Western, Il
United States

“The Shop” is in half of a two car garage. The garage is probably 80 years old. I started with an old asbestos sided delapidated building. I sheeted the outside, wrapped, and then sided the building. I too out one garage door and added an exterior door. I ran 100 amp service and natural gas from the house. The inside is insulated and sheeted with half inch OSB. As the pictures show, I only have two stationary tools, the SCMS and drill press. I have tons of storage which I love as it helps to stay organized in a small shop. My lumber storage is a wall mounted rack on the garage side. My shop was also built on a tight budget. My only new tools are the table saw, SCMS, and planer. The dust collector, drill press, 12 inch band saw were all bought at auctions for about $100 each. The metal storage cabinets were bought for no more than $4 each.

Thank you, patience pays off. The shop started as a place for my dad to smoke his cigars without mom finding out and over a couple of years it has transformed to everything I need.

Have your say...
