This was originally built for my Remote control plane hobby but have since converted it to my wood working shop, it’s a bit small 12’x16’ but with the room allowed it will have to do and I manage to make the best of it. It’s best suited for smaller projects but I managed to build a 55”x23”x68” armoire computer desk in it.
Newest addition to house the DC and Air Compressor.
These are the latest changes to the shop interior taken 1/29/13
Moved the workbench to the adjoining wall along with the router, by doing this it gave more floor space I also located all bench top machines to a localized rack freeing up more space.
I built a custom mobile base for the band saw GO555P giving me extra storage underneath the base, it has wheels on the back and a U-bolt on the front that allows me to hook up to it with a custom dolly I made that has a hook that loops inside the U-bolt picking the front up, this also allowed me to add an out feed table along with a small desk type light. The base that came with the saw is stored up in the shop attic still in the plastic bags they shipped in.
Additions to the shop, more storage and finishing booth, I’ve been using my deck to do my finishing on and since messing up my deck I decided to add another building to the backyard as a finishing booth along with more wood storage.
These pictures show as you are walking out of the back door onto the deck, this is where I used to do my finishing at, made a mess of my deck, hence the reason for the extra building. The swing/bench you see in the pictures my 80 year old dad built, another project that needs paint and the chains.
In this picture is a 4’ x 7’ storage to hold yard tools and related, it was also part of the change, I added a support frame under it lifting it off the ground.
On the other side of the workshop is where I put the new metal building at, All wood used was treated, I constructed the base for the building using two 4×4’s as skids placed on top of leveled 12” square concrete blocks and used 2×4’s to build the frame on 16” centers resting on top of the skids, I used pressed roof decking for the flooring. No electricity so as not to pull permits, an extension cord will be used as needed to supply lighting.
Inside on the left side in this picture show all of my vendor booth stuff
On the newly purchased plastic shelf is a microwave used for drying out green wood, inside of the white cabinet holds all of my finishing supplies.
Here is the workbench I’ll be using for finishing on, shelving below will help store all of my wood that I was able to clear out of my workshop.
My stock pile of project logs out behind the workshop which consist of live oak, post oak, hackberry, elm and ash.
