New Woodshop

Project by JimmyC72 posted 04-25-2011 12:44 AM 5656 views 4 times favorited 12 comments Add to Favorites Watch

After several years of working out of my basement and my wife getting tired of the sawdust in the laundry, it was decided that I needed to relocate the shop. My biggest concerns were light and ceiling height, these because I didn’t have them in the basement. Anyway, i came up with a 16×24 design with a 4 foot patio and plenty of light.

Wow, it’s beautiful… You’re giving me the hunger to go and build one of my own. Great job!

Very nice, I was planning something similar but I am having a terrible time with permits. I live near the water and the local conservation authority doesn’t play nice

The shop is working out great. Every time I walk into it, I think of the time I spent planning and then building. There is only one thing I would have done differently and that is to have made it a little longer. Maybe 30’-32’.
If anyone out there is going to build one, go a little bigger than you had planned. But still, it is nice to go out and just try different techniques and ideas.

Hi Jim;

Very nice shop.

I remember when when my tools and I got kicked out of the basement. LOL
