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 space. 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.
