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...

Setting up shop #1: Clearing the storage room

02-24-2009 11:40 AM by Mark Gipson | 6 comments »

I made the first steps in setting up my shop today. I already have a workbench but currently it sits outside, not such a good plan with temperatures hitting 36C everyday and the rains approaching. We rent a house on the outskirts of Bangkok which has a small shed sized storage room which was full of the landlords old junk. Today a truck from a local temple arrived with 4 or 5 guys and they cleared it out and took everything away. Now I can start to clean it up, slap some paint on the walls an...

Starting Over?

02-11-2009 04:02 AM by GeorgeM | 8 comments »

I hope you will all bear with me as I learn the tricks of woodworking. I am basically starting from scratch but I feel better saying that I am “starting over” in my woodworking. I did some ww back in the early 1980s but due to a divorce, moving, not having a place and losing custody of a lot of my tools, I am just now getting back to it. I may have bunches of questions as I go. I am relagated to a small workshop due to space constraints in my yard. I just do not have enough...

Ode To Small Shops #1: From Garage to Patio to Deck, My Small Shop Finally Has A Home

11-16-2008 10:10 AM by slooper | 4 comments »

My first shop was what I could squeeze into a one car garage, leaving enough room for the car of course, and a workbench in my crowded basement. My second “shop”, if one could call it that, was a combination of a 3’x6’ closet off the patio of my 1st floor apartment, the 6’x10’ patio with picnic table, and the back of a utility trailer. If I caught you scratching your head, let me explain. My big tools; table saw, jointer and planer; were in a storage she...
