Shop Tours

My first woodworking project was to make a shop in the two car garage.

Pull out peg boards organize my hand tools.  Since I do have weekend help from men I have LABELLED where things go!  I used drawer glides and peg boards pull outs. 
My router table is mounted on the end of my table saw.  The router cart rolls under it to hold bits, jigs, router pieces and parts.  Very convenient!
Paint and finish cabinet is built in with a door on wheels.  It can be locked to keep kids and dogs out.
One end of the labelled cabinets holds my fine wood working hand tools and cases that organize screws and other hardware bits.  The tape is on a wooden curtain rod.  Both work benches are on wheels. In fact all of the shop features are on wheels except two build in cupboards.  I can mocing eveything out to clean and reorganize.
Saw cabinet provides outfeed to the table saw and holds anything that cuts.  A Sand cabinet is similar but the leaves that extend the top give room for sanding long pieces.  These two carts are the same height and can be used side by side for more work surface.

I had rudimentary tools and skills when I first made my shop but years later and most of the way through a major kitchen remodel it has served me well.  The pleasure is in the details to keep me organized.

Also the wardrobe with paints is good. I am not pro, but just a small remark: for security purposes, the professionals do not advise making a wooden storage for paints, because they usually contain or are accompanied with highly flammable substances. Consequently it should be made of steel sheets. A good extinguisher is advised as well. I intend to buy one for my workshop too.
