My shop is small but comfy. I recently built an inexpensive work bench that is essentially my entire work area. It’s in the corner of our living room in our apartment. Before this I was using the dining room table so it’s a vast improvement! I built it as inexpensive as possible, 2×4 stud frame, OSB shelf, and Red Oak Plywood Top.
My goal is to start building furniture, but I won’t be able to make anything too large until my wife and I get a house; currently I’m focusing on small projects for around the kitchen, making boxes, practicing my router work and joinery, and focusing on finish work.
I have a nice (albeit inexpensive) set of chisels, a few handplanes from estate auctions, and some handsaws that I need to sharpen. I also have a circular saw, router, and spindle sander that see a little less action than my handtools. I’m very happy with my current setup, the only thing I really want is a front vise on my bench (I’m currently using a general purpose benchtop vise).
Thanks for checking me out!
