My shop is 28’ x 32’ with a ceiling peak of 15’ and 10’ 10” around the edges. I have a 200 amp panel and a half bath. Other folks call my sliding door “my Norm door”, but mine is bigger at 9’ square LOL.

Tom, I’m here to tell you, buddy, that is one serious looking shop. One of the best that I have seen as a matter of fact. It’s a shop full of all sorts of fine tools and equipment, nice cabinets, and a wonderful separate building with spacious room and plenty of head room. Hey, I could go on and on. Congratulations!!! Great work!!!

BTW, I was overtaken momentarily by your shop, welcome to Lumberjocks – it’s a great place for woodworkers.

Thanks for the kind words. I do consider myself very lucky to have what I have, and that is one very understanding wife!

Tom, let me add my welcome as well. This is a nice shop that you have. I would love to have this much ceiling height. It sure makes handling sheet goods and long boards easier when you don’t have to dodge ceiling joists and light fixtures like I do in my shop (I have 92” to the bottom of the joists). It also looks like you have plenty of room to wander around in there. And having a stand alone shop is the way to go in my book. I have occasionally wished I did when I “forget” and fire up my planer before my wife is out of bed. She is not a happy camper if I wake her up early. :)

You have a nice collection of tools to play with. I would enjoy working in a shop like you have.

Thanks for the pictures. It was fun to tour your shop.

Tom, I like the way you have layed out your tools, looks very workable!

Mine is slightly longer, but yours looks like it has more room… :)

Welcome to Lumberjocks, you will enjoy it!

i spent a lot of time working on the design of the shop. I built a scale model of the shop and built scale size tools and such. i tried different layouts to see what worked. Each person has their own design ideas. I have had to rearrange a few tools as I have added tools I did not plan for at first.

Thanks again for your kind words. I really love this hobby and all the great people in it.
