Scott, this looks like my kind of shop. This looks like a shop that is being used and has quite a bit of work going on. I like the way you are able to store your lumber. I have always thought that storing lumber vertically better enables access to individual boards. I have to store mine horizontally and getting to a particular board often means that I have to move a bunch of other wood to get to it.
You have a nice looking shop. Thanks for posting pictures of it. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Scott, you have a nice shop and a lot of tools; however, I think that you are a little careless with your electricity. I have seen how fast an electrical fire can start. I don’t mean any disrespect so please don’t take it that way. I just wouldn’t want you to have a fire. I’ve been in industrial plants all of my life and work around it in maintenance of our equipment. Electricity is so much more dangerous than most of us realize. I don’t think it would be good for your insurance agent to see some of these pics. Please don’t take this criticism the wrong way.

you are right about the hanging outlet.There used to be shelving there and the box was attached. Did you notice the one over the tablesaw? It is SO cable with strain relief ends. At least 1 was done right.I am pretty cavileer about power I admit. It is because of all the electrical work I have done. It will still kill me just as dead.

Scotty, I’m so glad you didn’t take this harshly. I was a little concerned whether you would or not – I’m seldom critical to any one on Lumberjocks – especially a newbie :). I’ve done a good bit of electrical work myself, much of it under the supervision of professional electricians. However, most of my electrical work has been on trouble shooting machinery controls.
Anyways, welcome to Lumberjocks and I do like your shop. It has the look of someone’s shop who is intent on accomplishing a lot of woodworking and getting the job done. As Scott said above, you have the kind of shop that I always love to go into and I just know that you will love it here on Lumberjocks. Take care, my friend. :)

Welcome to lumberjocks, it is nice to finally see a shop nearly as messy as mine…

I’m no expert on this, but shouldn’t that outlet box be nailed to a stud somewhere?
