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.

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.Tom
