    A mass mess

    Well I finally got the camera out to th shop. The shop isn't clean at all. The first pic is of the assembly and finish table. 2 the rolling ladder from where the first pic was taken and some over head storage. 3 other cornor of the assembly table and furnace. (Sorry Larry I forgot to cover up the spinnt thing.) The lathe was my wife's grandpa's. 4 under the overhead storage I have a sanding center. I built a downdraft table that hooks up to my dust collector. 5 the last cornor that will someday hold a cyclone. The outfeed table for the table saw. I also use it for a work bench.

    Same here...I see all the open floor and wall space and get jealous. Thanks for the quick tour, Rex.

    That's a nice bright space Rex. You could have some great storage up high, and you already have the moveable stairs for access.
    I like the long bench along the wall. Is it a series of cabinets joined together and topped with one long counter? Hard to tell in the pics.
    Regards

    Thanks guys. The shed is 30' x 56' total. The wood part is 24' x 30'. I put a door into each side but rarely use the walk in door under the overhead storage part. I come into the shed thru thru the machanic side and then thru the sliding patio door. The patio door is from the house when we remodeled a few years back. I built the cabinets along the wall and then built the top which runs the full length. It is a bugger to install 27' of countertop by yourself. I knoe there is a lot of wall space but things aren't hung up or have any order to them yet. I seem to be doing too many things at the same time.
