photos of your shop thread?

I can't find the thread that had photos of people's work areas.

I took a picture of mine this weekend. My workbench probably weighs about 1,500 pounds and is permanently anchored in place. You can see one of the work surfaces in the background. It's a little too narrow and the tool well is way too deep. My sharpening station is to the left of the bench. The plate in the foreground was for my lunch.

Ya' gotta' start somewhere. Any change is likely to be an improvement. :-)

Dumb idea:
Replace the round metal table with a sturdy rectangular patio table that can serve double duty as a workbench for gluing, sanding, assembly, etc. Make sure the underside of the top is suitable for clamping your work down without visible damage to the table. Cover the table with cheap lightweight hardboard to protect it when you are doing woodworking. (Drill two small holes in table corners so you can use pins or nails to keep the hardboard from moving around.) You could make or buy rolling carts to fit underneath to hold tools and supplies. Put away the hardboard top and the carts when guests come to visit, unless they are woodworkers. :-)

P.S. Here is the shop thread:

I have a 4x4 sheet of plywood that I lay across sawhorses when I need it.



A big plus is that there's no need for dust control or sweeping up afterward. The wind and rain take care of that every couple weeks.

I usually work on the floor. I've got 7 work benches but they are all too full to use.
