There are times when I could just explode from the lack of room and other times I am as happy as a clam and feel truely blessed with what I have to do all the work I love to do here.

i've just divided my garage in half, so my new (first) shop is basically 19 X 9 feet. i can barely get a 4X8 sheet through the door. But i stand in there and look around and "grateful" is the only word. i just love the smell of the place. i'm now into my first project and i wake up every morning thinking of what i might be able to get done today. i'm not retired yet, so the "day job" continues to demand time. i'm still mostly building jigs to help with yet-to-be-determined projects. but even that process is filled with a wonderful anticipation.

thanks for sharing your shop with us.

Mid December, I am moving into a new home and I was able to eek out 450 Sq Ft (With a 9' ceiling!) of space in the footprint. Heat, Light, Windows, HVAC, My Own Sink, Man Door to Outside, Back Up Area Right at the Door for loading and unloading...

Not bragging, just grateful that often things change for the better. I can now build things bigger than jewelry boxes!

Blue Skies!

I can only use my garage shop from April to October as it is unheated in Alberta and I have frost the rest of the year. So every year it is take all freezable stuff indoors to the basement and then I carve at the dining room table in the winter when my wife doesn't have an art project on it LOL

When I buy(or build) my house, that will not be a problem

Great shop and thanks for sharing.
