Just getting started. Will be 20 x 24 which is a bit smaller than my last shop that was 25 x 26. I will actually have more usable space since there will not be a post in the middle and I am going to heat and cool it with a mini split instead of a wood stove and window ac unit.

What kind of insulation do you have installed there? I have a shed very similar with no insulation. Can get brutal in the winter.

I thought I'd posted a picture of my small shop, but I don't see it, so I guess I didn't, I'll post a couple now. The shop is 1/2 of a 2-car garage (but I have wood and yard equipment in the other side, but no woodworking tools. I have both more tools than ever, AND more space. I guess I should have cleaned this sucker up a lot sooner.

12' x 32'; I wish I had gotten one more in the 16' x 48' range to have a little more space; but, it looked huge to me when I saw it empty!

I started with a workbench and a table saw and over the years I filled my garage with tools as I needed them. A lot of stuff is on wheels because I share my shop with a car.

The yellow paint started when I didn’t have money for tools or projects but I could afford paint. I wanted to paint my workbench because I kept losing small stuff in the grain of the wood. I came across a sale on a gallon of Safety Yellow, oil-based paint. The stuff painted decades ago still looks as good as new paint.

The speakers are an open baffle design (speakers on a board). I recycled old speakers and my first good stereo, I discovered they sound great in the garage. The TV is dedicated to a slideshow of pictures I took at car shows.

I like bright colors too. I can never find anything when all the colors blend together.

Technically, this could be considered my last shop. It consisted of a $50 portable workbench and a few, like in damned few tools. I was replacing several wall insert panels on my boat while settling in temporarily in eastern Tennessee in the Little Tennessee River, also known as Tellico Lake. We were passing through and exploring. Originally planned to be there for a month and stayed a year. Absolutely beautiful place about 1 hour drive by car to the Great Smoky Mountains.

Managing a small work space requires constant changes to get things right.

Paul - nice video.
Goes to prove that if you want to do something bad enough, you can make it work.
