It’s just a basement shop, nice and messy, measures 25×15, It’s my happy place. I didn’t plan anything it just kinda evolved, I had the workbench from a previous shop, built the lumber rack never thinking I would fill it, added the outfeed tables to the table saw so I could build the “miter saw and storage” norms plan. Then I built the dust collector with the old squirrel cage from the old furnace, then made the storage bins and sheet goods cart, then made the flip top cart for the planer and scrollsaw. Most tools are on wheels due to limeted space. Newest tool is the craigslist bandsaw find, The previous owners dog pissed all over the base cabinet and it completely rusted, was really nasty! I sandblasted the base and repainted it, tuned it up and it works great. I use the outfeed tables as a workbench because the workbench has become a lumber rack. Woods in the shop are elm, oak, maple, ash, walnut, box elder, all of which I milled. Turning stock is stored outside of the shop on a shelf which has also become full. I can’t stop myself from looking for wood.

One nice looking basement shop. May have to show it to the DW though so she can see that I do not have that much wood. I hear ya though it is hard to see a good tree get tossed.

Your shop looks great! Everyones shop is their happy place no matter where it is. When you get a stand alone shop you’ll appreciate it a whole lot more from where you started. I know I do I also started in the basement.

Thanks all for the nice comments. Redryder, I am a wood addict and their is no cure, my garage is packed as high as i can reach with ash, walnut, different kinds of maple, cherry, elm, and white oak. Having a chainsaw mill has been very rewarding. Scrollingmom, oh how I yearn for more space! but I’m happy with what I have and what I can do for now, hopefully someday a free standing shop.

Hello, I see you are in my area and I REALLY want a paper rack, see photo below and let me know if you can do something like that with about 70 paper slots.
