I eliminated one bench I was only using to pile things on, and moved things around, now I have very usable space with lots of storage.

Here's mine. It's 27 x 25, the spray booth is in the corner still enclosed by plastic. I haven't gotten the time to sheetrock it in yet.

Really nice shop Tim. How big is your spray booth?

It's about 5x6 but my plan is to expand it to about 6x8. It's a little cramped for some if the things I want to do. I have to spray bursts outside of it.

I've been lurking for a little while, but thought this would be a good spot for my first post. I'm in the process of getting my workshop put together so I can start building. Here's what I'm working with in its most chaotic 'before picture' state. Still need to source an affordable but versatile band saw.

Out of chaos comes beauty, huh?

I'd show you a picture of mine, but I can't remember where I set my camera.
