Workshop Information

Location
United States

My little shop has come along way since I started working on it back in June 2018. I have most of the tools I will need, some of them have not been placed yet because I have not made benches for them to be mounted on… the rest will come as the project progresses…. so this is an ongoing thing. Recessing "cabinets" between 2×4 studs gives me more storage, but smaller tools (screwdrivers, pliers & so on) are kept in a large tool chest… they'd be living in under a coat of sawdust…. too much work ! A new member of the shop, a Laguna 14/12 is giving the shop a cool new attitude… nice…, and I just got a Cutech 8" jointer!... .pretty soon it'll be too cold out and this project will have to go into hibernation until the spring thaw. Oh well.

I will be downsizing my basement shop to make space for a second bathroom in the house. My new shop will be about 9X12, so your shop is sounding quite spacious to me! How do you like that workbench from Harbor Freight? Welcome to LumberJocks!

It's the best value out there… I'll be buying a second one… also mounting wheels on it so they can be joined together fur cutting sheets of ply.

Nice router table. I like the idea of recessed shelves between studs to save space for a small shop.

Great idea using the wasted space between walls for tool storage.

I'm currently building my shop and I downed some pine trees when I cleared the lot and I am going to use them to line the inside of my shop. I love the cubby holes built into the frame. I think I'll steal that idea! Looks great.

Talk about in the woods… my shop is 10' X 17' and tucked into the woods behind my home in Maine…. with that sized space I have to do some careful planning… often leading to creative results. That's how the recessed shelving came to be. Good luck on your efforts !

looks a bit chilly.but as small as it is can you heat it some way so you can work in the winter?

Yup… Got a small propane heater inside… at first I was hyper-careful about, but with all the ai rleaks I new get a whiff over noxious gas… and it does okay to keep it chilly.. but not cold. (by Maine standards anyway !)
