Ok so it’s not the cleanest workshop, I usually save the heavy duty cleaning for when I start a new project. Everything built in here is for function more than appearance, if I get an idea on how to make a built in or table look better I do it, typically months after the fact. I have two table saws, a bench top and a full size model, both Craftsman both over 20+ years old, (time to replace, the runout is getting close to unacceptable proportions). I try to keep multiples of every tool in case one goes down in the middle of a project, I only have 2 routers unlike a1Jim that could open up his own router outlet store with his collection. Everything built in the workshop is recycled, reclaimed lumber except the out feed table for the saw, I use that for assembly so I needed it to be smooth and level. The shop is 20 X 20, but I have one of the kitchen cabinets (wall Oven) with a large footprint, and (23) 80 lb bags of cement for another outdoor project. Enjoy looking and comments and questions are always welcome.

Sorry the pictures are not that great, it was taken with my phone, lost the camera in the moving process and still have not been able to locate it.

Looks like you accomplish a fair amount out of that shop. Why else would it look so “Lived In”!!!

Thanks for looking,
@Mike, when I need a break or if something is not going 100% as planned that six pack of Guiness Stout comes in handy.
@Jim pretty close to the way I like it, granted it’s not as impressive as the sea of routers you have on hand, but I can tell you the refrigerator is fully stocked.
@Helluvawreck I spent a couple weeks ago organizing everything and stowing everything away, that lasted until I started another project and couldn’t remember where everything was.
@Randy when I am on a roll I have worked through the night, hence the lived in look. I cant wait until I replace my kitchen microwave, that means the shop gets a new appliance.

Have your say...
