small workshop ideas #15: More than you think in a Shed Shop..ccnt.AZ

The shelf is 16 in wide and 6 feet long. the height works for those tools..miter saw and belt sander and drill press. If I need to I can remove them and work on a stand or the workbench.

small workshop ideas #14: Change a little, Gain a little..Shed Space

Now I had plans before to go under a 48 inch shelf with the Shopsmith…it needs 43 inch of height with the table on it. and its 72 inch long on casters. So with hooks and a dog chain we were not using up goes the Shop vac , screws and strap for the bucket since we should only be cleaning it mostlly. Then I have an extra ...

Small Shop build in AZ ( from moving it?) #1: selling the wood and tools in PA

So the big plan is on. One photo is the Current one car garage here in PA, shop #5 since 2013. See my home page for more. Moving at the End of the Calendar year. Sell as much as you can of the big stuff. Not just the home stuff as we own a home already in Glendale,AZ. Thanks to all who have commented on any ideas and shop ideas I asked about before. So this is really like starting over. The main stationary tools sold at the yard sale and not really my worry to get big bucks for them as...
