I’m curious about the metal siding inside. What made you do that instead of normal stuff? Your shop looks a lot like mine (construction) except for the clutter. You seemed to have misplaced the clutter. I keep mine in the open so it can be easily seen, stepped in/on/over. Oh…your walls are insulated. Another difference. I think I like your building….wanna swap?

Yeah, sure you ran out of room after putting a picture of a pack of dogs in there too. Nope, this shop is way to big and well equiped to be here. No, you need to pack that baby up and well, tell you what, I’ll take some of that equipment off your hands just to help you out. Yeah, send me that saw, and that jointer, and I’ll take that shaper off your hands too. Now put up a couple of walls to make it smaller and I’m sure it’ll fit now.

Good job,

You’re very lucky to have people like OutPutter to help you out of your misery. Just another wonderful thing about the LJ site ;-)

Great shop. Nice tool choices (this, from a guy with the same jointer…..). If THAT DC won’t get it done, it’s time to invest in scuba gear!

Nice pics. Thanks for sharing!

What OutPutter doesn’t help you with, I’ll take.
Just as a favor naturally. You don’t have to pay me or anything.

I like the fifth picture. I prefer high angle, wide shots over closeups of machines. Gives us a better overall feel for the place.
