Bent, this is a nice shop space in which to work. I like the design of your tool stands. Keeping everything the same height is a great idea and butting them together adds versatility to your shop layout. The assembly table appears to be well built and adding the pegboard storage to it was a good idea. And thanks for sharing the pictures of the old woodshop. Those are a nice part of your family’s history.

Thanks for the pictures of your shop. I enjoyed visiting with you.
