Hi Jim,
Thanks, it is a great place to do a lot of tinkering and fixing things in need of repair.
It is well stocked so I seldom have to go out and buy things which is nice.
I think I may be a little anal retentive and tried to have a place for everything
and everything in its place….Ha
Oh well, my dad was that way so I blame it on him…..
Thanks again for looking.

Bob, this is a really nice shop that you have. It looks to be well organized and I like all the cabinetry that you have in there. I am not sure I would be able to remember where I stored everything if I had that many cabinets in my shop. :) I also like the way you have used pegboard in your shop. Like you, I have put the entire front wall of my shop in pegboard. It does make an economical wall covering that helps to store and organize hand tools. It is also a huge bonus, in my book, to have windows in the shop as you do. I find working under natural light to be easier.

I like your portable tool storage cabinet that you have. I have seriously considered adding one of these to my shop, as well, for those tools which do not get used everyday. I would add one of these to free up counter space.

You have a nice shop and I would enjoy working in there. Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

I noticed the sheet of paper on your work bench was a little crooked. You might want to fix that ;-) Just kidding, I like things clean and organized myself.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

You can thank Big Lots for all of my tilt out bins, the red screw bins, black bolt bins and the 2’X2’ rubber mats on the floor. I covered the entire 24’X26’ area with mats. The rubber mats are wonderful to work on all day and I used larger casters on the mobile units so they roll easier on the rubber mats.

I used to buy the $20 roll of 1000 ft butcher paper at Sams for the roller on the end of my mobile work cart and just pull the paper over the top when I was painting something. But leave it to Craigs List where I found that gargantuan roll of heavier grade paper for just $40 so I figure that will last me about 50 years…Ha

How did we ever live before Big Lots and Craigs list????

Some more of Jacksonville fl on lumberjocks! Excellent!

The shop looks great! I have to ask since we’re in the same area, where do you get lumber? So far the only decent place I’ve found is Florida southern plywood on lane ave.
