Here’s my shop in Cary NC… I built the main shop in 2004, and added the wood storage section this spring (2011). I recently finished building mobile cabinets for all my tools, which has greatly increased the virtual floor space, because I can re-arrange the machines as needed.

Nice shop! What size building is that? It didn’t look that big from the outside photo, but looks quite spacious inside.

@Paden501 – the main shop is 12×20, and the “addition” is 12×8. When we moved in to the neighborhood, I had to jump through hoops with the Homeowners association – they had to approve before I could build… as a result, I was cautious about the size… if I had it to do over again, I would have made it 14 wide… But it works well inside, especially now that I’ve got everything on wheels.

Nice workshop and tool selection. Looks like you got everything you need to do a lot of different projects. I especially like the miter saw table. Did you get the plans somewhere or design it yourself?

@Sam – The miter saw table was a plan that I downloaded from – “Miter Saw Station DN3115” cost $5.95 I built it pretty much to the plan… the plan was very good.

@oldreddog – The casters are 3” double locking caster from Woodcraft. They are great casters. In the Woodcraft catalog they are pricey ($18 each) – but my local Woodcraft store has had them for a long time as a “managers special” for $9 or $10 each… well worth it!
