this is my little shop in my grandparents garage. it started out as a apartment for me and my now ex girlfriend so i decided to make it a wood shop. its about 12×20 and needs many more tools and clamps to go with it.

You have certainly got some work to do! Getting organized and setting up can be quite motivating.

Jimmy, I can see a lot of potential in your shop. You have a nice space in which to work. A former co-worker of mine managed to produce some nice furniture in his shop which was 10×10 and he managed to squeeze a table saw, jointer and planer in there. But, of course, the key to his shop was organizing it to free up as much work space as possible. You are on the right track to work on some shop cabinetry and a bench. These will provide you with needed storage and dedicated work areas. And it looks as if you have most of the necessary tools to work with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
