Default My shop I.E. where I go to work every day

I have never started a thread about my shop before any where. I guess I never thought people wanted to see it but my lumber customers seem to like it a lot so I thought why not share a few pics here. This is the exterior view during the addition of the lumber room.

Here are a few interiors, please excuse the mess but I do actually work in here. Come to think of it, I don't think it has ever been completely swept out. I will add a few more pics as I get some more space cleared

Very nice Randy. I like all the dust collection going overhead. My son in law has a remodeling bussiness and always talks about wanting to start cabinet making. He likes just woodworking more than redoing other peoples mistakes as He calls it, I can't say I blame Him

K.I.S.S.- Keep It Super Simple

Don't fix it if it Ain't broken

Thank you Warren. I put the dust tubes up in the air to save on floor space. Tell your son in law that woodworking is great and has been very good to me, but if he has a good business in repair & remodeling, don't give it up. People always need something fixed or spruced up, they can't always afford to build new. It took me a long time to build up a client base that can afford to keep me working all the time and I still sometimes hit a dry patch ( although right now they are trying to work me to death). Tell him to start out by doing the cabinet work on his next remodel all in house with out subbing the case work. That is how many of my lumber customers got into the woodworking end of construction, and many of them moved into case & cabinetry full time and don't do much repair work anymore.
Regards Randy

Randy, Really nice shop and what a place to go to everyday. I rough framed custom homes and additions all my life and it has taken its toll on my body. At 65 yrs. old I have a small woodshop (24'x24') to do small projects and crafts. Now I build bookcases, shelves. vegitable bins, bread boxes etc. for the craft showes. I guess once the sawdust gets in your blood you can never stop (do not want to)and keep on going till the end. My uncle was a carpenter and mason and worked till he dropped 100 yrs. old. Once again excellent shop good luck and God Bless zarpman Melbourne, Fl.

Nice shop. Love the set up. Looks like a great big addition going up!! I have been working on my own shop for about a year. I do not plan on doing anything other than make boxes. Your thread gives me incentive to show off my shop. Thanks!!

Thanks folks I love my shop and can't imagine going anywhere else or doing anything different with my life. I wish all of you good luck in your own shops and can't wait to see them here on the board. I'll post more pics when I can.
Thanks again Randy
