Okay, so I’ve finally taken some photos to show what I’m working with.
1. It’s a shed (5m x 3m x 2m or 17” x 10” x 7”), aka steel box, unlined, hot as … in summer and pretty chilly in winter (I am so glad we don’t get snow!)
2. My woodwork bench that my Dad made around about my last year at school or shortly after
3. My wood stash (that which you can see) and some other “stuff” in the corner that I need to sort out.
4. My storage shelves and general purpose bench – complete with child’s bike waiting to be fixed.
5. Another view of the shelves and general bench past my late Gran’s wordrobe that I’m too sentimental to part with but that does not fit anywhere inside the house. It’s full of camping / outdoors type stuff. In the bottom right of this photo the Bosch cordless drill box is sitting on my Triton workcentre (minus the table, which is covered with a blanket and leaning agianst the shelves in the background.
The shelves are in a U shape with one leg jutting into the centre of the shed. At the end of that leg, is the wardrobe, which gives it the special position of pretty much dead centre of the shed.
The Triton workcentre gets wheeled outside to be used.
Most of my woodwork has been done in school workshops that are spacious and well equipped (even my most recent so many years after leaving school). So … how do I make my shed as good a space as a school workshop? When I work that out, I’ll let you know.
-- I may have lost my marbles, but I still have my love of woodworking
