Well, I have a small shop which occupies roughly the space of 1+ cars in my garage. Late in life I realized I had to prioritize “the shop” as a project of it’s own. So, I rented a POD and removed everything from the garage, textured and painted the walls, installed sport court flooring and bought some storage cabinets. With the help of my wife’s friend, I (we) were selective about what moved back into the garage and how it was organized. Slowly I regained control of the garage/shop and started to grow my collection of woodworking tools.

Everything is on casters so I can move my workbench and power tools around as needed, or pack it tight. I’m continuously looking for new ideas to make it all more efficient. Am also thinking more seriously every day about building a real shop but this Wood Shop V1.0 is serving it’s purpose for now.

Just uploaded a quick photo of the shop, which is actually the same as my garage. There’s barely room enough to park one car inside. Not unlike 97% of all of you, one day I’d like to find a place with a much larger garage or a dedicated workshop.

I retired last year, somewhat related to a minor medical issue that decision a LOT easier than prior years. I spent the next ~6 months figuring out this retirement gig and decided to pursue woodworking more passionately.
