Default Dave's New Shop Some Place in the Nevada Desert

My shop is a 10'x32' construction trailer. I've been using it for about a month now. Of course, these photos were taken just after I started moving my tools in. I have more tools in here now and it is already too small.

I am working on a project at the moment but when I have time I will replace the folding tables with real work benches. In the meantime, I'll make do.

Folding tables work for me. Do you use ear protection in there?

Tables/benches with tools mounted on them that can be folded down against the wall would give you a little more room. I used legs like those on your banquet tables.

I forgot to mention what I do or make in my shop.

Gunsmithing, knife making, holsters, pistol grips, pistol display stands, and whatever else strikes my fancy or I can sell.

Very nice items. I am sure you will run out of space way before you want to, or thought you would.

I already have.

I knew I would run out of space at some point but I didn't think it would be this soon.

Thanks. One is gratified that one's work is acceptable.

Having only limited woodworking instruction (junior high school woodshop class, 1968), the rest being autodidactic, I am often concerned that my work is not up to snuff (in the woodshop class the instructors wouldn't allow us to use most of the power tools).

In school I made a cutting board in the shape of a pig and a knife rack. I found that I like to make things.

My main problem is one of perfection. Having been a drafting/CAD instructor and designer for years, especially using CAD, perfection is attainable. But I missed drawing with a technical pen on mylar or vellum because the personal touch is lost with CAD.

But, when I make something with my own hands, even if not absolutely perfect, I get a great deal of satisfaction from my efforts. It is especially nice to hear from someone who has bought something I made saying that it lived up to or beyond their expectation. But I know they aren't as critical as I am and many items never leave my shop because it doesn't live up to my expectations.
