Hi there! Welcome to the tiny shop chronicles. I am quite new to this site and have been enjoying it tremendously. It is full of information and experience but mostly a terrific bunch of helpful people.

Shrink the workbench (if you can call it that, it more a table top right now) OK no lynching, it is not an actual proper workbench! ;-) Sounds counterintuitive, but it is actually too big for a tiny shop. It is there only because I reused what I had without any changes. I recycle this from the time I made concrete countertops for the kitchen.
