    Wow, what a shop

    Next time we think we don't have enough room, think "Organize"

    I wonder what his real hobby is? Making things or buying tools? There isn't much offered on the ww market that he doesn't have, some things in multiples.

    Not sure about the questions, but just think of the auction, when he gets out of the biz.

    Can't see how anything else might fit, but I bet he'd be able to! To be fair, it is a very large space to begin with - must be at least 1200 sf, probably more.

    That's insane ...got to love it. But I'm with Larry, looks organized, but don't see how one could do many large projects.

    Everything is shiny. There are older pieces of equipment, but the knobs and surfaces don't show any normal wear or oxidizing. The only sawdust was by the table saw and drill press and that looked staged. All the hanging table saw blades still had crisp markings on them. All of his wood storage was cutoffs.

    He's a collector, not a woodworker. But it is an extensive collection.
