This is my workshop area in the garage. It is made from scrap lumber and kitchen cabinets from our house remodel. The bench has two vices, dog holes, and a built-in dust collection system with plug-in ports that go directly to the shop vacuum. I now have most of the basic tools and am teaching myself the beginnings of woodworking. I read the forums and tips then go out and practice. It is amazing how quickly a weekend passes now with this new passion. Can’t wait to build something that I don’t mind showing.

Nice organization. My shop has kitchen cabinets too. Most people think it is odd when I show them sockets in the spice rack.

Thanks Murray. I never thought of myself as organized but it sure is a good way to recycle old cabinets and the cost is right too. Right now we have 2 feet of snow and it is too cold to spend too much time in the shop.
Looking forward to viewing your shop and cabinets.

Nice shop. I can see the thought that went into organizing the storage. Great use of space.

I thought that you had moved your shop into the kitchen. Some people here do their work in the dining room.

Just be careful you don’t drill into your sawhorses (dining room table).

Nice shop.

Dale and Karson, thanks for the comments. I wanted to complete the kitchen theme by adding a beer frig and urinal but my wife said she would then never see me and besides I had already run out of room.

Thanks Rikkor. I have a list of projects to start as soon as things warm up. Right now the outdoors look a lot like they do in your bridge photo.
