Figured I would upload my old shop. I lived at a house with 5 guys over the last two years while going to college. The other guys could have cared less about using the basement. I jumped at it and made it my own. I first built the miter saw station/workbenches. Each side is 4’ long with pegboard above. I built a utility workbench with a drawer for scrap wood. I built a few shelves where there was room. In the back corner there is 8’ long shelfs for wood storage. On the other side there is plywood storage. I can hold at least 10 full 8×4 sheets. I have a router table built a few years ago for a project.
A stand holds the rigid oscillating sander and grinder with storage below. In a raised portion of the basement I built a finishing room/ sanding room. The whole thing folds against the wall when its not in use. The walls are thick plastic stapled to the frame. A squirrel cage fan vents the air to the outside. I know its not quite explosion proof, but it works. On several occasions I used it as a sanding room. I did all my shaping for a chair I made and it excels at keeping the dust in and any odors if you are finishing. A furnace filter keeps air flowing through. Next to the finishing room is a cabinet and shelves to hold supplies.
This shop served me well for a couple of years. I used it mainly to finish projects outside of the wood shop at my school. Although it was a rental, I talked my landlord into reimbursing me for the materials for most of the shelves and benches I left behind.
