    Nice looking shop you've got there Brad. You've just convinced me to finally video my set-up.

    (PS, I think too much tension, and too much pressure is your issue with the bandsaw, as you pointed out.)

    Cheers,

    Just built our first home and moved in last September. Got a 4m x 3m workshop space at the back of the double garage with a little nook near the door, perfect spot for my workbench. Knocked it up over the Xmas break using scrap roofing pine from the skip. Benchtop is 2500x800 particle board flooring with a sheet of sacrificial Masonite on top.

    To do list: peg board for the tools, shelving on the walls and under the RHS of the bench, more power points, some lighting directly above and a bar stool so I can sit down and work on the fiddly stuff.

    One day list: secret arsenal that motors down from the ceiling at the push of a button.

    Cray,

    That looks like a nice little work area you've got yourself there. I'm liking the way that you're thinking with the stool and light etc. May I also suggest a small LED desk lamp as well. I picked one up from Big W for about $10, and it's been a major bonus to a lot of fiddly work.

    Oh, btw guys, this thread can't be necro'd.

    Cheers,

    Wow all of you have such complicated work areas I just use a table, I don't think I'd be able to work in such a messy environment, I'm a total neat freak.

    I'm a little confused with your definition of messy... or maybe you missed my workshop...

    Untidy work areas always lead to lost parts and wasted time looking for tooling.

    Cheers,

    This is my work area, which is also my entire room. I'm in a dorm so you work with that you got. It's usually a loooot cleaner than this, but with two major tests just today and AnachroCon this weekend I haven't had much time to clean. Streampunk stuff is just lying around everywhere, as are tools and bits and parts that usually go neatly in their prescribed drawers, and the AMR-B15 can be seen on my dresser as I look for a buyer and/or ship it home for general storage. Suitcase for travel and shows, scotch for... well, for having scotch on hand, office supplies... The other half of the room has my paint area, which consists of a bunch of sprayed pizza boxes and a couples shelves of hand and spray paints and a ton of different brushes, plus my parts bin. Seriously, I'm working with what I got, here. >.> BUT THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS, DAMMIT.

    The fact that you do your work in that sort of area makes it even more amazing. Most of us have a lot more than dorm to do our mods in, and yours are superior to many. Great job.

    Dad's and mine working area


    Both benches were handmade by him, this one from a series of industrial size pallets. The brewing stuff is his hobby... for now! My personal hand tools/materials for modding are in the blue toolbox.


    In action!


    In the shelves by the door, there are numerous power tools. Don't knock the bandsaw or drillpress, they may be old, but they costed less than $100 each and work absolutely fine.


    The disc sander on this has been invaluable for sooo many mods. +1 to anyone who can either give me the brand or what it's called!
