Workshop Information

Location
Canada
13' x 21' Workshop
Our house was built in 1930, not sure when the shop was built. It sits on the site of a blacksmith shop, which was operational until 1929 from what I was told by a previous owner. The photo of the Blacksmith is George Evans, in his shop, which is where my shop now stands.
We bought our house in March 2016, and I started on the workshop in October 2016. So far I built two work benches, installed the wood stove, and built overhead wood storage/eventually drying racks.
Next shop projects include a roll out table saw, and barn doors with windows instead of the tin garage door, as there is no man-door.

Great shop … I love the stove. Welcome to LumberJocks!

Thanks for the welcome Ron! It's a hunting/ice fishing stove, but it's the perfect size to heat my small space.

It's a nice space and a good place to build or chill!

I had a very similar setup in Colorado that doubled as my skinning shed for trapping. The woodstove made for a wonderful place to sit and ponder life and swap stories.

Lately since it started snowing I've been sitting at the wood stove and whittling. Your shop sounds like it was great would love to see photos
