due north of Boston, MA

This is my small workshop, carved out of a quarter of my basement. The bench was made from our previous kitchen table; I added the frame that supports it and slapped on a front vise. To house my expanding hand tool collection, I built tool cabinets and a set of drawers within the frame, which makes it much heavier. I recently built a sharpening station to hold the grinder and the messy sharpening tools. I use my TS and jointer occasionally.

it’s not the size that matters—it’s what you do with it.

You have a nice shop space there. I like your use of the overhead space for storage. In small shops we have to make do with every bit of storage space that can be found. You built a really nice tool cabinet as well.

thanks for the post.

How do you keep it dust free? I have such a hard time with wood dust.

Have your say...
