It is a work in progress but it is getting there slowly but surely.

Keeping it as low cost as possible but with my own flair.
Since i have had a few questions about it, this is actually the chemistry desk from my old grade school i am converting to my workbench. I bought it for 10.00.

Hey Dan,

Great shop! Looks like you have a lot of free space to expand too. Fantastic. Any water problems with the block foundation? And BTW – its ALWAYS a work in progress. I can honestly say I have never had the thought “my shop is done. I don’t want to do anything more to it!” It never enters my head. I could have Norm’s Yankee Workshop shop and it wouldn’t be perfect – although I’d take it.

It so reminds me of my shop back in Massachusetts before I transferred out here to California. I had a similar looking basement. Mine was more of an open rectangle with support posts in the middle of the space. Damn posts were really annoying, but I guess they were better than the alternative – having the floor above collapse. I loved that basement.

Out here in sunny California there are few if any basements. I had to move my shop into my 2 car garage. I had > 700 sq feet in Massachusetts, I am down to about 280 sq.ft. here in California. But the sun shines just about every day, and I can’t complain. I like my new shop too, but really miss my walk in, lots of space, nicely ducted basement back in Boston. I hope you enjoy that shop Dan. Its really sweet! What is that table you have sitting there – looks like a nice prtoject – but I don’t understand the router cutout. Is it meant to be a work station? From the initial look it looks more like a piece of furniture – a nice one too. Maybe you are taking an old table and repurposing. It will make a very nice router table if that is the plan! I have a Jess’em router lift in my Sawstop extension and I love it.
