I have almost my entire basement, but this is my main area.

Having a turntable to listen to vinyl is a must.

I just bought this lake house on Jackson lake in Georgia.   I'm in the process of setting my boathouse/shop up. I'm painting the walls,floor and all kinds of cool things will go inside.  [usa.gif]

Beautiful and effective shops above.  BillW, if I had yours, Mrs. Wally says it would be a mess in no time.

The 1st pic shows my usual mess.  

The 2nd pic is a 90 degree panorama.  Can anyone find my 35A?  It's gone missing.  You ought to see the other 270 degrees.

My work "shed" is small but it gets the job done. Also limits me to the amount of motors I can have which is a good thing to a point.

This is my 670 square feet of paradise, or as my ol lady calls it "the boat house". I am embarrased to show it in this condition but this is its current state. The engine racks are in the basement and just afford me some extra storage..............Rob

I have seen the rest of Chuck's shop, and it's pretty much 400 square feet more of exactly what you see in his photo submission!!  Drawers & Doors floor to ceiling with "treasure" inside & behind them!

Thanks sir.

I guess I will have to stand behind my entries shared in the Current Projects section as to what a "Working Shop" entails.
