Dave, you have about as much space as I do. I notice your lathe is on wheels as well.
You are certainly well equipped.
My shop is a mess at the moment, tried out my new Arbotech planing disc, wood chips from one end of the shop to another but an awesome tool.

My shop is about the same size as yours and from looking at your photos, I have a lot of cleaning up to do in my shop! You have certainly utilized the space you have very well. Nice shop!

Nice well laid out shop. Good looking bunch of tools. Some of us are so lucky to have good places to work. My shop is only a few feet bigger so I know ya have to put things away to have the room to work. Keep up your great work and posting so we can see an wish.

Thanks guys. I put things away constantly to keep organization. Luckily that comes natural for me. It serves me well and keeps me out of trouble. Building large furniture type projects is when it gets interesting. I also have a area in the detached garage set up that is used for really messy things. Too cold for me to go out there now.

Nice well equipped shop, Dave. I like that index wheel on your lathe!!
it is so clean!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You must have vacuumed for a while to get it in shape for photos if it is like mine!!
I too like to put tools away in their place when done with them.

Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jim

Thanks guys. Organization is what it’s all about. The shop may not always look as clean as in the pictures, but I don’t let it go bad to begin with. Wit a small shop you have to keep at it.

Ivan, I like that answer. LOL.

Jim, I’m laughing cause you commented on the index wheel. Wonder why.
