We want to both hear about and see pictures of your shop. All shops are interesting, so even if you think your shop is too small, please tell us about it. I have “stolen” many ideas for my woodworking shop from others and some of the best ideas have come from those who are “space challenged”.
There is no one correct way to organize your tour, but I do offer these suggestions.
• Include a shop layout diagram. This helps to put everything into context. For those who do not have a computer generated diagram, hand drawn is fine.I am sure that I have forgotten something in the above list. Tell us about that too.
• Tell us the size (in usable interior square feet or square metres), the dimensions, and the ceiling height.
• Please include captions along with each picture. The vBulletin software that Family Woodworking runs on makes it very easy to intersperse words and text.
• There is a limit of 10 photos per post and 10 photos is often not enough to show a shop. Simply submit multiple posts in the same thread.
• Tell us where your shop is. For instance, a separate building, a basement, a dedicated garage, a shared garage, a closet (I once had a “shop” in a closet in my apartment).
• If your shop is in a separate building, one or more exterior shots would be good.
• Tell us other things such as type of floor material, natural lighting method (if any), artificial lighting method, heating method (if any), cooling method (if any), dust control method (if any), and electrical capacity.
