This is my workshop. I had it built 10yrs ago when we bought our house.  It's a 21" x 24" Tuff Shed. I have just about everything I need to attempt any project.  Still trying to make good use of space, but after 10 yrs of acquiring tools and things, It is getting a bit cramped.
My goal after working in my garage for years, was to some day have all the machinery plugged in and ready to use. I don't miss working in a garage.
I'd miss working in my <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/My-Mixed-Media-Garage/" rel="nofollow">garage</a>. Your workshop is bigger, but isn't as well appointed. In your quest to plug everything in you seem to have ignored a lot of little details I enjoy. Things like ceilings. Your whole shop is probably insulated like a paper cup.<br> <br> But let's discuss things you can do something about. The first thing I'd address would be that scrap of pegboard you've hanging up by your chop saw. Now I'm not saying you should make a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9QaFTI2F9c" rel="nofollow">Studley tool chest</a> but do something <a href="http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/3185/p8080004.jpg" rel="nofollow">a bit more substantial</a>.<br> <br> I've posted an article on this site that'd go some way toward eliminating that junk:<br> <br> For your files:<br> <br> <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Wrench-Organizer/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Wrench-Organizer/</a><br> <br> I never did post this, but I should have:<br> <br> <a href="http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/6656/driverhold.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/6656/driverhold.jpg</a><br> <br> I still haven't gotten around to it myself yet but a tape station is nice:<br> <br> <a href="http://images.meredith.com/wood/images/164issuepreview/tapestogo_bg.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://images.meredith.com/wood/images/164issuepreview/tapestogo_bg.jpg</a><br> <br> That warped roll of duck tape you've hanging there is pretty sad! If you made those tape dispensers you could use your beat hacksaw blades for something decent too. heh<br> <br> I'm curious, what did your clamps do so bad that you've made them sit in the corner? You walk all the way over there whenever you need one? Try to get them closer to your workbench, where you probably use them.<br> <br> How about <a href="http://i.imgur.com/VannV.jpg" rel="nofollow">a real out feed table</a> to go along with your autographed picture of Norm? He has one you know. I'm on my second. I doubt he has his because he couldn't afford roller stands like you have either.<br> <br> That is enough for now. I'm sure more will come to me eventually, something always does!<br>
Wow! Bigger than my whole apartment!!!!!!! I wish!
how much did it cost to build it got to be a couple of grand.
Yes! It was a bit more than a couple grand. I wanted to show my shop inside not necessarily the building. Although it was built to be a workshop.
That is a nice shop that you have there I only wish that I had that much space to work in my shop is 12' x 12' with 2 12'x 12' over hangs to store outside equipment and such in one and an outside workbench to handle larger projects and be out of the hot sun. Keep up the good work I love the entertainment center that you made. Kudos to your daughter for the cute little shelf she made for &quot;her&quot; toolbox.<br>Again Nice Job<br>Dan<br>
Thanks! I like the idea of an outdoor workspace. It would be nice to be able to work outside with a nice breeze.
Man, That is beautiful set-up. &quot;1st year hubby&quot; here dreaming of a garage like this.
I'm so jealous! Love your shop! Nice post, thanks!
Awsome shop i could only dream of
Enjoyed seeing your workshop. Lots of good ideas. Your entertainment center is quite impressive as well. I bet you have one heck of a honey-do list!
This is extremely impressive! I would be thrilled if i had a workshop like yours.<br>Oh, and your dog is cute too!
