my first wood shop was built on a treated lumber base (sitting on blocks). i guess in theory its movable. i have outgrown it and now use my garage (still unheated) to house my tools and equipment. since i started out with hand tools and a circular saw, this space initially fit my needs. shed now stores my lumber and some miscellaneous junk.

Nice building! I just wish I had such a nice place to store my wood. ;-)

Nice shop/building. That reminds me the first shop I built in the early 70’s. It was 8’ X 8’, outside measurements, but insulated.

It was small, but it was heaven. Believe it or not, I made several jealous. It’s not the size that is important, it’s comfort, the setup, and of course, the heart of the woodworker that count.

I like your doors, and I particularly like the small crest you made with the tree. Great!

That is a nice little building. I really like the door latch for the side door. :-) I have one something like that to hold my door open.

the 4×4 leaning against the door is not the door latch.

What are the dimensions? Looks pretty snug but woodworkers always find a way to make a space work.
