My ”Poor Workshop” is my “Sanctuary”

My poor workshop is located on the roof-floor at the “air well” column of the house. Table saw and router table has to share the space with the domestic water-tank. My Workbench (unlegged) and Tools-Cabinet are
at the void area where only five-footer like me can go there.
Very small and so hot like in an oven. What one can expect out of this miserable workshop?
But this is my sanctuary.

Hi Woodworm,

Any shop is a good shop. But it does look cozy in there. Despite the space limitations you have organized your shop well. And you have some nice tools to play with.

Thanks for posting pictures of your shop. I enjoyed visiting with you.

I’ve seen smaller shops, and like Scott said, “any shop is a good shop”. I like your wall tool box. Nicely organized.
Thanks for the post.

Hi woodworm;

anywhere with room for the essentials is good enough to call:

“home sweet home”

Nice use of limited space.

Looks like you are making good use of the space. One suggestion, since space is such a premium, remove anything that is not needed or used, such as boxes, etc. I really like your handtool storage cabinet.

Hi Woodworm,

I think these guys have it right, any shop is a good shop. You no doubt will spend hours in it. It is cool to meet people living in other culture with the same interest I have. Thanks for posting.
Play safely, Roz

Looks like you’ve done a fine job of squeezing in the essential tools into a limited space, an art that is important to master. :) well done!

It might be unconventional and at times draw question to our sanity by our loved ones but the truth is our shop is our sanctuary, and only here can we be free.

I love small shops, it seems that the smaller the shop the more ingenuity lies within. Cheers
