Default TheOak Dudes Shed/Workshop

Compared to many of you guys shops, this is a rather compact space to work in.
I built the shed myself having never done it before
Has actually plenty of room so long as I dont have 2 ton of french oak sitting in 1 side.
Would dearly love to have the space I have seen in many of your uploads. Very jealous.
But hey thats what I have to work with.
Though not huge is very functional and I manage so long as I am disciplined about clean and clear policy and not doing too many projects at one time.
thanks for looking

Do you drink while working in your shop?
Take care,
Peter.

Nice shop Paul. Don't worry too much about the size... the more room you have, the more you (me, at least) fill it up with stuff you won't ever use!!

Glad to see you are making it work for you Paul.............I'm sure that some of us are envious of all of that what looks to be oak stacked in your shop... I know that I am.

Paul you have more tools per square inch of any shop I've ever seen. As long as it works for you, great shop.

Default Thanks guys

For the record, NO I DO NOT drink whilst working, what made you think that I did. After hours taking some photos. I also like to spend sone time in there when not operating power tools, listen to music etc, did you notice the rather large studio monitors???? Nice of you to comment on shop though eh???
Cheers for the other more positive posts. I dont have the option of more space, this is what I have to work with so I have to make the best of it. Have to be rather disciplined and cannot do too many things at once but I love it. Sound system is unbelievable.
thanks

Paul, Everyone in this forum probably wishes for more space, but truth be known you have much more than many others. When you see a nice completed project, nobody is going to have any comments about the size of the shop where it was made - their comments will be about the quality of what comes out of your shop. It looks very well organized to me. My shop rule is simple: A place for everything & everything in its place.
Often it takes me hours to reorganize things after a lengthy project, but that way I know right where to go to get the needed tool, etc. when the next project is on. OPG3

Hi

I like it, now that's a real man cave it's makes me recall my grandfathers shop, one man shop and that's all...I recall standing on the work bench using one of his OLD hand scroll saws..cutting out a air plane from some 1/4" thick plywood.. LOL and the smell of all the great woods in the shop ... it was my job to pickup all the cut offs and put them in the 55 gal.drum fire place .. boy I could get that thing to turn cherry red, I just recall him saying Bobby did you see that block of Oak wood about 3" long by 4" , I said yes it's in the fire box... "he said ,O well...I will make one more," great guy...
