    I like your conversion. In fact, it gives me the courage to continue on my quest for a more organized tiny workshop.

    Well done accomodating all that equipment into a seemingly small space, I have a similar problem, my workshop is just 6ft x 8ft x 6ft 2" high, 4ft square floorspace, is amazing how we adapt through determination, I even crammed in a woodburner - to help alleviate the damp problem, (don't tell the missus that I keep most of my material stock indoors in the loft). Nothing can keep us from producing. Some people are so compact that I've seen workshops inside kitchen cupboards!

    Oh OK cool thanks. I thought you were like some kind of a wild carver or something there for a minute. The scaled images on this site make it difficult to understand just exactly what I'm looking at.
