I like to think I’m pretty lucky, I bought a garage and it came with a house. That being said I was able to convert half the garage into my shop. Someday I’d like to turn the other half into a gallery/gift shop. There are a lot of horror stories about Harbor Frieght’s Centeral Machinery, but it’s what I can afford. I like to think that if you know how to work your wood you also know how to work your equipment. Yup, I’ve had to tweak and modify a little bit. Although a few of my hand tools (planes, chisels, saws) I got when the time was right. So far so good though, I’ve been able to turn out quite a few projects. All are welcome to my shop.

Nick, it looks like you have put together a pretty nice shop. You have it organized well and I especially like windows that you have in your shop. It looks like they will let quite a bit of natural light in there.

Thanks for the picture. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Thanks for the feedback. I was able to add a few more shots after my kids were put to bed. Hope you like them as well. Nick

Nick. you have a very nice shop with lots of tools and equipment. It looks like it would be a pleasure to work in your shop. Congratulations.
