The main workshop is 17' x 35' plus the lathe room at the back, a very workable size. I have never spoken to a woodworker whose shop is big enough, I am no different. As nice exotic woods get harder to get, I would like to have more room to store materials I may not be able to get in the future.
The first picture is what you see when you first walk in. This is a very busy spot with usually 5 or 6 projects underway at any given time to deal with my short attention span. This allows me to work on something else when I get bored or am waiting for glue or finish to dry on another project.
My main bench is in the foreground (more on that in a future post) which I built over 20 years ago when I had my first single car garage shop - the best and most important tool in my shop.
Lots of clamps and tools I need to do my work.

For now, you can visit my pbase directory which has some shots of some projects from the past: here and some of the instruments I have built here.
Enjoy and keep making shavings....
