Edit: These pictures are from around 2008, maybe earlier. I’ll try to get some new pictures.

It’s an old shed built by the original owner’s son when he was fourteen, from scrap lumber and 20,000 ring shank nails. The place is a bit cramped but dry and cozy. No heat but it does have air conditioning! In the winter I run a milk house heater which barely manages to take the chill off.

Since this picture I’ve ripped out the middle wall and reoriented my tablesaw. Originally the place was divided into four rooms and it took me an entire weekend to tear out a single wall because of all the ring shank nails, wish I’d had a Sawzall back then but it was just me and a crowbar. I do occasionally clean it up and blow out the dust… occasionally.

You can see part of my router table which I threw together quickly mid-project sitting on the rolling cabinet/work bench. The cabinet is ugly but heavy and solid. I also have the workbenches along the wall but they always seem to be cluttered. I keep meaning to build a nicer router table but never get around to it. On my tablesaw is part of a mahogany foot rest.

Nice shop though.
Slowly as time goes by, a project completed after another, you’ll get inspired to make over or just reorganize! Thanks for sharing & enjoy woodworking the safe way.

It looks like you could do your share of wooding there. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

Thanks. Someday I hope to tear it down and build a nicer shop.
