I worked out of a 14’ x 14’ shed for years. Its where my hand tool infliction started. I love the fact I now have a real shop with bigger tools, but often stand an wonder why I have them. I use the hand tools almost all the time now anyhow (other than a few basics). I have started to hate the noise, dust and unemotional product that comes with them.

Some of the newer scaled down tools, like the bench top table saws, bench top jointer and such have come a long long way. Hell you can get the bench top jointers with helical cutters now.

I guess I’ve just reworded helluvawreck’s post, but thats my 2 cents.
