Hey folks! I spent my friday evening to clean up a nasty mess that my display case made. A glass panel on the display case (1/4” thick x 30” x 42”) has completely shattered on me making glass debris shatter across my workshop. So I got rid of the case and moved things around in my shop. Here is a new video of my shop… P.S. all of my DeWallys are in my “sanding station” job box.

It looks like a great place! I love when things are all organized like that. It seems like I get so much more pleasure in working in a clean environment and it is much safer, too. Thanks for sharing your shop with us. Wonderful job!

Mark, this is a pretty nice tour of your shop. It looks to be well organized and looks like a fun place in which to work.

That’s a nice shop and I’m glad that you didn’t get hurt when the glass shattered. Thanks for the update.

I was thinking about replacing the glass but that case just took up too much room. I figured its time for a change. But there is one thing I miss about the case, my DeWallys showing off and such easy access to choose which one I want to use. Now they’re all in their cases : ( But thanks for all the comments gang, glad you like my shop.
