Here's My Workshop!
By Phil Stallings
New Bern, NC


I got interested in woodworking very early in life by working with my daddy. I have always wanted a shop and never had one till I got married. I started with a tablesaw and a few hand tools in a two car garage that my wife kept her car parked in. Every time I built something she would have to park her car outside. I guess she liked the things that I was building for her and one day she told me I could use the whole garage as my shop and then it happened my tools got pregnant and started multiplying! Needless to say the garage became too small, real quick.


One of my goals in life was to build a shop before I retired. The shop was built in 2014 and I retired in June 2018.


My shop is 24'x32' and as is always said by everyone that builds a shop, I wish I would have built it bigger. The shop is insulated and has an 8000 btu air conditioner, which keeps the shop comfortable. All of my tools are on casters and all the walls are OSB, so if I need to hang something I just screw it to the wall.
