My shop is just my 2 car garage. I’ve been accumulating tools over the years as I’ve found good deals.

UPDATE 8-23-11

Well, the shop doesn’t look much like this anymore, I need to take some new pictures. I bought a riding lawn mower and ended up building an 8×10 storage shed in my back yard because there was no way I was going to give up that much room in the garage! I moved all of the yard stuff out back which freed up a bunch of space. One of these days I’ll get the shop clean enough to do a video shop tour and I’ll link it here.

Nice shop. Thanx for posting it. We all have that itch to see into other people’s tool shed. ( a little bit of: tool envy, voyeur, nosy, and camaraderie ) Look forward to see what you will create!

This looks like a nice shop in which to work. It appears as if you have organized it well and the layout looks pretty good to me. And I agree with Splinterman that you have a nice set of tools to play with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
