Geez, this is what was once called an “occasion of sin.”

There are going to be a whole lot of people coveting that workshop! Now, what commandment was that anyway?

Very cool shop. I am extremely jealous. I can only dream of the day I have a seperate dedicated shop.

Wow! You have a great space there. I love the heavy beam ceiling, it’s absolutely perfect.
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

Fantastic! Almost too nice!

However, no workshop is ever truly “finished”. Keep us posted with your progress.

That’s a great Coke cooler.

Great looking shop…. You’ll enjoy every hour you spend in there.

Make sure you spray or sprinkle around your foundation every year to keep the carpenter ants out of the foam board insulation… They love to make their little nests in the iso board and once they are in, they are very hard to get rid of.

Don’t ask me how I know this.

Hi bungy,

Now that’s what you call a real “wood” shop.
You will really appreciate the insulated wood floor, way better than standing on concrete all day.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful. Nothing better than a woodworking shop with all that wood showing.

WOW!!!! I am envious of that shop space. As others have said all that wood would make it feel so warm and inviting. Don’t know that I would ever leave there. Outstanding JOB!!!!
