Ridgid planer, table saw and router, Ryobi router table(can you have too many routers?), DeWalt cordless drill and finish nailer, Bosch jigsaw, assorted sanders, biscuit jointer, drill press and my favorite tool that I have used the least? My Akeda 24” dovetail jig.

When making something I get out a large folding table to lay out pieces, unless they will fit on the workbench.

The whole thing is nothing more than a garage stall, but for now it works….

You know? I don’t have a single one of my tools or shop, which is nothing more than the third stall in my garage…..

Mikey, your shop sounds interesting. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of it when you get a chance to post them.

Clicked on the tab, I see no place in which to add photos other than an outside website?

Mikey, it looks like you have things organized in there. Bummer about the “non-essentials” that you have in there. It seems that whenever my wife decides that something, which she can’t bear to part with, needs to be stored invariably she suggests that MY shop has room for it. And I gave up long ago trying to keep both a garage and a shop. I just got tired of moving my tools around to accommodate my truck and then having to move my truck out to set up the shop. Eventually I just let my truck sit outside and set up a permanent shop space. The biggest plus of doing this was that it gave me more room for tools!!!

But you have made pretty good use of the space that you have available and the shelves that you built add much needed storage space to your shop. Using the folding table is a good idea as well. This is a pretty effective assembly table that can be disassembled when the project is completed and stored in a relatively small space until needed again.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks Scott. as soon as I get the chance to go through the storage room in the basement and get rid of some of the old crap down there, I’ll have room to put the non-essential stuff that is in the shop. THEN I can do a better job of organization…..

I visited your shop, VERY nice.
