« Part 1: Workshop Progress Part 2 of Workshop Progress series no next part

As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted above the work table came with the home. A fresh coat of paint and door pulls will complete this overhead.

My table saw is also getting a facelift. At this stage I have installed a new Vega fence on my ‘historic’ Craftsman 10”. Two years ago I rebuilt the driveline and installed a new Baldor motor. I am please to say that the table saw passes the ‘nickel on its edge test’.

Thanks for viewing; I look forward to hearing about some of your space saving and workshop transformation resolutions.

Nothing to be ashamed of. I like the pidgeon hole cubbys… Need to make one for my shop! To gain some extra storage, if it isn’t there already, rip some 1/2” or 3/4” plywood to size and top those cabinets with that. It will give you a great place to slide things that need to be out of the way…
