This my carving shed, it is 16 feet long by 10 feet wide,insulated and wired, has an cove radiant electric heater mounted on the wall six feet off the floor. The heater keeps it at 68 F even at minus 30 F.Since I acquired the shed three years ago(2012) I have added a small drill press, a homemade dust collector, a 10 miter saw and a large assort of different species of wood including , pine, basswood, white cedar, yellow cedar and poplar.

Good layout for the shop. Your workbench looks a lot like mine – loaded with stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Nice!! Looks like an excellent getaway. Love the overall feel of the inside produced by your interior tongue and groove. Seems like it would be easy to gain inspiration while inside, sitting at the bench.

We all need bodyguards—they certainly bring great pleasure into our lives.

Great shop! I wish I had a little building that I could “get away” to. I like the stereo – gotta have music!

Nice shop. I’d be sure to get you some sort of dust collection using those foredoms and power carving tools.

Hi Roger Thanks for you comments about dust collection. I do have a collection system I use when running the foredom. I picked up a blower fan and motor that was used a bouncy house,i have a dust bag on the exhaust side of the fan and installed a 4 inch male fitting to the suction side of the fan and have flexible clothes dryer hose hooked to a lap board to collect the dust as i make it Before I a came up with idea I had a large dust collector that took up a lot of room in my shop and was extremely loud. I well take some pics of my set up and post them ,some time soon Bruce
