This is certainly a good looking shop that you have put together. It looks like a nice place just to hang out and make some sawdust. I have always thought that having a stand alone shop is the way to go.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

And, by the way, let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you on-board as a member of the group.

I thought I’d finally listen to my wife and clean my shop. I figured while it was reasonably clean I’d snap a few shots.

I love that window bench, too. Wished I had more windows, better view, some of those hand tools, etc. etc. etc… Very nice, Don! :-)

Superb Don. You could run courses in that shop. Book me onto the first one.
