Show us your workshop


Since I'm a curious fellow (and a workshop nerd), I'd love to see photos of everyone's work area, especially how it's laid out and what tools and equipment are in it. Doesn't matter how big or small. Let's see 'em!

Well, since you asked . . . The individual photos were taken while I was preparing the shop for some old chemistry lab floor and wall cabinets that were taken from a local high school chemistry lab. The school was being closed down. The shop was in disarray at this point. The photo montage (.PDF file) is a more recent set of photos that were taken after the shop was re-arranged and cleaned up. Also, the table saw is different. I now have an Austrian manufactured 12" table saw with a ball bearing sliding table. Not shown is a new MIG welder.

Excellent workshop. I love seeing a lifetime's worth of collected tools.

My shop consists of a fold-able table in the dining room with a piece of MDF on top. I have a few xactos a utility knife, a sharpener, a few items for hole and circle cutting, and template material. That's about it, nothing fancy.

Got Foam?

I won't be building any giant scale planes on it but that old scaffold and 36" interior door taking up space in the garage does make one heck of a nice bench for making foamies...
Not shown are the other two folding tables full of supplies on the opposite walls.

The top of my workbench is also made out of a door. Salvaged it from all the remodeling I've done to the house. Works great.

My garage houses most of the major tools and work surfaces, but I have a separate room in the house set aside for the soldering/wiring/intricate bits. Works out really well.

Those hanging bins on the first pic look pretty handy. What did you replace them with?

That's a great post. I figured there had to be another one out there somewhere. Love seeing the level of obsession people go with their workshops. I'd love to see a CNC machine in mine.
