You should check out your fellow countryman Yorkshire Stewart. I think his shop is smaller than yours, but it doesn’t keep him from turning out fantastic work.

Looks like a nice old work bench you’ve got there. If I ever get through cutting plywood, I’ll be able to set up shop in a lot smaller place than what I’ve got. I use have fuzzy dice hanging in my car, but this is the first time I’ve seen them hanging in a work shop. :] Thanks for the post.

Andy,

You have a nice looking shop there. I really like the bench. It does look like it has some stories to tell. You have organized your hand tools well- something that is necessary for those of us who have limited shop space.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Shops like yours are great to hole up in on rainy weekends and wintry days. My first shop was much like yours including the brick walls. Brings back good times. bbqKing

That shop looks very functional to me… it reminds me of my first shop. It was about 3/4 that size. It was in an old garage and wasn’t insulated. I like to froze to death… but those were the days. It’s not the size of the shop that matters, it’s the woodworker in it! It looks great, Andy, thanks for posting it!

Nice shop with nice storage and hand tool tills. The old workbench proves that you have spent hundreds of hours using it.
I wish I would be able to check out every LJs’ shop. You kow, starting from yesterday, my target is to visit at least 5 LJs’ shops a day.

Karson i don’t intend on cleaning the work bench its suppose to be nearly 100 years old but that is debatable i just love the thought that a true craftmans used the bench before i got my grubby mits on it LOL….i have a great love for used and old tools that have history
