Oregon, where they have trees.
This basically is a thread about what the title says.

Post up your photos and ideas for the perfect shop building.

Low priced efficient builds, space management, different materials and techniques, etc.,etc.,etc.

Hopefully my shop will be started sometime this year and I will try to do photos and stuff.
It will probably be around a 24x36x14 with some overhead storage in part of it. Size may go thru a few revisions, not really sure yet.
Been threatening to do this for a number of years now and it seems like I need to just go ahead start.

Weird Uncle Willie's basement
I'll post pics of my work area tomorrow when I get out there. It ain't much, just a corner I have cleaned out in my barn.


I am looking for ideas on a small rolling type of workbench. I have two 36" solid wood doors that need a use for something. (Used one for my workbench already). I have two left.

I used to build pole barns.I said it every time.Couple a years later,I'm back putting on lean tos.
Well this really depends on where I locate it.
My first location choice may be able to do 28 wide but it will be close.
My second location choice could do almost any width I want but its a bit farther from the house then I want to be.

If you use to build these goofy things, do you have any plans you'd be willing to sell me?
I need to get my itemized list together and it would be way easier for me if I had plans in front of me.
Don't know what my problem is but I just can't sit still long enough to do it.

Man, I'd like to have that much space. What are you going to work on? Welding, cabinet making, auto repair, machine shop, engines?

You said you couldn't sit still. I thought perhaps you had fleas. Or sand crabs.

I'm just here to help. :)
That was helpful. I will get that checked out.
Thank you for the help.:wave:
Silly Cow, you have fleas and ticks, birds have mites...

On the shop size, design what you think you need and then add at least 25% more is what a smart man told me one time.
