Workshop Information

Location
Denmark
I've set up a small workshop in a shed outside our house. All though there is not much room(The whole area is in less than 1.5×1.5 meters) I managed to cram in a fair bit of tools, storage and worksurface.

The biggest problem beside lack of room is moisture - Which I try to keep down with plenty of ventilation.

The most used tools, are on the wall in front of the biggest table or inside the cupboard behind it, which adds a bit of protection agains the moisture. Below the I keep cordless drill/driver and clamps and a few other bits.

My woodworking tools are in the smallest orange box (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/102588) - the big one stores more or less the rest of my tools including af few powertools. Both boxes are on a sheeth with wheels underneath so they roll out easy.

When Im using the wood tools I generally take out the entire chest and prop it up on a steepstool for better access, placed slightly to the side of the workshop area.

Nice and organized.

Just look at it this way, you do not have as much shop to have to clean up!

Keep making dust.

"Keep Clear"

Good reminder to a seemingly impossible task (for me anyways).

@timbertailier: No that is true, there a lots of place for the dust to hide though :)

@ToddJb: I'm struggling as well, but the writing on the desk helps somewhat :)

Looks like a fine place to spend some qualitool time. ;-)
I still miss my little workshop in the garden shed, it was like putting it on.
Best thoughts,

Thanks Mads - it is quite fine in its own way. I can certainly see what you mean about putting it on - I tend to think of it more like a submarine, and I've gotten quite good at using even the oddest spaces for storage :)

Nisker - nice little shop. I have about the same room in my garden shed. some 3×4 meter in total, where I also keep other tools, a table saw, the wood supply I use etc. But no where as well organized as yours. I work outside most times.

Where did you get the speed square ? And is it a metric version ? Find it useful ? I have considered getting one.

damjensen: Thanks!

I bought the speed square on amazon.co.uk - it not metric but I rarely use a square for measuring distance anyway, and the angles are just fine.
I find it somewhat usefull - biggest problem is the fact that it's really poor quality and not square at all, but it was very cheap - But I've recently bought a more expensive version from via amazon.com, I dont think I will use it much for finer woodwork, but for quickly marking a board for cutting and for framing etc. I think it will be very handy.

Nice cozy spot. I really like your use of both sides of your cabinet doors. I think I can use that in the small shed that is my shop. I think it's not having all we want that makes us appreciate what we have.
