You have a nice shop space. You have organized it well and you have some nice tools to play with. I like the wood floor that you have in there. That is so much easier to work on as opposed to concrete. Using pegboard for tool storage, as you have, is a good idea. Pegboard is a good way to help organize tools. It offers a large storage surface, it easy to attach to studded walls and is relatively inexpensive to use. Another nice point about your shop is that it is detached from the house. This is a nice set-up, especially when running power tools or putting a finish on a project. At times I have wished that I had a set-up like this. I get yelled at a lot for “tracking sawdust in the house” since my shop is located adjacent to our finished basement. :)

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nice shop and very nice use of space. You have some very nice tools also….where did you get the old craftsman Bandsaw ? My first one was the same kind…great old bandsaw…still works. I put it in storage to give to my son when he gets out of the military.

Monty, you have a wonderful shop. It housed in it’s own building and you have a lot of nice tools and equipment. It looks great – congratulations.

absolutely, insulation. Looking at your shop, I see metal walls, and metal roof, with studs, but no insulation at all.
I think you’d have to have some sort of air gap, or barrier, ? between the metal roof, and the insulation itself. Someone on here should have some expertise on that.
