Welcome to the picture tour of my workshop! For the last three years my shop has been in the basement of my house. Before moving it into my basement, my shop was in the old, decrepit single-car garage. There were too few outlets, the lighting was poor, and it was freezing in the winter and much too hot in the summer.
My shop isn’t very big, it takes up roughly half of my basement and is in the process of shrinking further in order to make room for a bathroom. The space is in the shape of a “T”, with the widest area being about 12′ and the narrowest area about 8′. The overall length is just shy of 18′, but again, it is going to be smaller.
The space has seen multiple iterations and will continue to morph and evolve over time as I discover what I like and don’t like. Another factor will be what I am using the space for, as I also want to learn more electrical and plumbing work. At least when it comes to storage, these tasks will need some space of their own in the shop.
For the most part the pictures are in order from what you see coming down my basement stairs, starting with the left wall and proceeding around the room. I will do my best to provide information that may be of interest and to explain where I got certain ideas. If you have any questions or comments, be sure to leave them in the comment section below. Let’s get this tour started!
Thank you for taking a look around my shop, I know the pictures aren’t the best quality, but I did the best I could. The lighting isn’t the best down there, just two sets of fluorescent lights, and I might look to upgrade it in the future. I am also thinking about making a video of the shop because I figure it might give a more clear picture of how everything is arranged and of the general layout. Well, thanks again, have a great day!
