Way to organize, looks good. Don't feel bad about the size of the shop, I've been a woodworker for along time, and I'm in the same situation as you are and still park vehicles in it.

Thank you Woodchuck1957!

It was a mess until I just cleaned it up last night. I'm in the middle of building the router table in the pictures. I'm making a smaller cabinet than most that you see on Lumberjocks. I'm trying to conserve space. I'll post some pic's when I finish it. Everything I have is on wheel's. I roll everything to one side of the garage so I can do as you do…. put my vehicle in there when we have a threat of bad weather.

I great start. When are you going to finish. LOL

It's nice to have a workshop. My wife tells me I need one twice as big as mine is now and it's 25' X 55'.

Tony, you have a nicely organized shop. It appears as if you have utilized just about all the available space that you can. I like the way you have used the dead space over the door for storage. That is a good idea. You have a nice set of tools to play with as well. There are three things that we, as woodworkers never have enough of- tools, clamps and space. I am in total agreement with Karson. It seems that, especially with space, we never have enough irrespective of the size of our individual shops. You have done a good job with the space that you have available.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Very nice shop. I love garage shops because of being able to open up the garage door and letting in the fresh air and daylight. And down in Florida it must be especially nice.

Ha-Ha !!! Blackie, you saw my sign!!!!
I put that sign up for my next door neighbor! She would call me almost every day asking for something, even lawn and garden tools! I had to draw the line when she started returning my stuff broken!!! I found that sign when I was down in Daytona. I just had to buy it! LOL… now no one asks me for anything! I'm happy! I hate lending my tools out!!!

Hi AJ,
Thanks for the "Wow!" And Yes I did build the router table. I use some old cabinet doors and some other scrap wood I had laying around the shop. I just got around to putting some knobs on the draws and the door. I have a Triton router in the cabinet. If you take a look at my projects here on LJ's you will get a better look at the router table and some of the other things I have made.
I hope to see more of your projects here on LJ's! Happy woodworking and please make sure you read up on how to use tools and power tools saftly.
And while I'm here I'll make you my buddy!
See you around the LJ's pages!

Your right, I never let anyone borrow my tools! I'm worried they will break my tools, they could buy the tool that they want to borrow. Because if they break it, then they have to buy me one. That's the way it works with me!

Before I moved into my new shop I wood've loved to have this shop. My first shop was only a one car garage. I was constantly shuffling tools to accomplish something. Everything had to be on wheels.

So I'm giving your shop a once over before I see it in person and give it a twice over. LOL
I like how your cabinets have no doors so everything is very easy to see. I opted to keep doors on mine when I utilized our old kitchen cabinets. It may keep dust off a lot of things but I like the open look. Now I'm thinking again.
p.s. Keep it clean before I get there or I will report you to OSHA.

Oh No No not OSHA!! I'll make sure it's all cleaned up for your inspection Dave! :)
Dave, I do more than just woodworking in my shop. Sometimes I'll need to weld something or fix something; so you may see some things that just don't belong in there due to the lack of space. This is our first house with no basement. or separate outdoor shop. Below is a photo of the shop I built in Franklin MA. It was my dream shop but unfortunately we had to move; job related. I had to sell all my heavy tools, too many to move. I had this shop all set up with a vac system and all stationary tools. Now I'm pushing tool around on wheels in a smaller space but I'm not complaining because I'm happy with what I have….seeing I'm much older now and doing much less. I mostly putter around to keep busy and enjoy retirement.
Looking forward to our visit!
Cheers!
Tony

Hey Tony, you lucky guy. I only have 1/2 of the garage. My wife claims the other half for her longarm quilting machine.
