basement garage.
nice sized space (to me) but low ceiling.
Also has the breaker box for the house in it so if I ever need 220 it should be pretty easy.
sorry for the mess but this is usually what it looks like!

Nice shop. A little mess goes with getting things done.

Thanks for sharing.

P.S. My Mom lives in Avoce Iowa south west of you on I-80.

Derek, this is a pretty nice shop that you have to work in. Like Rick said, you can’t get anything done without creating some mess. My shop gets fairly disordered when I am in the middle of a build and every hand tool I own seems to migrate to my assembly bench which, in turn, leaves no room to assemble the project. I also like the idea of storing plywood and lumber together as you have done in your shop. To me this saves shop space and keeps both the sheet goods and hardwood organized.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

i love my unifence. I’m contemplating building a mobile tablesaw cabinet for the delta contractor’s saw and unifence. could put a router plate in there too. So many projects, so little time. As you can see I’ve been busy with the adirondack chairs.

Someday I also hope to make a real workbench (with a woodworker’s vice!) That’s a belt sander that has been mounted in my bench vise, it looks kinda funny but works very well.
