Well after a couple of weeks of work it’s starting to come together.

I was really surprised that all my workbenches and drafting table fit in the shed with room to move around.

Here are the latest pictures….
1. Left side of the workshop. The workbench to the left is the finishing area (painting, gluing, etc.). The far corner is the scrollsawing corner.
2. Right side of the workshop. Here is the drafting area.
3. Workshop as a whole. The far right corner is for carving.

Now that all the large things are moved in, I can start moving in the small stuff.

More updates coming soon.

That stuff is fitting in there nicely. I have mostly bench top tools as well which makes a versatile shop. The one thing I don’t have is an air conditioner in the back wall. Of course in a month I’ll start thinking about heat. Thanks for the post.

looks awesome- roomy, and with plenty of place to move about and be able to work – sometime people forget that you also need THAT in a workshop…

Enjoy living the Dream!

You must be as happy as a fox in a hen house. Did you add an intercom or telephone just in case? Now all you need is set of radio headphone/ear protection. Very nice job.

Super nice!
I have one concern. You didn’t mention a collection system for such a closed in space. My uncle almost lost his entire shop when dust built up in a motor… hurray for fire extinquishers!
I am jealous to say the least.
