You wanna see my shop, I show you my shop. My work area is in the driveway in front of my 8x10 storage shed. There is a limited amount of space in the shed to use my drill press and some hand tools, but right now that space is taken up by my lathe, which I didn't have when I took this photo. I could turn things in there, but I'd be up to my knees in shavings in no time. My next house is going to have a garage.

way to go ... a good solution to an obvious problem. Bummer for you when it rains, though (you probably already noticed that, huh  Smiley )

I was looking at building that size and just a touch larger, trying to think if I could work in one or not.  I guess if there was noting else other than the absolute necessities then I might make it.  But I think if you have good enough weather then you've got the better idea.

Looks like the costco shed my stepdad got for about $900.  Good size and features. I could never fit my tool obsession in there... come to think of it I can't fit it in my garage Shocked

Since sanding is such a critical part of woodworking I prefer a nice warm sunny day to do it outside. Nothing wrong with your setup. It's making do with what one's got.

Eh...why not put the lathe in the livingroom? Grin  I had a drill press on the kitchen table for a year.  My wife is a saint.

I'm waiting for it to warm up before I go out in the garage to turn.  It only hit about 70° today.

I hate you!!  Wink  It's going up to 3º tomorrow, which is about 36 American degrees, so I'll get my circular saw out and cut a couple of pieces for a project I'm doing in one of the spare bedrooms. I think my son and I may have talked my wife into letting me use the spare bedroom in the front of the basement as a limited tool shop. It's not as if we need three spare bedrooms after all. The kids can sleep on the couch if they have to visit, or go sleep at their brother's.

I had a picture of the shelving units and workbench inside the shed, but I can't find it. It was called 'marvellously compact' by a friend of mine.

Roger, nice work area! You don't need a big shop, although elbow room is nice.

But the 3 degrees?  Smiley

Jim and I don't live too far apart and he was being too kind for our friends in the frigid North. My thermometer shows an outside temp of 73 right now. Supposed to get to 79.

Some parts of the country, or continent, have three months of bitter winter. We have three months of KILN temps but 9 months of bliss! Roll Eyes

Roger,
Good use of space, I know the feeling I got a 8 x 10 part of my basement that is my shop you want to talk full.  Grin
