Wow!!! what a nice shop space you have to work in. I really have come to like putting finished furniture grade cabinets in shops. For years I felt that since this was “just shop space” functionality was all that needed to be addressed. But you not only have taken care of functionality with these cabinets but also added some nice form with them as well. I also like the way you have taken them up to the ceiling. This adds a lot of usable storage space. You have a nice set of tools to play with in addition to the nice shop set-up. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

You’ve given me a handful of ideas. But you’ve set the bar pretty high. Nice work.

Oh yeah! That is one nice shop! Well equipped and well planned out! Maybe a little cleaner than I am used to, but I’ll not hold that against you! :) I am a big fan of the Delta Unisaw with the Biesmeyer fence.. I have had several friends with that set up and it always worked like a charm! I’ll be over to your place about 10ish with some walnut and curly maple… Just kidding! I would definately work in there!

Nice shop!

I especially like your abundant cabinets and the configuration of the table saw out-feeds and nearby benches. Nice arrangement, nice tools!

Spanky, Yes that is a very nice shop. I have a slight disadvantage in the winter though. My wife’s blankity blank car is in there too.

I need to get into the workshop section more so not to miss gems like yours. The cabinets look great. Gives the shop a nice clean look with a smooth flow. Nice set-up with alot of room to work.
