« Part 4: Cyclone vac placement Part 5 of Setting up my new small shop series no next part

Now I needed some where to work.
I know most on here want a heavy duty work bench but again I work sitting down and have no need these days for planing tables and the like.
I don’t know if I will be building a work desk but really don’t have the room at this time, we’ll see.

Again just made out of scraps.
Need a place to put things together and sand sand sand.

I all ways need a place to belt sand parts at different heights so.
Bought a toilet bolt kit and it has all the parts to make my parts stopper.
You need two of those bolts that have wood threads on one end and metal threads on the other.
Not sure if HD has the handles but I got mine at Lowe’s awhile back.

Thanks guys!!!
It’s a start.
Got a very small air conditioner put in the window but it can’t keep up with the heat here in Alabama so will be needing to get the insulation put in.
Half the fun of wood working is figuring things out, and setting up a new shop is a bunch a fun even when I know the minute I get it set up I’ll come up with another idea. LOL
I hope this blog will be helpful to some just starting out, it ain’t pretty but hey it will get the job done for the really important things building models.

As long as it’s a Dutch girl with those high heeled clogs… YES…

Hey #4, hope there are more blogs to come! Haven’t spotted the pink basket… or is this the neighbours workshop?

Probably a tad late now, however, I hope you haven’t got the heavy stuff on “soft rubber” casters. I found that once placed you don’t often move the heavy machinery, but if you then have to one day, I’ve found my wheels flattened from the weight to the extent it was prone to toppling when moved. I did replace the heavy equipment with nylon wheels… not as “smooth” as the rubber but they stay round.

I take the above back (as I can’t delete it)... Noticed you did use nylon casters on some of your mobiles.

You practicing making wheels already? This items keeps appearing in other photos!

Yeh, I suppose it’s hard to throw holes away.

You’ve certainly fitted a good array of machinery in a small space Bruce…
WELL DONE, especial with all the customization to accommodated your needs…
The level solid floor is a treat allowing for the castors on all the machines….
With such a small enclosed shed, may I suggest a room filter if you haven’t already got one..
Thank you for the photos and notes over the five parts…
Enjoyed the look around your shed….might have to send you an Aussie Flag to decorate it…
