Two views of my small shop in use, typical of what it looks like while I am working in it. The shop is 12 ft by 30 ft. The table saw, jointer and planer are on wheels and mostly out of sight. The two lathes are the heart of the shop and get the most use, except for the dust collector of course. (Thanks Darryl)

Update: I am slowly moving into a new shop with a new dust collector. The bandsaw and lathe are hooked up and running.

Yours look like a busy man’s shop, Curt. I also had a 12×36 shed built intending to give back the 2-car garage to my wife. No such luck! It wasn’t big enough to set up the heavy tools (that are already on wheels) to give me walk-around room. I was having to roll some of them out to the driveway so i can work – at the mercy of weather. The roll-out and back-in even to do a small job took at least half an hour. So making a cut and just walk away was totally out of the question. Now that I moved all the excess household stuff out of the garage in the the new shed, I’m planning how to best install and route my dust collecting system, my carving area and the work bench so I can walk around it! My first step is to rig better lighting fixtures, install a wood storage wall unit and wall insulation and an efficient window A/C unit so I can work your round. We’re just like farmers that we are never short of things we have to attend to, aren’t we, Curt? Wait! I’m not griping! I actually look forward to going to work in my shop everyday! Sure beat going to work for someone else! I am especially happy whenever I finish a project and say, “this is proudly made in America, by an American”! By the way, you’re turning out some nice work, Curt – pun intended :D ! !
