Thanks my friend. Its a bit small only 14 by 26 but yes I used every inch. The tools are a collection of about 22 years and almost everyone on sale or floor model. A lot of them were also gifts over the years from my lovely wife of 38 years. I also got a lot of great deals when Woodworkers Warehouse went out of business.

Real nice.
There’s a lotta stuff, but the space has a good feel about it.

Is the air compressor outside?

A lot of nice important details.
I particularly like the wonderful overhead storage; windows to bring the outdoors in; the fire extinguisher (we don’t see enough shops with them); the vise mounted on the knee wall; and an important tool, an electric pencil sharpener.

Looks like you can tackle just about anything that comes down the pike.

All the best,
Peter

Thanks peter, it has taken me some time to squeeze all that stuff into its small space but other than a few tight spots, it work well. The compressor is to the right of the overhead door in the corner behind the fireplace base it just fit in that small corner and helps keep the noise down after I lined it with Styrofoam to absorb the noise and vibration. I hope to finally be able to get in there and build things instead of just house repairs and the like.

Thank you everyone for visiting my shop. Everything is on wheels as well cause I’m always changing it around trying to make it fit better so I can buy some more tools lol. Just kidding I think I have everything I need. Sorry I just discovered that I have a Workshop page I guess I should have put all this stuff over there. Well I guess I can do a more detailed page at a later date.

Noticed that you have 2 vacs and a dust collector. Do you have a preference between the mobile vs the wall mounted vac?

Teriffic shop! I especially like the computor screen and is that an air conditioner vent I see? must be a wonderful place to be. A Chesty Puller picture would be right at home here!
Have fun!

Thank you Jerry! Gary South – Actually the small vac is a carry over from my office shop and the bigger shop vac is from all the remolding and is still used for the remainder. The dust collector is great but a lot of the equipment has lousy dust ports, which I am endeavoring to rectify with better enclosures. Gary East – I hate a dirty shop! Mostly it gets used for remolding but I have built kitchen and bathroom cabinets and other house projects but hope to start building furniture soon! Mely thanks and I have to have a computer for LJ lol, as for Chesty I do have a shot of Norm on the shelf with the woodworkers prayer and I assume since you know who Chesty is you must be a Marine as well so Semper Fi!
