This is what will eventually become a clean and organized shop. It began about 2 1/2 years ago when I purchased a 12×16 Tuff shed. All tools that were stored elsewhere were brought to this building, along with things that my other half decided should also be stored. Work benches were fabricated from solid core 1 3/4” doors from a demolished motel, mounted to a 2×4 across the wall studs and front legs from treated 4×4 remnants (doors – $5.00 at local recycle store and 4×4s – $1.25 found in lumber yard scrap pile). Overhead storage bins were vertical storage shelves from a yard sale ($6.00). I’m not really cheap….just on a budget Clutter, junk and trash all free, compliments of my soul mate, kids and of course myself.
My equipment consists of a 10” table saw, a portable 10” table saw, chop saw, a couple of routers, saw, drill press, circular saw, jig saws, and various other items. Not the best stuff, but functional for what I attempt to build or repair.
Why, you may ask, is this building still in such a disarray after 2 1/2 years?? For 18 months, I went thru some serious treatment for cancer (now gone) which during that time I wasn’t up to doing anything. However, I’m back and setting up my shop is my first priority (after the Honey do list). A lot of garbage/junk has already left the premises and I donated my RAS to my buddy. So now, I can at least walk thru the building (after my motorcycle is taken out which lives here during the night). Pix to follow of organized work shop
