Gabriel, I have often said that any shop is a good shop. With a RAS you have a nice start on your shop and having a separate finishing area is a luxury that most of us would enjoy having. When you get a chance or as your shop grows how about posting some pictures? Visual tours of other shops are a nice part of this group (especially for those of us who are confessed shop addicts!!).
Even though I now have my dream shop in the Upper Peninsula, I still fondly remember my start, on the dining room table, with hand tools, in a small one bedroom apartment. Keep at it and keep us posted.
