My current shop that I am blessed with is a 12’x16’ building with n 8’ high walls.
two of the photos are when I undertook the task of building my new shop in June of 2009 although I am geared to build any projects my primary projects are outdoor furniture, kitchen cabinets and scroll saw art.
Also you may notice if you look closely you will see a few of my 53+ industrial safety signs rescued from the scrap pile. Almost all of my machines are Delta or De Walt.

This looks pretty good, Elmer. I have always thought that having a stand alone shop is the way to go. And it is good to see that you have some natural light getting in there as well. You have a nice shop in which to work that appears to be well organized.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nice shop, and bonus points for all the signs… safety first! Thanks for the tour.

a) Very cool!

b) One of those pictures looked crystal clear to me. It was probably blurry ;-)

c) A lot of people recommend against nuclear power for a wood shop. I say … to each, their own ;-)

d) Are … are … are you hiding a Biesemeyer fence, in there?

Very nice shop! Thanks for having us by for a visit—one of MY favorite parts about the LJ site!

Hey, sawblade, that’s a real nice shop. There’s nothing better than a shop in an outbuiding all it’s own. It keeps the dust out of the house and makes the wife a little happier. You have some nice tools too.

Nice little shop, are you going to cover the walls? Looking forward to seeing any improvement that you make. Good luck, Steve in Oregon
