I have a shared shop at my buddy’s house 3 miles away from my house. This is where my larger tools are: bandsaw, cabinet saw, radial arm, etc…

I do most of my woodworking in my carport lately. I have a power miter box, delta model 9 contractors saw I restored, routers, hand tools, power tools, etc.

I have built a large roll around storage work bench but need to get more organized and have a better workflow.

Has anyone been relegated to the carport? If so, do you have pictures of your setup?

I can use one wall that is brick about 16 feet long and about 2 feet deep. (I will have to account for a 40lb. propane tank that runs the range on the other side of the wall) And I will have a separate wall about 6 feet long that I can go two feet out from as well.

Finally, there is a storage room on the carport that measures 50” x 11’ with a 10 foot ceiling that desperately needs organization.

Thanks for all your help!

Linn worked in her carport in Oregon for several years.
You can search through her video collection for ideas.
