:update I added two more pictures and removed on redundant picture. the first two are what it looked like before and the last two current. I will work more to get it organized and do some more cleaning.

I have a three car garage and the third stall is my entire shop though I have everything on wheels right now that get moved when I back out the cars. Then when I get done working I clean up move the tools back and put the cars back in. My shop is a mess right now I am hoping to improve how its set up.

Woods
I mainly work with recycled woods because its what I can afford plus its fun reusing woods that I never would have thought would be good for much more than trash. I have cut offs from a cabinet shop of Oak and Maple. I brought home some cedar from a neighbors fence to reuse and have made some neat stuff so far. Its easier when you have tools to re mill the wood.

Your shop sounds interesting. Any chance we could get some pictures of it posted?

Joe, you have an interesting shop space in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of headroom in there as well. I can’t really tell from the pictures but it looks like the floor is painted. If so then that really helps with the lighting as opposed with leaving the concrete in its natural color. It looks like you have a lot going on in there as well.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Did some work cleaning up a bit one weekend. I hope to get some pictures soon on how it looks now.
