    My weekend retreat (don't laugh)

    We're in a rental house so I'm limited in what I can do, but when we get our own place the shop will be much better.

    This is from the front, small but useful.

    Homemade miter saw stand from scrap lumber. Maybe overkill for a 10 inch saw but it's SOLID.

    Hi Bill - nice looking shop! I've been the rental route and I know what a pain it can be. Hang in there!

    Bill, Nice shop. It looks like you have a bit of room to move around in there. Have fun in your playroom!

    No laughing here. Looks like a fine retreat to me. Any shop is better than no shop, and I'm envious of all your extra room to move around.

    Many here would love that open and airy space. You've got the basics setup very well and look to be enjoying it. That is more important than a packed shop or the color of your tools in my book. Have fun. There's time. Enjoy the moment. Wow . . . that was a very philosophical moment for me ;-)

    Nothing wrong with that shop! We all have to do with what we have.
