Finally got some pictures of my shop after I cleaned it up a little bit. Also threw the pictures of it messy back in. Why not? I just have a small workshop in my garage. It’s nothing fancy but I make do with it. My wife and I love spending time together working on wood projects. We’re not experts by any means but we are learning as we go and loving every minute of it.

Could only upload 6 so here’s the last one

looks to be a pretty nice work space to me.a lot of guys will tease you if your shop is too clean but i agree with you,i like to keep my shop organized and clean as i can,for one a messy shop just slows you down trying to find what you need.youve come to a great place hope you enjoy it here,welcome to lumber jocks.

I reckon the joke is on me. :) I really did think the shop was yours. I knew that your saying that all off that went into that shed was a joke. However, I’ve been in a number of shops that are even bigger than that so a big shop is not that unusual.

Anyways, I’m glad that you have joined Lumberjocks. Welcome aboard.

I still say it’s a fantastic shop. ;)

I even wrote that it was not really my shop at the end of it. It was just a joke until I got my pictures. Sheesh
I’ll make sure not to post any more jokes.

Nice Shop, It really does look roomy…for the record, I did think the first post was funny! If you are going to get more tools the craftsman has to go though!!! I laugh at the thought of a big snowblower on a tractor….my walk behind one it seems as if the snow always goes in my face, no matter what direction I go….a big one on a tractor while more efficient has to be worse! Thanks for showing the shop!!!

Thanks. It’s roomy enough for me although it seems to get smaller and smaller as I go.

I had a walk behind type for a couple years. Up here in Maine we get a lot of snow and my driveway is kinda big. The worst thing is I get a HUGE amount of snow drift across my driveway because the wind usually comes from the North and there is nothing North of me to block the wind. Just a big open field. The walk behind blower would just crawl right up the drifted snow because it packs so tight. The tractor has enough weight to it so it can get under the drift and throw it. That machine throws the snow about 25 feet so if I don’t throw it into the wind it’s ok. But the wind does sometimes swirl a bit covering me in it from head to toe. Good thing I wear thick heavy wool. The walk behind would take me over 2 hours to do my driveway. With this one I can do mine and a few neighbor’s driveways in that time.

I’m gonna have a lighting problem in my new big shop about 48’x36’ (?). what’s the reflective stuff you are using on the ceiling, and how much do you think it helps? Can anyone else point me in the right direction, for good lighting ideas? Thanks

It’s called radiant barrier. It’s supposed to help keep the heat in. That’s what I use it for. I suppose it does reflect the light pretty well too. I got it from Amazon. It’s not the type that has like bubble wrap stuff in it. It’s basically like really thick aluminum foil. I just stapled it to the ceiling. I can’t really say how well it works for insulation as the whole garage is insulated pretty well and it stays 10 to 20 degrees warmer in there than outside when the heat is off. That is of course if it doesn’t sit unheated for too long.

Thank you sir, just might try it. The previous owner did a bad job of covering the ceiling and some of the “stuff” is falling off. So just might re-staple and add your “really thick aluminum foil”. Sounds like a good way to fix an ugly problem. Again Thanks
