Well, my workshop has changed looks and locations.

My church has a one car garage with a room attached. It has been used only for storage, mostly junk no one wants and the church just wanted it to be used for better purposes.

I offered to do all of the maintenance at the church for the use of the shop for multiple purposes.

1. My own workshop. Able to run my business and do some personal stuff as well.

2. A location to set up for church projects. All tools are already there, makes it more efficient.

3. I am starting up a ministry to help people who can’t afford repairs to there homes. This would be a central location for volunteers to gather, most tools already there.

Needless to say, they said yes. I have started moving my shop to this location, so, it is now to be my new shop.

I am leaving the old shop pics up to show the difference. They will be the first 2, the rest will be the new shop.

How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the opportunity? Visual tours of other shops are always welcomed.

Don’t want to be a “polly the parrot” but all of us really like pictures. Go figure?

There will be no laughing I assure you. I have always said that any shop is a good shop and each one is unique and special in its own right. A former co-worker had a 10×10 shop that had a table saw and benchtop jointer and planer in his shop. The space was tight but he managed to produce some beautiful furniture and cabinetry in his shop.

It will be interesting to see yours.

ha ha ha your shop looks like mine only with snow on the ground:) I know about the thirty min setup and cleanup it seems like thats all you do when you have a storage area in the middle of your shop. I cant wait to see some projects.

Dennis, it does look like you have a lot going on in your shop. I am sure the constant tear down and set-up is a challenge that you could live without and, of course, you are limited by the weather. But we do what we must to “feed” our addiction. One of the big advantages of your shop is that it is a stand alone building. I have always thought that this is the way to go. My wife will generally let me know about it if I fire up my planer before she gets out of bed. :)

Thanks for posting pictures of your shop. I enjoyed touring it.

My “SHOP” ...is actually a 4 X 15 foot section of my garage. I feel your pain about the set-up and tear down! It also seems like you can never find what you’re looking for when you need it and when you’re looking for something else, you stumble across what you were looking for in the first place! BUt, if you enjoy wood working as much as I do, you always seem to find a way. I have a good selection of tools that I’ve built up over the years and all of them (including my work bench) are on wheels.
