Very nice shop Laney, I'm impressed. My professional shop is sweet, but my personal shop is embarrassing.I should be out there cleaning it now, but there is no fun or money in it for me....lol

Hi Laney, 10'x 16' x 8'. Sheer unadulterated luxury, you lucky devil. My shop is much lil'ler (is that a word ?) than yours. She is only 8' x 15' x  7' 2", she is small but beautifully utilitarian, she smells wonderful and when I step into her, I feel  like I have come home. I have 2 x 5' benches  separated by, but joined together with a shorter 24" wide chopsaw/router table bench and a spare 5' wheel out  bench, in case I feel like working outside (British weather permitting). I have most of the major shop machines, although they are scaled down in size. Sadly, fine furniture making is not my bag  at this moment in time, but I have made some garden furniture, including Steve Ramseys garden bench. I would describe myself as an enthusiastic amateur wood butcher. With an ambition to improve. Seriously though, Laney I watch and rewatch  all of your  videos, and I would like to thank you for all the help that you have given me. Cheerio me deario.........
