I am currently working in one stall of my 3 car garage. Most of the time, I park my car in the drive, so I really have a 2 stall workshop and my wife’s car gets to collect the saw dust. My saw is pushing 16 years old and is getting tired. My planar is about 10 years and is gettign tired. My chop saw is pushing 10 years and is gettign tired. See the trend? Lots of fatigue, but lots of enjoyable use. Recently, my son and I built my workbench. It is the first time I have ever had a good place to build. I found it makes all of the difference in the world. He enjoyed it so much that he is already talking about getting it when I pass. Oh Well, at least he has goals. I have been in my shop for 1 year and have added a woodburning stove to keep my warm during the winter, and a vac to keep the dust down. Sorry no pictures at this time. I will get some up soon.

Glad to see your son taking up with it. Enjoy that time with him. My three used to enjoy it but times have changed. They used to talk about how someday they would like to have all that stuff but now they want to make sure I have everything listed and valued for when the estate sale happens. Enjoy !

Your shop sounds interesting. I am looking forward to taking a tour of it when you get the chance to post some pictures.
