I've had this workshop since the early '90s and just recently cleaned it up and started working with wood again. It's something I really enjoy doing and since I've become disabled, it's a good way to pass the time. I still need a few more tools and a lot more space, but it will do for now. If you have any suggestions for a better layout, please let me know.

Thanks for looking.

Ah ! … This power tools shelf with the boxes under for the cords is simply a brilliant idea !!!…

Next spring I hope to install a very small workshop in my basement : if I can find a way to adapt the idea be sure I will !…
thank you

It's the simple things that make a person feel stupid, like the tool tool bins.  They are so easy to make and get a LOT of use over the years.  It is surprising the number of people who don't have them in their shop.

Your's  look like they do the job very nicely, Gary!  Good looking too.  So often I make things like that and it never gets painted.  LOL

Nice setup. Ditto on the cubbyholes. Why didn't I think of that? I've been building my little garage workshop over the last few months. Powertool cubbyholes just moved to the top of my list. Thanks for the pictures and the great idea. - Chris

I like the cubby holes for the power tools. I'll have to do that in my place.

Thanks for the comment. It works out nice for keeping the cords organized as well as housing all of the pieces and parts for the tools.
