This is the 4th iteration of my shop in as many years.
The shop itself is a 20’x60’ metal building. Unfortunately it is most un-insulated.
My tool collection has been slowly growing and evolving. I’ve been scrolling for 15+ years and have two saws setup, an older 14” RBI and a 19” Excalibur. The lathe was a Christmas gift from SWMBO and the drill press was a wedding gift from one of my groomsmen. My Delta 36-600 table saw recently suffered a very noisy and painful death and was replaced by his big bro, a well loved Unisaw. What a difference!
Tools still to come are a Jointer and planer.
Upcoming improvements are finishing the insulating, OSB walls, paint, more electrical outlets (are there ever enough?), better overhead lighting positioning, dropped ceiling and a cyclone DC system.

Jamie, I will also echo Jim’s picture question. Visual tours of other shop help those of us who are admitted shop addicts get our daily fix. :)

After 1300 days I posted pictures. Of course this isn’t the same shop.
