Well here is my workshop. It’s pretty small… being the front portion of a one car garage. This is one of the reasons I primarily do small work like boxes and little turnings. Several years ago I decided to make and effort to make a decent workshop out of this small area. This is the result. Most of the tools are mobile. No fancy workbench.. just an old lumber yard workbench that I reworked and made mobile and outfitted it with back and side panels of 1/4 hardboard and the top is removable hardboard as it wears out. Storage underneath for the air compressor, nail guns and other tool storage. I do have a little bit of area about 2 foot deep down the side where I converted an old dresser into a worktop and storage. Inside the drawers are storage of fasteners and some home remodeling supplies and this is also where I keep my supply of 1/4 thin stock for box lids etc. The top is where the miter saw and the little disc/belt sander. Anyway it’s small but it works and thanks for looking.

It looks great Corey. It is well equipped and organized while fitting your needs. What more can you ask for, other than more room? We all want that ..

I am impressed with the cleanliness. I can’t do it.

Thanks guys! One thing with a small shop you need to be organized and it needs to be clean or I just find it to difficult to work in. I allow an hour for cleaning when I am working in the shop and it seems to work!
