This is where I spend my days (and alot of my nights). I have been wood working for a number of years but until about a year ago I was moving my shop every six months here and there. Basic anyone who had a spare garage or out biulding was my next potetial shop. Just as I’d get settled in a place they’d need their space back so I’d have to relocate. Apartment life is not condusive to woodworking. My mother is the property manage for a owner/developer in town (a freind of mine and quit a wood worker himself) who had a large shop building on some land he’d perchased. It was a great place for a business but the land was not zoned commercial. The one business that tried to rent it was turned in and had to leave. My mother suggested that he turn the office and storage rooms on one end of the building into an apartment for me and I’d move my shop in. So he did. Soon after moving I got tired of walking through my shop every day to go work at a cabinet shop when I had a better shop of my own that I didn’t even have to walk outside to get to. I quit and started working my already astablish business fulltime. It seems like a woodworker’s farry tale to me. I give all the glory to God who has blessed me so abundantly.

You have a really nice space in which to work. I agree with Lew about the head room. Having this much space sure makes handling sheet goods a lot easier. Your shop looks well organized as well.

Thanks for the post. I would enjoy working in there.

Your work certainly deserves this shop.
I have only a 20ft commute to my shop, it’s great no wasted time. Lucky I have a wonderful wife who accepts the trail of sawdust.
