Of course I wish it was bigger but must make do with what I have. I will be building my router table, a drill press table and a crosscut sled within the next few weeks. The courses I am giving start next Saturday morning. Next summer I will paint the floor, I already bought the paint but ran out of time. I also need to change some light fixtures that I already have, some of the existing ones are humming. Note the 2 small workbenches I bought for the classes.

It's neat, it's clean, so obviously you have not started working in it yet .

Nice shop Dan, glad you swept up the sawdust before you took the pictures What classes are you teaching - going to guess it's woodworking-related?

Thanks guys,

Theo, I have done some limited work but I cleaned before pictures and to have it clean for next Saturday when I start giving fine woodworking courses. I do however believe a clean shop is a safer shop and I am very organized, everything has a place so I don't have to look for it.
Rick, the garage is 18.5' x 24'. Notice I left a passage from the front door to the back door. That door on the wall in the middle is access to the house. Another reason for the metal cabinets to be lined up is to help keep the noise away from the house.
Vince, Yes fine woodworking for beginners and intermediates.

Very nice Dan. I like that long work bench.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Looks good!
Isn't it amazing how much space we need? My woodworking shop is 1/2 of my garage so it's 12x27 and I thought it would be huge...it's not. Looks like you're in the same situation, Dan.
How many students do you have per class?
