Meridian, Idaho 83646
United States

I built a 20×30 shop with a second story in 2009, and I am at a stage where I purchased a tablesaw, bandsaw, jointer, and sander from Shopfox at a local euipment store. Just starting to get serious about doing some projects as time allows. I do have 30 years of accumulated tools and metal working tools like a welder and sand blaster as well as I have restored 2 Willys Jeeps.

Just took pictures of my humble little shop in my back yard. I have lived at this house since 1998, and told my wife I will probably die here. Gonna retire from my first career in federal law enforcement December 2014 when I turn 50 and then do something else, but in the mean time I hang out in my shop and tinker.

Hope you enjoy the pictures, again nothing fancy, it is the biggest shop I could fit in my back yard. As always it needed to be twice as big to fit all the stuff a guy accumulates.

Time, you have a great looking shop and it looks like you have a lot going on in there. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.
