I’m kind of a tool nut as you can see. I had this 12×16x8 shed built about a year ago and me and a friend did the interior. The building has a double floor with 8 inches of insulation, 2×6 walls and ceiling with 6 in, of spray foam on sides and top. Outside is covered with chip board then wraped with tar paper then cover all with metal. The inside top to bottom is all covered with no-show peg board and the top and bottom shelf are all made of melamein. I have 13 plug ins and 3 2×4 floresent lights with 4 bulbs per light. I tinker around with different things but mainly make pens but just bought a ringmaster to mess around with. I guess I live with the moto he who dies with the most tool wins

Yikes. Ever get the feeling you’re living IN the toolbox? Nice left-handed computer. Those are hard to come by :)

Looks great Leroy you should also post this as your workshop, your building is the same size as mine 12×16 and I make great use out of mine, actually it looks bigger then it really is.

Leroy, you rascal! This is one really nice shop. Toys galore and I really like how you set up your lathe station alongside your sharpening station. I bet the workflow is just perfect for you. Really nice.

I can’t imagine the years it’ll take me to get that many tools…. but I’ve always been one to challenge myself.

Nice shop!

Leroy,

Looking at the photos, seems like I’ve wandered into the tool section at Lowes!

I take it the computer is running your tool inventory and locator database. After all, it’s hard to keep track of all those hammers if you don’t know how many you have.

Great shop.

Be Careful!
