Welcome to my shop! My shop is in my garage witch can present some space problems considering my lawnmower takes up space were I would like to put wood working tools.But I have three answers for that problem Wheels, Wheels, Wheels. Almost all my tools are on wheels or the tool is small enough to carry and set up on some sort of temporary work station IE.saw horses and a piece of plywood.I have plenty of power 2, 220 volt out lets and 10, 110 volt outlets.My biggest challenge wood working in South West Florida is the heat and humidity(95 degrees 80% humidity) I don’t even bother trying large projects in the summer due to the heat but mostly the humidity but the winter and fall are just perfect.
We are on a 5 year plan to move back to the northeast just outside of Buffalo.Buffalo you say! Yes I say buffalo!!! Top ten reasons to move back to Buffalo 1.It really doesn’t snow as much as people would like you to think.There are plenty of places that have more annual snow fall than Buffalo! 2.The food.At the turn of the century when all the immigrant’s came over from Europe a lot of them stayed in buffalo and made lives there and brought all that great old world way of making and preparing food,”God bless em”.3.The seasons.Fall is so beautiful in buffalo but don’t blink your eyes or winter will be there when you open them and winter isn’t really that bad if you got some serious wood working to do!4. Niagara Falls, still wow’s me to this day I never took it for granted!5.Da Bills even though we have never won a Super Bowel I still love me some Buffalo Bills.6.The Sabre’s.The new owner is a Buffalo boy and wants to win a Stanley Cup he is a billionaire!7.Culture Buffalo has got some,sorry SW Florida you aint got nun! The Allen Town art festival is a 35 year old art festival, 3 blocks of cool stuff to look at.8.Family and friends,no more need to be said here.9.4 acres and a out building just for my shop alone,NO LAWN MOWERS ALOUD! 10 People are nice there, again sorry Florida.And the number 10 reason to move back to Buffalo….....TONS OF PLACES TO GET HARD WOOD!!!! Hope I didn’t ofend any Floridians but you just cant get the Buffalo out of the boy! Guess there 11 reasons to move back to buffalo!

Chipy, you have put together a nice looking shop. Wheels definitely are the solution to shop organization and really help with utilization of the available shop space. You also have a pretty nice tool collection as well.
