I built this shop is 2003. It is 768 sq ft. It has central air and heat, cable tv, and restroom (no need to go into the house unless I have to). Most of the tools are the standard things you see in a shop. The oddball is the 3-router router table. I built this when I decided to resurface my kitchen cabinets. It made building the doors so much easier, not having to change bits a lot. In one of the pictures you see a “Sorry, We are closed” sign. This gets posted on the exterior of the door during nap time.

You have a nice shop and it appears to be well organized. I really like the router table. I can honestly say I have never seen a set-up like this. I have seen replaceable tops in order to keep from changing bits but this is an innovative idea. You have some other nice tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the tour. I have enjoyed visiting with you.

Very nice setup, Skip. You can get a lot of equipment in a small space, if you set it up right. Thanks for the post.
