Pretty small workshop, but pretty huge deck.
Shop size 7’4” X 9’5” interior.
Yes, I crammed all that stuff in there. lol I mostly move my equipment out to the deck or the driveway to use them. Safer that way.

Bill, how about adding some pictures of your shop when you get the chance? Tours of other shops are always an interesting post to see.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, Bill. Pictures of your shop will be great when you get time to get ‘em up.

Bill, I like your shop and I think that you have made the most of the room that you have. There is nothing wrong with having to work outside. Whenever I’m working on something large I invariably end up doing some of my work outside. Congratulations.

Bill, I have always thought that having a stand alone shop is the way to go. And, as far as size goes, it is surprising what can be done in smaller sized shops. A former co-worker had a 100 sq ft shop that included a contractor’s table saw, benchtop jointer and planer. It was tight in there but he still managed to turn out some gorgeous pieces of furniture and cabinetry. And the lathe is another plus in my book. I do not have one in my shop yet but one is high on my wish list since I can see that one would be a lot of fun to use.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Yes, the lathe was a nice find, it was given to me for free by a friend whose wife had had enough of it in the garage.
Glad to have everyone over lol, thanks for the kind words and, as always “ya all come back now ya hear?”

Oh No! He took his tractor apart to make wood working machines! It’s a take off of that independant PTO isn’t it. Nice to have you aboard! (Yes, a bad pun that.) I know people with a toothbrush, pair of tweezers, and a pocket knife that can make far better stuff than me with my tablesaw and stuff and its not the tools but the end results and our happiness that matters right? Hmmm…happiness is a 17” Bandsaw….and a work bench…and…oh..you know what I mean.

Lol, I believe you are talking about the boat steering wheel on the wall RS, no tractor in my yard. lol
I’m sure the things you make are nice, and as time goes by you (and I) will get better.
I’m just learning this stuff. As long as your safe and having fun doing it. :)

Its not always the size of the shop that counts, but the size of the heart that makes it work. Cool shop, there’s only one problem that I could see right off, you forgot to restock the Captain Morgan. LOL
