Wine box saw cabinets and a plane door…
even champagne.

1. Wine box cabinet small saws.
2. On the wall.
3. Champagne box large saws.
4. On the wall.
5. Plane door (blinded door).
6. Reading corner.

Now a new order in the shop, especially my saws are now easy to catch, but also I can enjoy a good book in my chair by the fire.

This where it all started with these wine boxes:

Perhaps this can inspire others to drink all the wine, so they can use their wooden wine boxes.

ok let me first address your boxes, they are an outstanding use of what would otherwise be trash. now I have to comment on that bench, is that something you ” found” along your travels? it looks ancient and I absolutely am jealous of it lol. and your shop does not resemble a shop at all. its more like a fortress of solitude, and its fantastic!

What a good use of wine boxes. I have a couple of those somewhere. Maybe I should look into making something out of them.

BTW, nice cozy shop.

Mads, your shop is much nicer after the redo. No wonder you are so happy after drinking all that wine. I would be too.
Hope to see you soon. Maybe in the autumn, but next year for sure.

Jim R, thanks, in a way it’s down cycle when the wine are gone… Naaa if I had to chose between wine and tools, I would chose tools.
Madts, Smiles, would be wonderful with a visit if you come to town again. Hik.
nisker, Yes the word trash are kind of abstract.
Tyvekboy, I have some more here also, but not any spare wall…
Jim J, nothing like having the tools where they are needed when they are needed, even it was a suffering to drink all that wine and champagne. Yes my friend, we are men of order, perhaps even OCD.
kooldecker, the bench is a old Danish one, here you can read more . Thanks it is my freedom fortress, my sweet solitude, man cave, moment of joy.
patron, laughs, I was hoping someone would notice that shelf, it was like that when I got the shop an I decided to leave it, just for the smile, especially now the planes are in place it looks crazy to me also.
Greg, even when I’m in a bad mood, I can’t help to smile when here, that’s a little miracle to me.
Lew, I am a lucky man. ;-)
Klaus, so that’s where they are! Now I can do some woodworking again. Laughs.
Thank you all for the kind comments, I do feel lucky, blessed or what it’s called, lucky to have this little Paradise on earth and be able to call it my place, life is sweet.

Nobody would call that a SHOP, it’s too therapeutic. What a great place to just idle time and polish those lovely tools. A man’s man cave….....

RSetubal, I’ll grab a beer then… Smiles.
JimInNM, let’s call it home, therapeutic I love that word for it because that is what it is for me, it’s what keeps me sane and makes me relaxed.
