The workshop is defintely a one person shop. It is 22 feet long north to south and 11 feet wide east to west. The building is a 30’ x 30’ pole barn. The remainder of the barn stores the necessary equiptment for a 15 acre farm. Compact Kubota tractor, Five foot grading blade, DR Power grader for 1/4 mile of drive and easement road, mowers, tiller, bush hog, etc…. The shop is insulated and heated with kerosene heater for now and cooled with a window air conditioner. Sheet goods are cut on saw horses in main barn. When weather is nice jointer and planer are rolled out of shop and used outside for better dust control.

It provides me with many hours of learning the craft of woodworking and keeping the brain cells busy during retirement. Drop by any time. Coffee or ice tea are always on the menu.

Hi Bill,

This is a nice shop. It is well organized and you have a nice set of tools. I could work in there.

Thanks for sharing and I enjoyed the visit.

Thanks for the comments. I have a confession to make though. I just finished a project and cleaned the shop so I thought I would post. Only looks this way .01% of the time.

Thanks for looking . Coffee is on still.

You have a great looking shop. My new shop is about the same size as yours (14’ X 21’). I still need to build shop cabinets and buy the rest of the equipment. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
