Well…. It’s been two months since I said I was going to get it done… After almost a year I have FINALLY got my workshop!!!! It may not be much to look at to some… but to me it is incredible. If you look back at my previous posts you’ll see that I was working outside off plastic tables and a stack of pallets.
Soooo… after working in the yard with this crappy set up… my new workshop is wonderful to me. I just finished it tonight. So first thing tomorrow (right after the Easter Egg Hunt)... I’ll be MAKING SOME SAWDUST!!! I can’t wait!
Here we go! No excuses now!
So I’ll give you a little guided tour. First let me tell you that the soon-to-be-ex-husband hasn’t gotten his things out of the garage yet. So the space I have has been limited by his belongings. But I wasn’t going to let that stop me. I moved everything out of the way and I still have plenty of room to move around.
There is a pre-existing workbench in there as you can see on the left. This bench is too high, has a junky top and is not what I want. I will eventually tear it out and rebuild it… but as I said… look above at my previous workbench. LOL
Then over course I have some pegboard above the built in bench and to the right I have the workbench I built and my workmate with my table saw on it. Pegboard needs to be replaced.
In the rear I have some cabinets for storage. You can see in the pictures I’ve attached that I don’t have anything in them. Still working on accumulating things. But I’ll have lots of storage as I get things.
I’ve used the built in bench to put my miter saw on and underneath I’ve used the shelves to store my tools, some wood and other things.
Finally, over by the door I have my router table on a small end table. It’s not where I want it. But that’s where it’s been stored so I left it there. Also I have lots of outlets in the ceiling. You may be able to see that I also have a long extension cord that pulls down. LOVE IT!
It’s a great start! I look forward to changing and updating things as I go along. It’s going to be exciting. I can’t wait to share with you my first project!
(I also welcome any suggestions you might have on how to maximize my space :)
