My workshop doubles as my garage. I hoped to build a new detached shop, but with running water, heat, and a bathroom just inside the door, my garage is tough to beat. My Equinox spends a little more time in the driveway than it should, but that’s life.

The first thing you’ll notice is all the cabinets. I was on the lookout for some and found these at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Saginaw, Mi. I paid $300 delivered. The neat thing is that they’re the same exact cabinets we have in the kitchen right now. Same finish, pulls, everything! They’re made of plywood and were in great shape. The countertop is 22’ long and bought at Menard’s for about $120 total.

Most of my tools are old hand-me-downs from family. The table saw was given by my Uncle Chris who is a helluva woodworker. It’s a 1953 Craftsman on an old dictating machine stand. The drill press is an old Rockwell/Delta.

My primary wood storage is out in my pole building, but i have a few buckets of scraps behind the saw. I’d like to make a cutoff bin sometime soon.

By the way, if you look close at the first picture, you’ll see Norm peering from between the toolboxes on the bench. I got an autographed picture a while back and tried my hand at ebonizing an oak frame with vinegar and steel wool to put him in. He reminds me to “always wear your safety glasses”. (I added a better pic)

I just added a couple more pictures. Today was a housekeeping day primarily. I did make one simple thing, but spent most of the day on the shop itself. I’m making a Fall Resolution to do at least one thing to improve my shop every time I’m out working in it. Whether its simple housekeeping things like pushing the broom, or something bigger like finally making myself a proper cutoff bin or sandpaper organizer.

I got an email a few days ago from WOOD magazine. Seems they’re prowling LJ looking for good shop ideas to feature in the March 2013 issue and wanted some better pics of my wrench cabinet door pulls to add to the issue! How cool is that?!
