« Part 7: Shop Tour Part 8 of In the Shop series no next part

Well I finally got my shop setup somewhat like I wanted… it is time to move. SWMBO and I built a new house and start moving in this weekend. Like my current shop, the new one will be in the basement. I will have windows and a walk out access that will make it feel less like a dungeon. The downside (or upside, depending on how you look at it) is that it is a completely clean slate, no framed walls, now outlets, no nothing. I look at my current shop as a test run for my next (hopefully final) shop. I learned a lot about what I like and do not like so I should be in good shape and excited to get to work.

I will be blogging about the progress over the course of the year. The space is approximately 20’ x 30’

Congratulations on your new home John. I’m sure you will make an even better shop based on what you’ve learned from the old one. That said, a shop is never optimal as most of us find new woodworking interests and we have to constantly alter our shops to keep up with the changing needs.
