    My Tiny Shop

    OK while it is somewhat clean, I took a few pictures.

    This is coming in the door.


    Here is my storage cabinet. Mounted to the wall with doors to keep the muddawbers out.


    Under the wall mount.


    Router bit, feather board and the like storage. These have 4 sides and rotate. 9"-4" of board in a 5' space.


    Under that is router storage and joint type storage. Router are like clamps, you can never have enough.

    Here is my table saw and assembly table, with a long shot of the shop.


    My wood storage rack and plane, jointer.


    One last one. This is sander and saws. it is under the long bench on the left as you enter the door. This is the first to be ripped out and replaced with a miter saw station.

    Wow. You have a lot going on in a small space. Very well put together. Looking good.

    P.s. No fair cleaning up before taking pictures. . . .

    Hey, just because your shop is cleaner than the average hospital kitchen doesn't mean ours are that way. I'm pretty sure I read on the Intarwebs somewhere about a study of hens and roosters in Missouri where 94% of the young hens were attracted to roosters that kept somewhat cluttered (but still organized) woodshops. So that proves that chicks dig messy shops.

    I am a pretty big fan of the yellow stuff. Never had a lot of problems with them.

    Nice job on the organization front Steve.


    Sure wish I could get mine organized, but it's like an episode of Hoarders out there.

    Right now I have a 12x28 with an "L" 11x5. So that gives me 391 sq ft to work with. The key is patience and wheels. Everything must have wheels. If I remember correct, I have more room than you Don.
