My workshop is located in the 8’x8’ cubbyhole of my garage. I’m allowed to remove the wife’s car if I need to rip something longer than 3’. I don’t have any spectacular tools, just the usual assortment of basics.

- As you can see by the photos, the four shelves provide a generous storage space for all my various handtools, as well as random bowls, towels, and vehicle fluids.

- The second picture is a detail of the heart of my shop; the rickety workbench I slapped together years ago to hold a dissassembled transmission. It has since become my combination bench/router table.

- The recessed cubbyhole to the left of the shelves is used for storage of shovels, spare board stock, lights, and various things such as the Samburu spear in the furthest corner.

- Number four is my auxillary storage area. This is the far wall where I store all my other hand tools, toolboxes, and stock that I’ve started working up but don’t have room for in the primary shop.

- Number five is the whole enchilada.

Verilith: tight space Alot of us have wheels on our tools so we can get space to work. But in your case Lawnmower. But you’ve got an easy chair to sit and think.

I live in the Georgetown area and we have a woodworking club that meets on the third thurs of every other month. March then May. Give me acall if you’d like to come visit.

The meeting is in Delmar on the MD/DE border just off Hwy 13. Meeting starts at 7:00pm

lol, that chair sees more use than most of the tools.

I work nights but have Thursday nights off. Might be able to swing that this month. I appreciate the info, and will be in touch.

You can drive down Hwy 113 and stop by my place and we can go together. And I can show you my shop.

Sounds great Karson. I’ve been down that way a few times, so shouldn’t have too much trouble finding you.

That’s a load of wood, Obi. My only question is, where do you put your tools??

The wood is stacked up on the tools. My table saw is in the middle of the mess. The chop saw is on the left. The dust collection and the drum sander is to the left and is usually rolled outside so I can use the table saw.

Isn’t it amazing how Obi can turn out such great projects, while working under all that lumber?! ;)

Yah, pretty small space but how much space do you really need??

Give me a call at 302-337-0192 and we can coordinate our schedule. I need to be there a little early because I’m giving a demo on Vacuum Veneering.

A small shop, but looks like you have the basics covered Marv. Do you use that lawnmower as your router motor too? just kidding..

Hi Marvin,

You have a cozy shop there but you have the space and tools to get the job done. Your work bench looks solid to me. If it can hold up a transmission it has to be pretty solid.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing.
