My workshop is primarily the garage. Just 11×23 feet, when the car is out. Many times, the car likes to help as an in-feed support for the long pieces that will fit on a towel on the hood and go between the right side-view mirror and the radio antenna. Sometimes the workshop is the whole garage, the dining room floor, part of the kitchen floor, and the hallway by the bedrooms. Sometimes the workshop is the whole living room floor, covered with plastic and propped up on little blocks of 2×4’s. When it’s not raining (sometimes this occurs), and I’m routing mdf, then the workshop is under the tree in the backyard.
It took several years, but the garage is getting better. It has violet crown molding, a high ceiling, special lights that shine on the white walls and ceiling. On one of the ceiling beams is spotlighted, an old metal sailing ship model that I painted metallic gold. I built a workbench and cabinets with recessed door panels and routed rail and stile construction. Light violet colors on the rails and stiles with warm white panels. The wall behind the washing machine and dryer is a Cape Cod beadboard alcove with rosewood cap rail. Wall cabinets are light violet.
