The light in your shop is unbelievable! I have a basement shop for which I am grateful, but I am totally dependent upon artificial light. You, on the other hand, can gaze out into God’s world for inspiration and relaxation.

Love the light. I’ve got a detached garage with no windows. Looks like a great place to work. Enjoy.

Dittos on the natural light. Great use of limited space too.

But, I gotta say, I luv ya man! Finally!
A wood shop that doesn’t look cleaner and more organized than a hospital surgery! I see those pictures and of shop machines sitting on what looks like buffed vinyl flooring, every machine, hose and line at perfectly fixed angles in relation to each other, and not a speck of dust anywhere!... I just feel like I have to hide.

Please believe I do not mean this in any derogatory fashion. You can see your shop is worked in. I mean, you can tell those (wood working I presume?) magazines in the shelf get run through, pulled down and read. Some things are left on the bench for a while because dangitall, you’re just not done with it yet! You get the picture.

I see you have your dust makers in one area and your assembly-finishing set in your other. I am setting myself up along those lines too.

Another thing I noticed. Your vacuum line is metal. Grounded, that solves the static question automatically doesn’t it?
Finally, looks like a nice garden you have there too. Over all, you have maximised your limited space into a place that looks like you really can enjoy working in.

Have your say...
