Finally sucked it up and just took some pictures of the workshop. It’s a mess….I know, it’s in transition and I figure I’ll post some updated pictures when I’m further along with the cleanup/reorganization.

I’ve been juggling trying to get some things fixed up in the workshop, try to get some woodworking done and try and get some home renovations done. So far, the renovations are winning…but I’m fighting back.

This workshop has evolved a lot over the years. It started as a Black and Decker workmate bench and a jigsaw. As my wife will attest to, the workshop seems to keep expanding (like the universe, or my waist…depending on who you ask). I’ve got it to a workable state now and also have lumber storage in a rack outside the workshop (within the garage) that is hiding behind a pile of home renovation materials. Once that work gets done, I’ll be able to clean up the rack and include a picture. If I took the picture today it would look a lot like a big box aisle…drywall, toilet, tub, doors….just have to remember that I did this to myself.

I’m totally open to comments, criticisms and suggestions. I think half the fun of woodworking is building the workshop and buying the tools that fill it….so I might as well celebrate that I’ve still got play time to get it the way I want it.
