    by AlpineButterfly

    Usually,  I tackle a project by recognizing a need, and then go about problem solving. In this case, I had a want... and it took me a few minutes to realize it was also a perfect solution! I fell in love with a small arts and crafts style desk at a local auction. But I couldn't really justify bu…

    Without a garage or basement shop area, I have to intersperse project supplies among...pretty much everything else. Fortunately, I have landlords that don't mind occasionally hearing a drill or sander late at night.

    by btmarney

    I waited two loooong years to begin this project.  When I was ready to start the first time, I found that it was directly over my drain field.  Of course, I could have redesigned my septic sytem, right?  Well, the City informed me that sewers were coming in two years.  To hook up to the sewer was…

    Here are some photos of my workspace for the Share Your Space Contest. It's a bit modest since I live in a one bedroom condo. Instead of a shed, studio or workshop to work in I use my living room coffee table, dining room table and kitchen counter. The coffee table is great to work on since it …

    Welcome to my world - what used to be an stonebuilt outside toilet and coal store (common to my part of the world) has now been 'upgraded' to my workspace. This is an old pic, I've since managed to shoehorn in a small bandsaw... seriously!

    The room where It all started. My first instructable that has multiplied into more than 180 different instructables. Also the room I have been given the most grief. People might have realised there is a lot of time effort and materials that go into the projects. It would have been a bit nicer if …

    by Creativeman

    I have made several of these benches over the years, and it was always the first thing I made when moving into a new house. I like to be organized, and figured it didn't hurt to make it look attractive as well. Basic woodworking skills and the tools that that requires are necessary for a project …

    After 10 years collecting stuff and making stuff I decided it was time to clean up my workspace. So it's never been this clean before and, although it's not completely finished yet, I'm very pleased with the results and even can walk trough it without stumbling over stuff. Aaah, what a relief!

    For several years in a row we stupidly invested in expensive pre-feb screen rooms for buggy summer evenings. None of them survived through the next season. We decided to build our own. The original idea was a very simple screened in structure, but we managed to save a ton of money by purchasing s…

    by friger

    I am spoiled, I admit it, I have a winter and summer shop to play with. I still need to get better organized in both places, and perhaps develop better habits, such as putting things away after I use them. But that's an argument my wife and I have frequently. The Summer shop does have some heat …

    I have two main workspaces.  The first is my shop, which is primarily equipped for metal working, but I also do quite a bit of woodworking there as well.  The second workspace is the office in my home, where most of the design takes place.  I'll begin with the shop's workspace.
