My workshop is a hodge-podge of space where-ever I can find it in my basement. Most of the woodworking (at home) happens in my townhouse backyard. The space is covered by my deck which gives me roughly a 9’ x 18’ space to work in. The ground is sloped away from my house, and so leaves me with an uneven space to work on. To solve the problem, I’ve bought and built a few things.
- Most of my tools are stored in the house, and require moving them out of the basement into the backyard. To help with that I have invested quite a bit into a tool storage system (Dewalt TSTAK). These house my handheld power tools
- I have a few metal storage racks in my basement. I split them into 2×3” tall racks racks so I can store lumber on the top shelf and benchtop tools below.
- I have a Rubbermaid storage shed with wooden racks in the backyard for my frequently used (compressor, shop vac) or heavy (planer) benchtop tools
- Hand tools, smaller clamps, and consumable supplies are hung throughout pegboard and racks in the closet below the stairwell.
- A workbench (work in progress) serves as a storage area in the finished section of my basement.
I still have a lot of room for improvement. While I have accumulated a full set of tooling at home, I am fortunate to have many well stock shops around me that are available to the public (for a cost). This greatly improves the project options available to me.
