Here are a few pictures of my workshop. I’ll write a description of some of my tools (electron and human powered) in the near future.

I see function, function, function… which speaks to my engineers soul :^)

What kind of building do you have this in? I’m not familiar with that insulation material and am guessing it’s some kind of metal building.

Love the wall mounted hand tool crib…. and a nice collection filling it up.

Looks like your set up without a TS…. hear lots of guys asking about that…. but I think yours is the first shop I’ve seen that has lot’s of capability, and still no TS. (unless it’s hiding and I missed it)

Thanks for your kind words. The shop is located in the basement of my house. The metal looking stuff on the walls is just some cheap insulation the home builder put up on the poured cement walls. It’s pretty cool in pictures, but not so much in person.

The shop is more organized now than it was when I started but its still a mess in certain areas. At one point I had the planner, chop saw and the drill press on the floor, which made for a very frustrating experience. One day I decided enough was enough and built the stands where they now sit. As you can see, i still have not finished the base cabinets for the chop saw. I still have to build the drawers (it’s been like this for 2yrs).

The shop lighting is a recent addition (about 1 month old). I spent $350 dollars on four Lithonia Model SB 432 plus the bulbs. At first I debating spending all that money on lighting instead of tools, but I had another “enough is enough” moment and decided to buy them. It was a good decision, Working and being in the shop is far more enjoyable now and i wished i had spent the money sooner.
