Sadly, my “shop” is far from a “shop.” It is, however, my patio and there’s plenty of room to work, even if it’s not an ideal set-up.
When I’m in project mode, my beloved miter saw—my pride and joy—is mounted to a high-top, heavy duty steel frame patio table acquired from one of the establishments on my block. I leveled it out—also taking into account the patio slats which can be uneven – then crafted a brace of sorts to mount the saw to the table, and allow it to be removed when I need to put it back away.
Since I lack dedicated work space, I picked up a Keter collapsable work bench on clearance a few weeks back and to be honest, it works great for what I need. Mainly, it gets used for assembly, sanding and painting or, if I’m using the router, I rest the router table atop it.
Right now, it does the job. It’s not ideal, it’s not perfect but I found a way to make it work. Hopefully, soon, I’ll be relocating to someplace a little bit bigger but for now … it’s my shop.
-- May the good Lord help me if I ever actually have a shop, garage or basement.
