Topic tags/keywords: chiefwoodworker shop layout shop tour

Chiefwoodworker is a fellow Lumberjock and I have looked his shop over many times since I began to plan my own. I love his shop and he builds beautiful furniture as well. His shop is only 30’ x 30’ but looks much bigger. He has a drawing of his layout and also about 187 pictures of what he does in his shop. He’s very impressive and a nice guy as well.

Here is his shop layout.

Here is his shop tour which also shows you a lot of the nice furniture that he builds.

Nice shop, I wish I had his space. Mine is about 1/4th that size.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, I think his shop is real nice but he basically has just a complete setup of power tools but hasn’t really gone overboard.
