Really nice workshop. Looks like you are not in need of good woodworking machinery either.

Beautiful part of the country there too. I have family in the Asheville area and love the mountains.

Kjwoodworking,
Thanks, then you should know the Mountains here in North Carolina are the oldest mountains in the world. We also have the 2nd oldest river in the world. Named the New River.

Fantastic shop! I like the fact that it has that well-used look on the inside.

Quebecnewf,
I would love to see it when you finish. My shop is 30X31 with about 1500 Sq. Ft. I drew the plans for my shop and my Home from a blank piece of paper the Home is also big 7000 Sq. Ft. But that is easy for me as a Builder. I have lived a long time and now the shop is my dream place.
