My shed is 60feet wide and 120feet long. That houses my stuff.
Outside I have a 20ft container where I air dry and store my cedar/silky oak maple etc.timber.
I am always on the lookout for timber with unusual grain or features. I realise now at 76 years old I should have taken up one of the furniture/cabinetmaker apprenticeships offered by two of my uncles.
I had a wonderful manual training teacher named Mac See with whom I am still in contact after all these years.
We met again just recently and talked of times gone by and the good memories of those days.

Some of the tools/machinery. 17” bandsaw. Oscillating sander. Compound mitre saw.. 14” bandsaw,mini bandsaw in back. 6” joiner planer. Stash of timber.

BJ, I will echo Jim’s comment about the pictures. How about posting some of your shop when you get the chance? Your shop sounds interesting and visual tours of other shops are always well received.

Booge, you have a pretty nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have plenty of room in there and, with the headroom that you have, you have no problems with handling sheet goods and long boards.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
