I’m just starting a 10×17 mini-shop, I’m about 1/3 into it…. some tools (table saw / router / hand tools / workbench) are already in place… the rest will come as the project progresses…. so this is an ongoing thing. Recessing “cabinets” between 2×4 studs gives me more storage, but smaller tools (screwdrivers, pliers & so on) are kept in a large tool chest… they’d be living in under a coat of sawdust…. too much work ! I’m pretty excited about this…. in a week or so I get my new Laguna bandsaw,,,, pretty soon it’ll be too cold out and this project will have to go into hibernation until the spring thaw. Oh well.

I will be downsizing my basement shop to make space for a second bathroom in the house. My new shop will be about 9X12, so your shop is sounding quite spacious to me! How do you like that workbench from Harbor Freight? Welcome to LumberJocks!

It’s the best value out there… I’ll be buying a second one… also mounting wheels on it so they can be joined together fur cutting sheets of ply.

Nice router table. I like the idea of recessed shelves between studs to save space for a small shop.

Great idea using the wasted space between walls for tool storage.
