My shop is a one car garage off the basement of my house (about 11×20 feet) and in it houses most of the tools I’ve collected over the years including my auto repair tools, welder, general household tools, etc.

I also store the recycling and garbage cans as well as (in the winter) my power washer and snowblower.

Its a complete mess but it mostly functions and its all mine and I love it.
I am very new to woodworking and attempt to try something new whenever I can and feel confident I will not completely destroy something.

First Picture is the garage actually clean for once

Second is my workbench and tool storage underneath, makeshift router table, set of shop drawers I made and my old craftsman drill press

Third picture includes my band saw and toolbox.

Fourth picture is my crappy tablesaw, lumber storage, compressor and right behind the compressor you can see my lathe peeking out.

Fifth picture is the planer, a workbench I made, some more toolbox/storage/etc.

Last and final picture is my makeshift clamp rack, trashbag/glove/paper towel holders and shelf/storage for my cordless tools and sanders

If you have any questions or suggestions on how to make this workspace function a little better, let me know!

I like your workshop. Cozy but real. There’s a craftsman’s vibe to the place.

Nice working shop, clean enough to be safe, messy enough to be well used. Enjoy!

Looks like a great place to work and it does look like you use it!
Thanks for sharing.

Nice, I like the use of the 4” PVC to keep the drill motors organized and easily accessed!
