Well I finally took pictures of the shop . It is 100 square foot. Municipal bylaw would not permit me any bigger. It was originally intended to be a garden shed so it is not insulated (yet). As you can see space is limited but it is a lot better than my basement, now I only annoy the squirrels with the noise and dust. I pretty much have used all the wall space and I am storing my sheet goods in the rafters so I can easily access it but they get a bite dusty (I always forget to put my mask and glasses on when I take ply down and get a mouth full of dust every time) It is small but I don’t intend to produce any large piece this winter other than what I will be doing at furniture school (more on that later).

No, No, No,

The unwritten, unpublished , secret rule of Lumberjocks is you can’t cleanup before taking pictures- it makes the rest of us look bad!! ;^)

Lew beat me to it I see. To tell the truth I would rather see a shop in “working” condition rather than one that looks like an operating room. :)

As a self-professed shop addict I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your shop.

My wife always accuses me of napping in the sawdust pile around my jointer. As always, bbqKing.

I’m actually impressed with what you’ve done with 100 square feet…very functional…

Not seeing your lathe, the coolest tool in any shop. Otherwise nice layout, looks very functional. Also looks too clean to have a lathe in, must be why it is not in the picture, do you keep it at a freinds house?
