This is my first post on this forum so please bear with me and I hope the pics show up. My wife and I purchased a house in PA last winter with a full (1900 sq feet) unfinished basement. My plan is make half of it my workshop and the other half will serve for other purposes. The basement had moisture issues when we first bought the place so I focused on getting that fixed this past summer. After that was addressed, I built shelving and benches along the walls and then began this project. The original plan was to use 2×3’s, 1×4’s, and OSB board. The thought of making this space into a wood shop wasn’t my original idea. I just needed a space where I could tinker around and fix things. And then I ran into someone looking to sell a few wood working tools and it went from there.
I built this around my contractors table saw and an old craftsman router I had laying around. The router is on a homemade lift. I also added a moxon vise to one end and there are plenty of other accessories I would like to add later down the road. The thing I like most about it is all the drawer space I gained : )
