Workshop Information

Location
United States
We built this stand-alone woodshop in 2007 and have continued to improve it and add more tools and toys!
I don't hunt and fish and rarely do I get to golf these days. I have included some fotos of my shop.
One of the things we did that has worked out so well was installing floor electric outlets. (both 110 and 220)
The vac system, table saw and jointer are 220V. All of the tools in the shop are on a remote controlled vac system.

The assembly table was originally a 10 person dining table I made out of red oak. 4' 8" x 8" 8". I inset the Kreg table clamp and mounted the Kreg drilling Jig and Leigh dovetailer. Having a big table to work on has been a life saver on many of my projects.

As I look at other workshops, I keep coming up with ways to improve this one. All it takes is time, effort and money, right?

Thanks for the tour. Looks like you got a bunch of tools and a good layout from what I can see.

It looks like you have a really nice shop space in which to work. I like the collection of hand tools that you have and the clamp rack looks really interesting. It looks as if your shop is well organized and you have plenty of room in which to work.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed looking at your shop.

I sincerely appreciate the comments on my shop. After years of working in a garage, having this shop is wonderful.

I thought it would be big enough-how foolish! It is 20×40 with a 14' crown. We did design it with a 3 foot wide mezzanine that runs down both sides. Great for additional storage. I guess a shop is never really finished, and this one is no exception. I wish it were wider and longer. However, it is filled with all of the tools and toys to leave me no excuses when a project ends up looking like an unmade bed!

I will post additional fotos of the interior tomorrow.

Thanks again

Very well organized. Nice color scheme. Awesome assembly table.

I have never gotten peg board to work for me, but I like what you have done with it.

Thanks for posting.

Wow! Great shop and fantastic setting. Gives us all something to strive for or dream about. I hope mine is half as nice when I get it done. Thanks for sharing you shop with us, Steve in Oregon
