Nice shop, plenty of room.
Since you’re in FL I guess you don’t have to worry about the challenge to heat a space like that.
I wish I had the cash to justify renting a small place to setup shop.

Thanks for the shop post. You have wonderful place to work and it is great having a lumber supplier next door. I really like your idea on the dedicated router set up. I was contemplating building another station or two for this same purpose but simply replacing the top is a vast improvement.

Thanks for the post and the inspiration as well.

Hey Trim, it looks great. And shucks, I bet you cleaned it all up just for us.

I’m really impressed with your shop, you managed to thin it down to everyting you need and nothing you don’t. A true sign of someone who knows his business.
