Workshop Information

Location
Canada
I am fortunate to live in a townhouse with a two-car tandem garage, half of which (about 20'x14') has been allocated as workshop space. As this is my first year into this hobby, I haven't had a chance to really get into making a decent organizational system, which means I currently have a 2.5'x8' bench with no working space (i.e. covered in tools and gadgets) and a 2'x4' bench sitting in the middle where I do most of my work (including any small power tools or hand tools work, sanding, assembly and finishing).

Due to the limited space I usually end up using any surface I can find when I need space to let things dry. This may include the deep freezer or table saw. I briefly began a blog series on lightly renovating my shop, but life has put a pause to that project. I plan to continue when I figure out where I'll be living in the near future.

Until then, I have uploaded a few photos of my work area.

Welcome to LJ. 10' x 14' can be a lot of space of you go vertical.

Yes! Although the planer might be a bit high. As I get going with things I plan to add some wall-storage, and perhaps even some ceiling-storage. For now, I am saving space by going without a miter saw or thickness planer (I can accomplish such tasks with my table saw and router).

I'll upload pictures as I get on with these sorts of things.

Weth's sketch-up pic is from Ron Paulk's Mobile Workshop. Check it out on youtube. I borrowed his drawer construction ideas for my work trailer.
You may find some ideas from his videos.
