This is my basement workshop that usually has 2 or 3 projects going at once (OK maybe 10 to 12 but who's counting). Most of my power tools were salvaged and either repaired or completely rebuilt. As you can tell from the pictures my interests are across the board. I am also very lucky to have a comfortable room attached to the workshop for relaxation. My best thinking and planning is done in there with my assistant Hardy the dog.
Very nice. I have been working on my basement for the last three years, and I am almost at completion (a basement is never really complete). like yours, i've combined both workspace and relaxation space.

What kind of junk art do you do? Can you post some pics?

Whoah, sweeeeet! You have sooo many things, but they're all arranged really nicely! Currently my mum's renting a place, but next year we're buying a nice place with a SHED.
So then I shall be able to compile all my things, and I hope I end up with a place liked yours!
Yeah, that would be nice for me too.. :-)
This is creepy, you end up saying something on most of my comments, oh well I'm not complaining.
Haha, okay, I will stop then...
What!?! No, don't do that, listening to a Plasmana's advice is like Confucius Says, but better!
Okay...
...How is it that I end up saying strange things like that all the time without meaning to?

Not the best way to store motherboards but I guess it works :) Nice work shop

Thanks for the nice comments. I cut up the motherboards to make things like key chains and magnets.

I bet they would make some nice "nerd" watches or full size wall clocks

Oh wow... If I had that much stuff it would be an absolute mess! Congratulations for keeping it tidy, and for winning the first Show Your Space contest!

It isn't always that neat I try to clean up at least once a week. I am very excited to see what I won! I have some projects that I hope to post soon. I have been visiting Instructables for a long time and thought it was time to start contributing.
