The wife and I live in a smaller home with a smaller back yard I have a 5×8 cedar shed I built to house my obsession this small space though restricting has its benefits its easy to keep warm and requires little cleaning(as it is always a mess) . I’ve got a 4×4 floor space with two benches on either side the limited space and no money for fancy tools has helped to build my hand skills so there are other benefits to being poor-ish

Norwood, I have seen some really nice pieces come from smaller shops. I agree with Splinterman’s comment about the size of a shop. A lathe is a perfect tool for a shop like you have. It has a relatively small footprint and you can “turn” out some really nice pieces on it. That is one tool that I wish I had in my shop.

By the way, if you get the opportunity, take a look at Dilo's shop. Your shop is about the same size as his and he produces some wonderful pieces of furniture. The type and quality of work that can be done in smaller sized shops never ceases to amaze me.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
