    I completely disagree. Look at all of that room! My little workspace is in a 9x12' shed. When I took that photo the arbor on the buffer on the other side of the shed was poking me in the back. In addition to the tiny area that I've carved out for pipe work, the shed also serves as a woodworking space, wood storage, lawn equipment storage, and Christmas decoration storage. I can't really permanently mount any of my bench tools. I have to pull them out, bolt or clamp them to the bench, use them, and then shove them back into their cubby-holes. When I'm working with anything larger than a breadbox I have to take everything outside to the deck of the shed. Good times.

    Thread resurrection!

    Four years later. Moved a lot of stuff inside the house. Still organized.



    That's the handwork station front and center. Benchtop drill press, belt sanders and files somewhat off-camera to the right. Mini-lathe and buffing setup to the left. Shelving and other tooling behind. All the bigger, noisier, messier equipment remains in the old workspace. I can do 70% or so of everything that I need to do right here with the benefit of full heat and a/c. For everything else, I have to traipse outside and brave the elements.

    By the way, that black blob in the lower left corner is the resident shop hound, Mesa, overseeing from her comfy office space.



    Better get back to work or my pay gets docked!

    One day, when I can reclaim my work room, turned storage room back into a work room, I will be able to get my stuffz set up and start doing some woodworking again...

    One day...
    Take care and check six!

    Little known fact: my background is in art and illustration (many moons ago). Looking around the new workspace, I notice that it's laid out more like an art studio than a traditional workshop. Old habits die hard.

    It took me a few years to get zoning approval from the Lady of the Manor. I had to submit very detailed design plans as well as proposals for debris management and noise reduction. I still get the occasional citation.
