My shop is a 400 square foot detached garage with a 16by 10 bar room on the back. I am currently laid off and have had the time to rearrange a bit, here are the updated photos.

Nice set-up, Rasta. Looks like you’re pretty well-equipped, too. Thanks for the Tour!

Rasta, this is a nice shop that you have to work it. I like your storage system for mounting tools and cabinetry to your wall. It can easily be customized for a specific tool and is strong and relatively inexpensive to build. Putting your power tools on wheels is a good idea for organizing your shop and keeping open work space in which to work.

You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. It looks like you pretty much have a nice collection of all the major tools. And I like the table saw center that you have built. That improves the functionality of your saw markedly.

Thanks for posting pictures of your shop. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Good looking setup you have there. If I am not mistaken Home Depot has quite a bit of your funds though. Love those Ridgid Contractor saws… While I like the R4511, I sure wish they were still selling the TS3660.

Great shop. Great pics. Great tool choices!

Great multimedia entertainment options!

Very well organized. Nice and roomy. Love the lumber racks, too. The “stand it against the wall” thing may be getting old, in my shop…..

And …. you have more than a few wheeled toys to keep you from getting bored!!! I don’t even care if you HAVE kids or don’t. Those are cool shop accessories :-D
