Just my garage.
I’m slowly acquiring tools. Some hand tools from a carpenter relative who passed away, a router from my dad’s shop that hadn’t been used for 15 years, and I allow myself one new tool for every project I complete. Someday I would like to have a dedicated workshop but that’s likely just a dream.
Two pictures of the space, two picutes of one of my best space savers and the new vise. The sawhorse I saw on a jobsite and built my own. the legs are hinged so it can fit away into a tight space. The sawhorses were a must have as you can see the new vise that hasn’t been installed yet. I had to order it off the internet and wait over 2 months to get it because the only similar ones within 500km cost almost twice as much. I’ve been struggling through with a mechanics vise and the sawhorses but am very much looking forward to tomorrow as I will have my woodworking vise up and running.
The biggest problem with my workshop is in finishing. Since the space is mainly a garage and seems to always be a mess, it is difficult to do a proper job of finishing a project without dirt, dust, and dog hair getting all over it.

How about posting some pictues of your shop when you get a chance?

Well you have a good start there, and a new tool with each project sounds like a winner to me, Steve in Oregon
