I work as a professional. I have been fortunate to have recently moved the business into a new space. This gave me the fun oportunity to sit down and take everything I learned from my first shop and start from scratch. If your gonna move a bunch of heavy tools, lets do it once huh?!? Transitioned from a 800 square foot space, with about 1000’ squared of covered out door space, to a 3800 square foot shop with a 3000’ squared yard. The kicker is I only bought one new tool. That means if you want to tap into idea’s about how to get the most out of a small space, I have a lot of experience with this. The shop is set up for cabinet making, primarily, then exterior door construction, then cabinet support (drawer boxes, doors, panels etc.), custom furniture, and then antique modification and refurbishment. Posted are photos of the old space and the last 2 are the new space.
