My on going shop build started as a simple pole barn but has morphed in to something else. Blew through my budget before putting siding on so I decided to mill my own siding from trees on my property. 24'x 24'
I've got a small workshop with a few necessary tools but I've been turning out projects for 30 years or so. Large projects I just bring the saw horses outside and a piece of 3/4 inch plywood with a 12 inch piece of laminated beam screwed to the bottom side of it for support and work on my...

Converted my 1.5 car garage to a GarShop - a bit small but this is what I have and with this I have to win… made it work - still want to get a Sawstop and a band saw if I can make the room - but this will require a real dust collection too… so not yet…Still new at this but made a walnut desk and...
The umbrella kept getting caught by the wind and breaking my glass tops on our patio table, so I made one out of a Maple tree we cut down a few years ago. I left the edges raw, just how Gordon Ramsey likes it.
My cramped, dusty (at least it's heated) shop that doubles a a garage and lumber storage. It occupies 2 1-1/2 car bays of a 4-car garage, so at least things are close together and I can separate rough from finish work. No apologies - it's a working shop and it suits me well. Of course we all...
I just work out of my 1.5 car garage, with the following equipment: Sawstop contractor saw Porter Cable miter saw Dewalt 12" jointer Jet bandsaw Delta DJ 15 jointer (currently under restoration) Router table and a few routers Random other hand and power tools
Clean 40×40 pad. Looking to build a carriage house. General plans are barn/workshop. Due to various changes. No carriage house. Materials coming for more conventional barn style.
First image of new shop build before improvements are made. Added a wall mounted a/c unit and ran electrical.
My Workshop is basically any outddors / backwoods camp that I can set up and working roudn a fire. Often dresed up in Viking or Saxon clothes for re-enactment. I like Vintage and historical projects. I also like working with groups.
Our workshop is currently a 400sf detached structure from the house, complete with insulated/heated paint storage area and ventilation fan. Soon we'll be moving and I'll have to downsize slightly to fit everything into a 2 car garage.
Two car garage plus storage room behind, 8'x20' shed, & 20' covered outdoor lumber rack. Standard garage door converted to sliding barn door style- highly recommended- this is the third one that I've done. Work table outside on the driveway & sometimes horses set up. Saw can rip 17' and 4×8...
My workshop starts out when I cut down a tree and haul it to my sawmill. It is a Norwood LM29v. The mill is housed in a two story pole barn that is 12'x24' long. My wife helped me with the concrete work. The 2nd story is a drying kiln for the lumber I mill. The actual workshop is a two room...
Just adding images as shop projects are finished and the shop gets more organized! I have a fake 3-car garage… A 2 car door and what they call a "tandem" on one side. The back portion is the primary location of my tools and shop space - So a one-car garage space that spills over. Major power...
I have a lot of tools so I'll list the few I don't have . Lathe , CNC , large Drum sander. But most of my tools are not top of the line stuff. I got some from auction and building my tools over the last 13yrs. I did build my own bench in the Scandinavian style from Rob Cosman. And a Cosman vice.
My workshop is my garage with bare bones essential tools for small projects and minor repairs around the house. I am building my tool collection and have had success in some projects. Ive found the best tool is perseverance and making mistakes.
Welcome to my happy place. We have a detached, oversized double garage. The car gets one side and the shop gets the remainder - about 425 sq feet. I had been sourcing used tools for years with the hope of one day having a shop. I had a gas line roughed into the garage about 15 years ago and 4...
My shop size is 30×30 feet. It is a recent build and I am trying to figure out the layout, unfortunately I am having to share the space with the storage of construction materials that I am using to complete the construction of an apartment. Presently the only tools I have in the shop are my...
I'm proud of my shop setup! 1. Main work place - Yes, glass top table 2. Secondary work place - When it's not too hot or rainy 3. Tool cabinet - aka the cabinet that is no longer used/missing some screws 4. Nice boxes for wood stock - Ikea/Amazon brand This may sound like a joke to you but...
Just a nice garage with benefits.

My workshop is a converted 3 car garage. It is a work in progress, but getting there slowly. Dimensions are 34' x 26'. It is heated and cooled so I can work year round. I also have a dehumidifier. I have 4" of foam board/synthetic stucco on the exterior and 6" of insulation in the exterior...
My shop is an expanded 2-car garage with a small attached shed housing the dust collector and air compressor, which are both piped through the wall. The shop itself is 631sq.ft. which is my largest of the three I've built, but it's shrinking rapidly. I keep it workable by having everything...
I made pine Shaker chimney cupboards to finish off my apartment workshop. The originals are from Mt. Lebanon, circa 1820s. They allowed me to build a tool rack without having to screw it into the wall. I might later install a roller blind or curtain to cover the back area but this will be the...
I have a garage workshop, consisting of Craftsman 315-series table saw, Cman 14" band saw, and other assorted floor-mounted tools like belt grinder/sander, drill press, mini lathe, planer, along with the obligatory variety of sanders and hand tools, etc. Crowded, so most everything is on wheels...
20×24 building in the woods near my home. I have a 16' ceiling. Dust collection is outside in a separate closet. Main table saw, Powermatic. 16' work bench along one wall made from a salvaged bowling alley. Left the lane markers in place. Back covered deck 12'x20' for outside sanding and other jobs.
Just starting to build/outfit my woodshop. It's a 2-1/2 car garage dedicated to woodworking, not automobiles. I am currently working on a miter station with lots of drawers for storage. Building my, first-ever, cabinets for this space. This is so much fun!!!
My shop prior to restoration. A "drive-through" barn. It was leaning a few degrees to the left: During restoration. First, I built the red metal 2-story shed (on the extreme left) on top of an existing ice-house foundation for storage. Then I started working on the barn/shop: Phase one...
I'm very fortunate to have been able to piece this shop together over the years. I took up woodworking as a hobby and bought my first table saw at Home Depot in 2009. It was a great saw. I just sold it last month for about what I paid for it new to help pay for the Jet 3hp table saw with 50"...
Early Spring 2021, I had a detached building put up in my back yard to be used as a dedicated wood shop. It is a big, no huge, upgrade from our 2-car attached, 3-season garage. The shop building is a square, 26'x26', 676 square feet (that seemed really large right before I moved in). It is...
This is it! 11' X 17' - 1924 carriage house. So many tools that you can't get a cigarette paper between them. With everything pushed to the walls I get a 60" X 96" area of clear floor. It has been amazing to see some of the larger projects that have been built in this space. When I meet a new...
I will be building a new shop in my 15'x21' garage this spring and will be blogging every stage of the construction. I'm currently in the planning phase and the whole process is exciting. Once things warm up and thaw out in the spring I will begin construction. A new floor will be poured, new...
Peek into my shop from the recent past, I will eventually update the photos. Here also, is a pic of a set of Adirondack table and chairs that I made.
