My Loft Workshop

Here are a few picture of my loft workspace where I spend most of my spare time, tinkering with electronic things and making things. I took the pictures after I had cleaned it out so don't think that I can keep it that tidy all of the time with the amount of things I do. The workshop is in my loft which hasn't got a reinforced floor so I am quite limited to what tools I can put up there, however, a trusty hand saw, power drill and a few other tools are all I need as I am more interested in electronics than woodwork. As the loft is also used to store Christmas decorations and other things, I can only use the storage space that I have currently. Although I am limited in quite a few ways, I still like it up in my loft. Unfortunately, I live in the UK so I am not eligible for the Craftsman contest which I found out after publishing the slideshow and adding it to the competition, so I removed from the competition it but kept the slideshow.

    That is what I would call "safe organization". Never trust a professional "anyone" if he/she has a very neat work area. What I mean is this, a person has way to much time on their hands because they have very few customer so they keep busy by clean up.

    I'm not talking about work area safety, I mean tools are clean and put away, no Speedy-Dri (oil absorbent clay removal product used by auto mechanics), on the floor, no dirty finger or hand prints Anywhere, an up-to-date calender, no hair on the barber/stylist floor.

    When shops are supposed to have a curtain amount of work related debris and has none, than you have to wonder how good this person really is.

    This is awesome. I wish I would've had the gall to do something that awesome when I was younger; I think I would've been a happier kid :D.

    Stay cool man! And if it were me, I'd put 2 more things in your lofty workshop:

    1. Plastic, to keep the nice fiberglass in the insulation where it belongs
    and
    2. A small hammock... just cause it seems like a fun idea.

     Yes I got the computer free from my mum's work as they clear out their IT equipment and upgrade it every 5 years or so.

    Wow, great use of small space! I have half a garage to work in, and it's a mess! I would be happy working there too.
