“Fortress of Wooditude” – Shop Tour

Shop Tour -
Added on September 10, 2008

This week’s shop comes from AlIen in OH who says,

“I just want to share some pictures of my tiny little “Fortress of Wooditude.”Ã?  I had never actually measured my space to see exactly what I had, so I got out the tape measure and… 190 square feet. Not a lot, but enough for my needs. It would of course be nice to have enough room for a real workbench, to not have to move the planer every time I want to use it and to have a dedicated finishing area but really, I can’t complain. At least I can lock the doors and keep my wife and her scrapbooking stuff out. ;-)”

“Before moving here I had never heard of a “tandem” two-car garage but they are apparently common in older houses in my part of Cincinnati. Since parking end-to-end was a logistical nightmare where someone was always having to back their car out to let the other person exit we used the back half for storage of lawn equipment, snowblower, etc. I put a shed in the back yard and went to work setting up shop. Space is really tight, but I got everything in. Everything, with the exception of the jointer, is on wheels.”
