I thought I'd take a moment to show you my little Southwest GA workshop. Yes...this is redneck to a great extent, but it's better than nothing, which is what I had before
First, allow me to show you my find workshop from the outside. This is one of the finest workshops one can purchase at one's local Wal-Mart:
Yes...it really came from Wal-Mart. It's nestled into a corner on my back porch. The wall jutting across the back is the wall between my back porch and the adjoining back porch. However, since one half of this duplex is mine, and the other is my Mom's, I don't have to worry about the neighbors getting annoyed
Now I take you inside to show you my fancy workbench. Yes, this took me a grand total of 12 minutes to put together.
I had to tote the boards all the way from the front of the house to the BACK! Yes, that was a time consuming process! However, one bench is never truly enough. Now, I present to you my "fancified" bench!
Yep, the good old Black & Decker Workmate. It's my primary work holding tool at this point!
And, I have a security system as well! Yes, a high tech and take-no-prisoners security system:
That's my dog Sierra. She's a sweetie to us...but to those who aren't supposed to be around? She can be vicious!
Seriously, this is what I'm starting with. Most of my tools are handheld power tools or hand tools. I plan on getting bench top power tools instead of full stationary models simply because they have to be put away. The exception being the bandsaw I hope to get. It'll be the work horse of this shop.
So, I hope you enjoyed the tour, and if nothing else, I hope it makes you thankful for walls
