i think we have all at some point used whatever we could find or had as shop furniture, or making it cheap and functional.
but there comes a time where you want to work in a pleasing and nicelooking environment. so i ditched all my crap and gradually made some better furniture, and im still in the process.
doesn’t need to be expensive, mdf carcasses with pine faceframes. it is a great opportunity to experiment with different techiques and methods, so you know how when someone orders you something similar.
and it’s also great to have shop furniture that you and your customers can use as an example to understand what look they want. so use as much different techinques and styles that you can, while still having a result that fits well together. let it show off your skills.

i have an oak cabinet that you can see in my projects that is still standing in my shop, it draws people to it like a magnet, beats any website or ad.
