Bluffton, In 46714
United States

Well here is my ever-evolving mess of a workshop.

Pic 1 is standing outside my 16’ garage door. The left (west) wall is where i keep the miter saw, a storage rack for wood, my rollout table saw/router table workbench, and the bandsaw. The north wall is my main assembling area and houses the belt/disc sander and lots of storage space. Built-in stereo in the upper cabinets too :). The east wall (Pic 4) has a small closet with a pocket door and a 10’ wood storage area above it. Made some pine panel doors to close it off. Pics 5 and 6 show more wood storage and a floor to ceiling closet to store tools, tool cases, and the bandsaw, planer, and disc sander when I’m not using them.

I built most of this with free material… 6” batt insulation, drywall, drywall mud, various 2X4 stock, cheap particlboard and plywood, and what ever else I could get my hands on. It has served me well and when its half way clean I enjoy working in it :)

This is a nice shop space that you have to work in. You have organized it well and I like the benches and shelves that you have built. They add storage and nice work surfaces, which are always needed in any shop. I really like the table saw/router station that you built. This is a nice work center that also adds more storage to your shop. And I see that you also have a resident shop elf as well. :) I am sure that she is more than ready to help you around the shop.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

I see in the third pic that you have aquired the Coors light tool. I try to stay stocked up on those. Its funny though, when ever someone stops by and you get one out or twelve or so that you don’t get anymore work done. i can’t figure that one out! Nice setup!
