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.

Frank, you have put together a nice shop. Bummer about having to share it with the non-woodworking items but I guess the car, washer and dryer have to go somewhere. I have often said that I am glad to have added another garage in our basement that I later converted into my shop. If I tried to get my wife to give up her garage for my shop space that is one battle I can guarantee you I would lose. But it looks like you have done well with the space that you have. The bench looks pretty solid and you have your hand tools and shop accessories organized well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.
