We’d love to hear about it. I am intrigued by the porch on your shop. Looks like a nice place for a father and son to kick back, sip tea, and smell sawdust together…

Jack, this is a nice shop that you have in which to work. Being a stand alone structure it makes it convenient to run power tools and apply finishes without bothering other members of the family. The few times that I have needed to run my planer early in the morning (before my wife gets up, of course) have gotten me yelled at since she is not a morning person. :) The wood floor is a plus as well. It is much easier to work on wood rather than concrete. The overhang does extend the working area of your shop.

You have a nice set of cabinets in there and it looks like you have made pretty effective use of the space that you have.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Very nice shop, and I thought mine was small. The first pick looks like a shipping container is next to your shop., use it for storage?

You make some very nice things! That’s a lovely chest.

Nice little shop, I noticed the small size doesen’t have any impact at all on the things you produce, I really like that chest. I like the porch as well, one thing I miss about having my shop in a garage is the fact that when your in the basement there is no garage door to open or big window to let the air blow through. Thanks for the post.

Jack, your shop maybe small but at least you have a shop.

Have your say...
