Great shop, Tom. I bet you don’t have that green grass this time of year! This is from a 45 year transplant from Des Moines, Ia. I like the big wheels on your bench. How often do you let that car in there? bbqKing.

Tom, you have a nice shop space in which to work. And I love the headroom that you have in there. This type of space makes it easy to swing full sheets of plywood without any problems. You have organized it well.

I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks guys… The only reason it looks like a big space is because I don’t have as much stuff as all of you…<g>. I moved my shop from my garage to here last summer. The drive from Naperville takes about 30 min. and it allows me to be more focused with less distractions while in the shop.
Scott, I still knock out a light now and then with plywood and long stock.
BBQ, So true about the snow…, the outside pick was from October.

Looks good to me, I love the light the white walls give off, I didn’t do that and it was a mistake!

Tom that’s a great shop with a lot of room. I could probably put 3 of my shops in there and always loved the idea of having a separate building for a shop. It’s a real nice building as well.
