Please show a Video or Photo tour of your workshop/work area, it doesn't matter how big or small it is. If its the kitchen table or the coffee table that you work with engines...that's ok!
I remember Bruce took us on a guided tour of his workshop some years ago.

This is a tour of my shop from about 10 years ago. I built a room in one corner of the basement about 12' x 12'. I have since replaced the round column Enco mill with a Grizzly knee mill but a lot of my engines were built with this mill. Computer is new plus added tooling.

I'm really impressed by these workshops and the people who can use them - takes a lot of skill and knowledge!

Great idea for a thread, Jim! You guys both have a sweet setup. Jim, your outside workshop is a good idea for my area, I just wouldn't be able to leave tools outside with the humidity here. My shop gets hot as all get out during the summer. A permanent workspace outside is brilliant.
 George, your machine shop is impressive- I'd love that Craftsman. My Taig is...limited.

George what a fantastic workshop, terrific pieces of machinery and that V twin engine that you designed is incredible. I could spend some time watching over your shoulder and learning a thing or two that's for sure!

Looks great Pete (so does the hound :) ) my space is tiny as well. You just get really clever at maximizing the space you have and also trains you (well sort of) not to be so messy :)
