Workshop Information

Location
United States
A few shots of my new workshop. It's in a two car garage in a house that I rent so I'm trying to keep drastic modifications to a minimum. It was built with wall-to-wall pegboard, which has been both a blessing and a bother. I didn't take pictures of the wall nearest the tablesaw, but I built a sturdy set of 2×4 & plywood shelves that are mostly used to store the stuff that used to be in the garage before I took over. At the moment I've hijacked one of those shelves to store lumber.

I'm still messing around with the layout, but I think I like how I have it now, until I need to make space for a new machine (like the bandsaw I'll be getting soon). I build all the tables and the workbench with simple construction lumber using mainly a circular saw. The tables are topped with 3/4 plywood and 1/4" hardboard, or MDF. Essentially it was a case of "I need to find a place to put all this stuff so I can start making interesting things." I'm sure I'll go back and remake a lot of the shop furniture once I'm a bit more experienced and have a more permanent shop. I'm already eyeballing a real woodworking bench as an upcoming project. I also need to add a lowered assembly table and some wall storage solutions for lumber.

Oh and PS, that bar stool in the second picture isn't actually supporting my tablesaw's outfeed table. It just sorta looks that way. The "table" is a piece of plywood on 2×4 rails that are wing-nut'd to a jawhorse… a wonderful piece of equipment. This makes it easy to fold up or take apart and move out of the way if I need the space for assembly.

You have a nice start on your shop. The pegboard is a nice way to organize and keep hand tools stored in the shop. And since this was already there when you moved in, cost-wise this is a great situation. I like the way you have utilized the overhead space for storage. This makes effective use of otherwise "dead" space.

Keep us posted on your updates.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed the tour.
