Slimjim, it looks like you have a nice start on your shop to me. With the way your tools are arranged and the power tools being mobile I am guessing that you still have to park a car in your shop. I tried that for a long time but eventually gave up and let my truck sit outside. This saved me time on the constant tear down and set up, while letting me have room for more tools.

You have put together a nice collection of tools that look like you are well on your way with pursuing your woodworking hobby.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

You have a real nice shop and even though you say it’s coming along slowly you will get there before you know it.
