My workshop it isnt much but its a hobby. The building is a 10X20 rent to own and it gives me a place to go do my own thing “Woodworking”

There’s nothing wrong with your shop It looks like a nice comfortable place to work.

If your shop is big enough for you than it’s a good shop.

It is nice sized place. In fact mine is of similar size 22 X 14. What matters is how efficiently various power tools and lumber and plywood sheets are organised for easy access.
all the best.

Bigger does not always equate to better. I have outgrown my ‘hobby’ wood shop over the past few years, but this forces me to be more creative with respect to stationary tool positioning, storage, etc. It also forced me to buy more mobile bases for my larger tools. :-) Just keep enjoying what you do. Thanks for sharing.

I feel your pain. Mobile bases will soon become your friend.
A few 2X4 ties on the trusses and you could have some storage for wood. You have a nice setup for shelves on the back wall.
Try Google Sketchup and import in models of your tools. You can then move them around the shop on the computer and find the best layout. I did that before I wired so i would have a very conveniently placed receptacle.

My first shop was about 9X12, and some of my best work came out of there. Sometimes simpler is better…just make it your space and enjoy…

A shop is as a shop does so if you it works for you then size doesnt matter.@jaykaypur everyone is usually born with at least 2 sanders. I’m sorry you were not. LOL

I am a subscriber to teenwoodworker on youtube and his wood shop is about 1/4 of the area you have here. Very nice setup and great place to practice your craft. If your shop is like mine, I spend the majority of my spare time there. Sorta my own clubhouse with only me as the only member. LOL

Much better than the small sliver of garage I have. Maybe I can talk my wife into one…

My first wood shop was a 10 by 12 shed, spent more productive time then, than I do now.

Looks great, I see lots of tools that I don’t have yet. One of these days I’ll get some good tools.
