Updating my shop pics to new shop 6 in AZ. A Shed Shop.8ft by 16ft I sold off most of the tools from PA for the move in 2019 and get to start almost new in 2020. I purchased another Shopsmith after selling my old one., and was very fortunate with my purchase. New workbench in process. condensed space but an open door and air plan rather than always indoor or basement as before. So I left my past write up to tell the saga of change. I have a blog about moving the shop and here are new photos.








This is my one car garage workshop #5. I am in house number 4, two have been since my wife as a Presbyterian minister and two we owned before this. I have been in small basements at first with enough space to enjoy making adirondack chairs but having to take the arms off to go back out the side door to put the arms back on to finish them. I bought the used Shopsmith for that basement shop 11×20. The third home had my first garage,cold floor, bugs on finishes, new way to heat not being indoors, and after I retired I was able to take it down and bought a modular shed 24 by 28 with wood floor and high ceiling.

Always nice to see another ShopSmith user. I just did the 520 rail and fence upgrade to my 510 and would highly recommend it.

Looks like you've got all the tools anyone could need and are organized for maximum utilization. I admire you moving four times and having to re-set up your shop with each move. I've thought about moving since the kids have grown and we have far more room than we either need or use, but the thought of having to move my shop and reorganize makes me stay where I am.

Looks like you have a nice space there for your shop. And I agree the open doors are wonderful. When the weather is nice I open up the overhead and man door getting a nice cross breeze.
