This is my ultimate mancave, a 24 X 24 ft space under my barn. I dug it out to install a wood floor. I left it unfinished to allow it to breath and remain dry. The workbench in the NE corner view is built into the floor and the top is an old solid wood door(very flat). The other bench is a Harbor Freight junk. All my tools are strategically placed, for instance the jointer is sitting on blocks to clear other tools in the event I work a long board. The lumber rack on N wall has a plywood caddy under it which is on a large swivel wheel so I can add or subtract larger pieces with ease. I collected all my tools over lots of years by pocketing coffee money over the years (about $5 per day). That means it took about 6 months to buy my Tormek and jigs. My table saw is an exception. When I built my shop, the wife told me to buy any saw I wanted. I could have bought a bigger one, but this small Jet cabinet saw is one I can control and is good enough to handle any job so far. It is very accurate. Tools you can’t see are in the Green file cabinet (Bosch jig saw, planes and scrapers, measuring tools, Dremel, biscuit jointer etc. The limited 24 X 24 space is big enough and easy to heat. I’m delighted
