I have been in my new shop a little over a year now, but it seems to have a mind of its own.
I have been rearranging equipment and adding new storage. Most all of the Items are close to finished, Most of the shop cabinets still need drawer faces. I am quite happy with the way they are working out. My
main bench has a 5” thick maple top, with a Chestnut base cabinet.

Also directly behind my main work area are my Tool Chest, and my Cutter storage/hardware storage Chest.

As well as storage behind the fence at my Miter saw station.

I will go into more detail maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for looking, Todd

Very cool. Has an old world look to it.

The pictures are rather gloomy. Is it brighter in person?

I actually have quite a lot of light, but it was a gloomy day. My building is an old warehouse 15,000 sf , with my shop around 3000 sf. Anyway the windows are old steel sash, so I have covered them over from the inside with
lexan. They could use a good cleaning, but I have to take the Lexan down to do that. I do not like to clean windows anyway. As they get dirtier I will have to put up more lighting.

My cabinet with Cutter and Hardware storage has router bits and shaper cutters on the top.

Below the Bits and Cutters are the drawers of hardware.
