    11 x 22 packed full of goodness

    well, here it is in all its glory! LOL

    just kidding, its a small 11' x 22' shop built onto the back of our garage with a sloped roof. its small but i have to make do with what i have.
    i would like to put up a metal shed in the back yard right next to it or build some kind of lean-to just for a place to store my lumber. there is
    a rack in the shop but i want to get the wood setup vertically instead of horizontally like it is now. plus it would free up some space so i could
    move some machines out against that wall.

    i am new to woodworking and i have been slowly gathering machines and there isnt much more that
    i really need so im looking forward to getting things done so i can start having some fun!

    anyways, here are a few pics of the shop and my machines.

    Some would say it looks too clean, I think it looks great. Thanks for the tour!

    I started in a 10 x 24 so I know how you feel. You have a great start there.

    tom, i havent really built much of anything as of yet. was slowly getting machines as money would allow plus its been a wicked hot summer and
    i just havent had any interest in getting out there to do anything, i was going to put in an a/c unit in the wall but since its getting late in the year now
    and its starting to cool down i will save that money and use it to get that electrician over and wire in my air compressor and my heater.

    being new to all this im not sure what i will start out with doing first? maybe start out easy with some chess, cribbage and cuttings boards as xmas gifts.
    i joined a local club and everyone has been so nice i look forward to meeting all of them and learning things as i go. one nice thing i can say is that the
    woodworking community is a helpful bunch of people!

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    The place looks great. Setting up shop is all part of the fun.

    Welcome aboard, Kevin. Great-looking shop. Looks like you have all the major food groups covered (except the lathe, as Don pointed out). I have the same drill press, and like it a lot. (I need to re-tweak my laser, though.)

    Now the fun really begins.
