Unfortunately, my workshop is more like a work area. Confined to one wall in the 2 car garage. The garage is home to my wifes car, the laundry room, storage, etc. I’m sure that i am not alone with this dilemna. It works for now, hope to buy some acreage one day and build a dedicated work shop.
I started with the workbench, which was built with more of a framers touch than a woodworkers hand. I have remodeled multiple homes and previously spent a few years as a superintendent with a homebuilder. The workbench flip top is perfect, and when extended, still leaves room for the wife to park. I have the standard tool set; table saw, planer, drill press (just picked it up today from Craigslist), bandsaw, router, and other various tools.
As most of you with small workshops know, portability is a must. I purchased some cheap workstands from Northern Tool, beafed them up, and added casters. At first I was gonna make one into a router table, but after looking at the store models, I might just buy one. Still haven’t made up my mind.
Anyways, thanks for looking and thanks for the warm welcome to Lumberjocks. I am really starting to get some good ideas.
