This looks like a pretty nice shop to me. You have it well organized and I always enjoy seeing windows in a shop. You have put together a good looking tool collection and the Sawstop will be a nice addition as well.

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

I thought shiny was bad until Jen convinced me I was never going to have time to make a tool box so we went out and bought one and now my shop is far more organized and I can actually work on fun stuff. A good looking shop space, enjoy!

I love the pinch clamp in the big electrical junction box/fuse box, that keeps that fat wire in place

curious minds need to know why ?

That’s a shop with style. It looks like you have organized it well and have lots of nice tools and equipment. BTW, welcome to Lumberjocks.

Thanks for the comments. I really need to post some newer better quality picks. The clamp was used temporarily because the weight of the cable risked pulling it back into the crawl space.

Thanks fella’s. I am fortunate.

Smitty, I am bothered by my shop in that I covet that vintage quality to your shop. I am not quite sure how to get it. I don’t know what it is more metrosexual the terracotta paint or the thought of re-painting just for the looks.

I definitely plan on moving the gladiator cabinets and replacing the tool till.

my workbench is going where the maple dining table sits now.

And I’m ready for improved lighting, a quality window and enclosed cabinets like yours… :-)

You’ve got a great workspace. Stay flexible, make changes that work for you. Sometimes I wish my space was done, but then I realize I like tinkering.

Lighting- in the bay that the workshop is in I changed 2 fluorescent T12 fixtures the had either the magnetic or electronic ballast, can’t remember – the old ones that hum. I put in 4 bulb fixtures and put 2700 k T8s. This made a HUGE difference. I like the warmer light. I know it is not as brighter or true to color or whatever. But I really like it.

Didn’t add fixtures just changed them out.
