    I've got half a two car garage to work in...the other half is where the wife's vehicle resides most of the time.

    Don't feel bad, this neatness thing is part of my DNA. I have no peace in cluttered unorganized spaces so I have to do it to relax...ha ha.

    Would love to have the work spaces you guys do, but we make do with what we have...
    This is my work space, I have to work late in the day lately, due to extreme temperatures so this shot was taken by my wife about 10:30 one night... Thankfully temps have evened out a bit so I can work whenever now, I dont work at all in winter though, that is the time I stay warm inside and do slot cars and models... :wink:

    Just moved my work area to be closer to the window. Lot easier to stay motivated when your not hiding in the shadows.

    Definitely lucky, I grew up messing around in my Grandpa's shop, but he definitely put the fear of God in me about leaving things out or loosing his tools. Funny thing is now I have a lot of his old tools in my shop, and the big roller box was a gift from my Grandpa to my Dad, now I have it. Moral of the story, take care of your dad's stuff! Ha.

    My brother gave me his old roller box, but I haven't moved any of my stuff into it yet.. I'm still trying to get my dad to just let me clean out a corner of the shop to use.

    sloar,

    That is a pretty rad setup. You have a big compressor running the sand blaster?

    Thought I would post some photos of my workspace in the basement. It works but someday I would love a garage or pole barn... something on ground level because it's cool till you have to haul a heavy cruiser or tandem up the stairs :lol: but it is a heated basement so it works nice for the michigan winters :) but yeah it has taken over... quite the sickness haha!

    OWow and to think mine was big enough.....not compared to some of you guys. And so organized. That is my downfall....organization of my tools. I am constantly looking for that one wrench.
    Started out on the back porch, before the addiction hit me.
    Then the 1st shop, a 10x15 plastic shed, which just got too small, so I built a 12x20 with a loft. Still have run out of room, so I reclaimed the plastic shed back from the wife.
