Here are some pix of my shop.  It is 30' x 30'.  Just built this winter.  My 65th birthday present.  Hard to believe all this stuff was in my garage.  Has almost anything I could want.  Could use a new sharpening system.  Pix 5 is my homemade system.

Shavings?  They are where they are supposed to be.  In the compost pile.  I learned as a kid on the ranch from my father you clean up at the end of the day.  That included washing the tracter and greasing it.  I also had a shop teacher that made you clean up at the end of every class.  I always clean up at the end of day.  As a retired helicopter pilot the maint. shops were so clean you could eat off the floor.  A dirty shop is also a safety issue, i.e. fire, tripping over something etc.  OCD I know!

you people and you monster shops (edited out)!!!!  That being said, I am joining Chuck in the crying a river corner of jealousy. 

In all seriousness, that is a amazing looking facility (not a shop) Congratulations on it and your 65th birthday!!!  I am sure you earned one and deserved the other! smiley=beer.gif
