My workshop consists of four areas: electronics, mechanics, storage and chemistry. It is not big or well equipped but I can get my projects done in it. It took me few years to equip my workshop and I am still not done (main reasons for that are: high cost of equipment and location of workshop).

This area is still in progress. Right now I am building laboratory power supply (wooden box in pictures). Plan is to equip my workshop with measuring instruments and better soldering stations. But what I got right know is good enough. There is also a computer and stereo on site, mainly for entertainment and for researching for project. Workshop is covered with Wi-Fi hotspot.

I believe that in this area is not much space to have more than I got. On workbench you can see boring machine, saw, clamp in light, all mounted to workbench. Tools and some of the materials are stored on shelves on workbench. Tools are standard: hammer, screw drivers, pliers, knifes, etc. Somewhere in this mess there is battery powered boring machine and in the storage area there is small grinder.

I think that storage area is the most equip one of all. Drovers, containers, cable rack, etc. where were pretty cheap, most of them are homemade. In boxes on lower shelves I keep old devices, parts and materials for future projects. In red drovers I keep all the electronics parts (resistors, capacitors, ICs, etc.). In blue drover I keep screws and some other small mechanical pieces. I also got here an oscilloscope. It is old, in need of calibrations, but it can still kick ass!

I am keeping everything that involves chemicals (cleaning solutions, etching chemicals, etc.) in plastic closet. I keep all that in plastic in case of chemical leaking (plastic is more resistant to acids than metal or wood). It is not much to see in that closet.
nice and neat.thx
Awesome use of space and a nice looking workshop!
stowed for the first time! well done :D
heh :D I knew you'll comment bro...
