Just a large open area with adjustable shelves, something the wife wanted. It works for her so that is the important thing.

Yes Cherry, I love to work with it. It is hard to finish sometimes but still worth it.

Very nice job Les!

Very nice i like the way the front corners are done, by angling them you have added a smoothness to the piece that has taken away some of the boxy look. Again, very nice work you should be proud.

Yes I draw up the plans, I am coping a certain style the wife and I like, but it always changes. This is the 6th piece I have build in this style. I have 2 end tables in the works right now.

There are shelves behind the door.

I guess the shop stays clean because I have a dust collector on about everything. I also clean up some every day I work in there.
