Is the woodshop part of the house or a separate building?
The normal way to ground you system is by using a Ground Rod or Plate found at you local Electrical shop or Lowes or ??
How far is the shop from the main house that has a grounded panel ?
If there is no electrical connection to the house, no sub panel, all loads connected only to the inverter , is there a need to ground the inverter at all, if not secured, it could be deemed portable.? The question in the link deals with portable generators so perhaps the same rules apply, if portable, just food for thought.http://m.ecmweb.com/qampa/code-qa-78
If you are in a location subject to code you might want to run it by inspector.

Are you running the loads through a panel, and if so, is the neutral-ground bond installed?
Maybe a bigger question is what you intend to run with a 2500w inverter off a couple of small 6v batteries. That's a lot of current at 12v from batteries that aren't made for it.
