G'day Mates,

Thanks to this forum, this will be my 3rd year as a hobbyist woodworker. I am very grateful to all of you for your willingness to share and advise.

I hope to share some pictures of my working area and workbench. My adventure into hand tools was due to my space constraint, I have 1/4 of a 2 car garage.

Here are some pictures of my just completed trestle workbench and my woodworking area.

The trestles workbench is inspired by Scott Landis' "The Workbench Book", particularly his section on "Japanese Beams and Trestles". The trestle is a close replica of Makoto Imai's workbench from the pictures here, Timber Framers Guild 2007 Western Conference: Makoto Imai's Demonstration - 2007/04/14.

The dog holes on the posts are for storing hold-downs, Veritas' Wonder Dogs and Surface clamps. The tops are from a single piece of 6m Oregon or Douglas Fir I got cheap off ebay.

To help move the tops around the garage, I have a drafting table on wheels. I got the table off the local recycle shop for $10. The table is adjustable height by a winding mechanism. When not in use, it tucks neatly between the trestles, below the worktops.

The last few pictures are my woodworking area, timber storage, a tool wall and shelves for more tools.

I know I'll be woodworking for many more years, thanks to the many inspiration from all of you.

Cheers mates

Gunn

Sweet set up You have there Gunn,looks clean and organized , two plus's in My book ! When floor space is at a premium, those aspects will be a must. When I first started putting My basement shop together I didn't have much more room than You,but with persistence I kept exspanding to what it is now. Anyway,as they say,"Its not the size,but what it produces ". Looking forward to future updates and projects, stay safe !
