I’m in the process of converting a 20’x24’ chicken coop/hay storage barn into my shop. I’ve finally moved all my tools and work bench from my old shop to my new shop. My DC is up an running and the chicken coop room is now my “tool room.” Cabinet carcasses are built but still need doors and drawers.

My old shop was a 12’x32’ garage stall attached to the house and dust and fumes were always a problem. This shop is an outbuilding and solved that problem.

My workbench is sort of a “mutt”, built from mostly leftovers from previous projects. The legs are beech with walnut stretchers and cherry panels. The top is a recycled walnut conference table top wrapped in maple. And the drawers are baltic birch with sugar maple fronts. I harvested the sugar maple and walnut from neighbors who wanted their trees removed.

I really like your shop. Nice to have a dedicated space. I like the router table, table saw, the dust collector(s), and the work bench. Looks like a great place to spend some time doing what you enjoy.

Looks like it’ll make a great shop once you’re done. Up near my old neck of the woods (Wyoming)

Nice refurb on the old ” Coop de’Workshop”

Is that an old hay rake you use for hanging stuff on the wall?

That hay rake makes for a great place to hang a few tools. Adds a little character to the place. Got a few more antiques to hang once everything is in order.
