Here’s my work shop that I settled into in August right after I got married. It is attached to our house, which has its pros and cons, but it’ll do for now. I “officially” started my business in January. I don’t do it full time now, but I’ve been keeping plenty busy. Also here is a link to my Website as well, thats my online workspace, right? Constructive criticism is always appreciated, on the shop and the site.

What did you put on your floor? In an earlier post you talked about an epoxy floor but it almost looks like plywood.

Oh, your shop looks great. I like the tables and counter top, nothing complicated but they look very functional.

I can’t get the link to your web site to work, i would like to see it.

Larry, I did go with an epoxy finish, it may look like ply in one spot because there is a rectangular outline of where I spray painted something, woops. I love the floor tho, easy on the eyes, and easy to sweep up. I fixed the link so it should work now. My current center work bench is just particle board. It works ok, but I desperately need to build a good heavy duty one, just need to make some time!

Thanks for all the compliments, glad you all like it. Yes it is a little bit clean in the pics, but its not always that way. I gave it a hardcore cleaning this week and then snapped some pics, although I do find that once you have a clean shop its easier to keep it up, then to let it all pile up and then do a big clean. Right now, it’s a fun little side business and helps keep me busy in the winter and slow times since my other job is farming. I enjoy both jobs, so it really is a win win, and the lord has blessed me! And to ChefHdan you can go right a head with the planer idea, it saves a ton of space, and works quite well, just make sure they’re both right at the same height.
