finally, about three years ago I was able to get it. It is 40’ x 60’, and it is amazing how quickly I can fill it up. I use about 2/3 of it for my shop and the other is storage. Finally, I can work on personal projects without putting everything up for the next workday! The workbench I bought from Garrett Wade 8 years ago, but am dying to build my own after seeing all the cool benches here. I have spent a lot of time lately building jigs which I will post shortly. As you can see I have a lot of Bridge City Toolworks stuff. Yeah I’m spoiled!

Kent, what a wonderful shop space you have in which to work. It is well organized and it looks like you have plenty of room in there as well. But, like clamps, time and tools, I have yet to meet a woodworker who claims they have enough space in their shop. You have a really nice collection of hand and marking tools as well. And I like your collection of power tools as well. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
