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 and move the bench in.
It’s quite ‘compact’ for sure, but it seems to be the coolest room in the house and it’s attached to the back yard which is a good size. I plan to put my storage cabinets, router table etc. on wheels and move them out into the yard as required.
