Here’s a little guided tour of my hobbyshop that I just started up.

From the beginning this was my garage, but that was a long time since a car was parked in there.
My tools were all over my house, and never where I needed them so I really needed a place to keep them all.. But before I could build my shop, I needed another shed to put garden tools, furniture, mower, pots and everything else in…..
After that I started to renovate my old garage into a workshop. Walls and part of the ceiling is concrete. Easy to clean, easy to paint. On the floor I ended up laying plastic squares (dont know the name in english). As I am a little afraid of moisture coming up from the floor , this was the best solution. And it is quite easy to vaccum clean.

In the middle is my tablesaw (Bosch PTS10) with a Incra TS-LS fence. It’s wonderful to work with, worth ever penny.
At the left side of the table I also have my router. A Bosch GMF1400 and a axminster router lift.
Since I only do small hobbywork, I’m satified with my Scheppach dust collector, connected to a Dust Deputy. It saves alot of space and feels OK so far.
Since I moved in, there has been some new tools competing abut the floor area. The bandsaw is a Proofy 330, besides that a Einhell drillpress. Followed by a miter saw from Metabo.

On my wishlist is a jointer, a sander and perhaps a tv and a couch, That would be nice!

No more excuses to not start working.

That fresh coat of paint sure makes things look nice! That’s the first thing I did when I started my own garage shop.

Thanks all.
Added a dehumidifier to my shop. And now it’s a pleasure to be there. All wood stays dry and my tools doesn’t rust anymore.
Gengaskokaren, compare to the other jock’s, we are neighbours!
