My workshop is a 8×10 shed. This is where all my youtube videos are made, apart from my lathe i have pretty much handy-man tools but with some ingenuity i have made it into a proper woodworking shop. I work with both hand and power tools. My shop is forever changing so it probably wont be like this for long but i will try to update this as much as possible.

Well, first off, it’s a beautiful shed and you seem to have made the most of it. The nice thing about it is that you still have a good bit more wall space. I expect that you will continue to improve it. Even though it is small you’ve done a lot with it. A small shop is always better IMHO than no shop at all. Congratulations.

Adam, your shed/workshop is a good start and will give you ideas of how to plan a bigger one later on where you will have more room to put your tools in and more work area. Some people here start off not even having a shed to work in, they just work on their porch under a veranda, luckily you have a place to keep your tools safe and out of the bad wet weather.
You can always look around LJs for inspiration of what you might want to include in a shop of your dreams, but don’t get carried away, take one tiny step at a time.
I guess that now your school summer holiday is starting you will be spending a lot of time making stuff. Be careful and have fun.

I like your workshop a lot. It looks very well organized, neat and clean. My first table saw was a lot like yours, a circle saw clamped upside down in table. I did a lot of heavy work on it and ripped some very long boards. I still use it occasionally for outdoor projects away from home and it still works very well for me. Woodworking is more about skills than tools, so I hope you won’t let yourself be dazzled by all the fancy tools so many have. Most of the work we do can be accomplished with simple hand tools which take up a lot less space and make a lot less noisy and sawdust.
