I like to look at what others have done with their work space. My experience in a shop, ( before woodworking I was a drag racer with a shop fiull of entirely different tools – talk about a complete turn around ) anyway, it seems the more room you have.. the more “stuff” you collect. Now this does not mean I would not like to have double my shop space, a dedicated “clean” room, etc.. but the biggest thing I look for is good use of space and functional jigs, etc…
Building a nice shop jig, storage solution, or tool is as satisfying for me as building a nice piece of furniture for someone else.
When I think about making changes or improvements in my shop, I search out someone who has a similar size shop and look at what they have done and see if I can make it work for me.

As far as support from my spouse.. well.. when it comes to anything in my life, including my woodworking I don’t think I could find a better person to support me.. my wife is amazing.

Would I like a 40’ x 60’ two story shop with all the bells and whistles.. HELL YA .. but.. then what would I yearn for every day .. a bigger shop with more gooder tools and …?
