Specially for you my dear friend Steliart!
It took me 3 hours to clean the mess up, but here it is.
I don’t do everything here on the attic. things like the top from the table project were inpossible.
But i did alot here and i love the place. Downside it gets incredibly hot in the summer. And it’s not to big :)
i insulated the wall for noice reduction, and the floor has 2 layers of subfloor.
Still desperatly want a bigger and more accesable workplace, but for now it’s ok.

are those shelves in the 8th pic (holding paint cans, etc.) “floating” shelves? or are they attached with brackets. looks to be holding some decent weight.

Hey buddy, thank you very much for the shop tour, it was so interesting to see how well organize is your attic shop. I love small organize spaces and you have my congrads on the fine use of it. One more time the proof of the say “where there’s a will, there’s a way”.
My best wishes for dreams come true.

This looks very nice. Maybe you could put in a large wall or attic fan in. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Wow, didn’t expect so many great comments. Thanks alot Steli!
i guess working in a small place forces you to organize.
I’m not tidy at all :). But i found out you can teach yourself where u put everything.
Tyler ;

a side view, its a simple construction but very strong. The vertical parts are mounted to the wall.
Bertha; The bench was made in Hungary, i bought it, and yes it’s very sturdy :)
Heluvawreck; Thanks, i’ll keep that in mind!
