Small Shop Adventures #1: Small shop adventures.

08-22-2014 08:28 PM by BrockF | 4 comments »

The construction of the new garage last fall gave me a clean slate for setting up my small shop. The lone survivor in terms of shop furniture from that leaky, damp mess was my workbench. It survived several months in public storage and the trip back and forth. The top is solid and heavy and I don’t like to waste. It reminded me of how far I have come in my wood working and how much more I still have to learn. I scrapped the base but kept the top, thinking about how best to ...

Setting up shop

08-07-2013 07:45 AM by ever4ward | 5 comments »

We recently moved from Austin, Texas to Newbury New Hampshire. My wife, youngest daughter and I are taking a mid life sabbatical from the same old grind, downsizing, simplifying, home schooling and trying to figure out what we are going to do when (if) we all grow up. I have always wanted to work with wood but being hyper focused on chasing the almighty dollar since I was 12 years old (with some success) I could never get to the point of building skills with the tools I would buy on a whi...

My TINY shop renovation #2: Plans are starting to come together.

01-09-2013 03:48 AM by StayinBroke | 2 comments »

So, starting this blog yesterday and putting ideas down in my idea book has helped ease my frustrations with my shop so much that this entry just might be a little more, um, ..... normal. If there is such a thing. (Well, the beers I drank last night may have had a little to do with that too) I think it’s because I can share my thoughts and ideas with people here that have similar problems since my wife doesn’t get it and really doesn’t care. Anyway, I wanted to start this en...

Cordless Drill Charging Station

01-29-2012 09:18 PM by Sailor | 3 comments »

I decided to build a charging station to store my cordless drills. It turned out pretty well and really helped because I just had my drills laying around and my chargers in different places with the cords in the way…. Thanks for watching!

Workshop Tour (space efficiency)

01-28-2012 05:59 AM by john1102 | 6 comments »

I thought I would finally post some images of my workshop. It is still being modified but improving. I currently work out of a 12×24 workshop and when weather becomes adverse my tools must be mobile to allow for my wife to pull in out of the elements. Eventually I plan to have a dedicated shop some day but it will be some time from now. I am still young and other items take priority as most others know. That said I have had to work smarter and more efficient to make the most of my...

In The Shop #2: Shop Layout - Making do with a small/weird space

11-04-2011 10:33 AM by live4ever | 1 comment »

My shop is in our musty 2-car garage, and while the space itself is quite a bit larger than your average 2 car garage, it is awkward due to the fact we park 2 cars in it (with a single garage door), the presence of some structural posts, an ancient and ginormous furnace, water heater, and laundry. Sometimes I drool at the space a new furnace and tankless water heater would afford me, but that’s another discussion for another day… It has taken me 2 years to determine the optimu...

The tiny shop chronicles: #2: What’s the shop for?

08-19-2011 07:02 PM by SnowFrog | 0 comments »

In this second installment of the chronicle, I wanted to validate my priorities with you guys. But that will have to wait for the next chronicle because before I go there, I’d need to add some information which came out of a questions asked in my first blog, “what do I intend to do in that shop”. I must admit it is a big consideration which impacts the whole shop layout. Well there is no simple answer to this question. The true answer is I do ”what must be done” as much of my work is based...

I saw a post from Fine Woodworking the other day about a survey they were doing about small shops.
