I finally had a chance to cleanup and remodel my shop. I made a new workbench and added a new router table. I also do custom golf club making and repairs (my other passion). I plan to add a new band saw and jointer. I sold my old ones before relocating.

Obiwan, you have a nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have added plenty of storage and you have ample room to move around in there. Having a window in the shop is a bonus as well. My wife would enjoy using your shop as an example of how a shop should look. She constantly reminds me that mine is too cramped, not very well organized and, on occasion, has too much dust (she firmly believes in keeping things neat and orderly). :)

You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. And that is a nice looking bench that you have added to your shop. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the pictures. It was fun touring your shop.

Thanks to all that posted! That’s the barest my shop has looked in several months due to project load. As Scott Bryan mentioned, keeping things neat and orderly is a plus for me. I stop frequently during projects to cleanup my messes and put away tools and scrap that I don’t need. It not only helps from an organizing standpoint, but also for safety as well.
