The definition of picturesque is “striking or interesting in an unusual way.” Striking: that about sums up this photo of reader Sidney French’s brother’s workshop. Even if you’d never seen a shop in your life you’d know what this is with just one look.

More than just a place to build things, this spot, wherever it is, has so much character I’d spend most of my waking moments in it if it were mine. Someone spends a lot of time here or should. From the dozens of new and old projects to the homebrew storage, quiet improvements have been going on here for a long time.

Our hats off to both the guy this shop belongs to and to Sidney for taking photo.

    Beautiful. All it needs is a line shaft running the length of the ceiling powering some belt-driven machines.

    If Sidney’s brother is looking to adopt someone, I’m available.

    sometimes I wish I had a dad/granddad who had a hankerin’ for having a shop like this…and the means to make it happen.

    Now that’s a shop that shows a lot of real work gets done, unlike some ‘showroom’ shops where it appears the owner spends most of their time cleaning and rearranging the tools for mere display.

    I agree with the line shaft idea. A batch of big pulleys and belts and such and I’d be ready to trade my house for this shop.
