This is my workshop/bikeshed/laundry room/storage unit.
The structure is behind my house, both of which used to belong to my grandparents long ago.
It’s a little bit shabby and cramped but I’m grateful to have it.
Not a lot going on inside, my latest project on an old kitchen table converted to workbench, washer/dryer, my bike and of course – some wood.

Brokewood, you have an interesting shop in which to work. It does look like you have quite a bit going on in there. Bummer about the washer, dryer and bikes taking up space in the shop but I guess they have to go somewhere. :) I occasionally have similar issues with my shop. Whenever my wife want to store something, that she can’t bear to get rid of, the first place she looks is in my shop. At times this has led to some “lively” discussions.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Be it ever so humble … there’s no place like our shops!

I like it. I wish you many hundreds of hours of woodworking in there!

When I see things and shops like this, I stop complaing (for a minute or so) about how I have limited room, and uneven floor etc… :-)

I hope you get enjoyment out of what ever you build…

Brokewood, you would be amazed at what a man can accomplish in a small shop. We always start from where we are and not from where we want to be. You keep at it and you will be amazed at how nice your shop can be and what you might end up doing there. You posted this long ago. If you’d like to gives us an update.

Hey nighthawk, I’m glad I made you feel better about your shop ;)
And thanks for the links, Helluvawreck, I’m checking them out!
The last year has been pretty frantic for me, good stuff – had my first kid and building a new house!
I love that little shop, my problem is that I can’t find enough time to spend there! I’ve been working on a few things, maybe I’ll upload some projects soon. The shop still looks pretty much the same though, my progress in woodworking is slow – but I’m enjoying every minute!

Have your say...
