So, for the last few years, @Okuma and I have shared an office. It’s been fun, and half of the space has served as my shop for the last few months. Well, the fun is coming to an end now (bittersweet), but it will be saving us both a lot of money per month. This leaves me with no shop, since my house doesn’t have a basement (or even a garage for that matter). I did purchase a 10x16 shed about six years ago. Here she was when she was brand new. I’ve wanted to run power to it pretty much since the beginning, but it hasn’t happened. Of course it eventually got filled with all my stuff (lawnmower, tools, etc). Cleaned and reorganized a few times, but it always ended up cluttered. Fast forward to six months ago, when I decided I wanted to start building guitars. I had my shop area at my office for the woodworking, etc, but no place to spray them. I figured I’d use my shed to do that, so I bought a sprayer setup and another shed to hold all my crap. That leaves me with my cleaned out shed that’s ready for power, which is awesome, but of course now it’ll be used as my main shop, and at 160 sq ft it’s tiny! Last week I measured all the essential tools I’ll need and I made a scale drawing with scale cutouts of the tools. The verdict is that it’ll be tight, but I think it’ll work! Check it out: So all of the tools will be on casters, so I can move them to the center of the space when I need to use them. I think I’ll control dust with a simple shop vac on a shelf with a long hose to hook up to whatever tool I’m using. The interesting one that isn’t in the photo is a buffer I’ll need to mount up on some kind of pulley system so I can lower it only when I need it. That should be fun to build. Since the flooring isn’t that great, I’m going to double up the plywood and probably put a vapor barrier under the new plywood. I’ll also need to insulate the walls and roof (probably with just batt rolls from HD). And I’ll probably put a set of real steel entry doors on it that I’ll find on CL. Also considered heating the floor, but I’m leaning toward keeping it simple and just mounting my indoor propane heater to the wall. Any thoughts on tiny shops? I’m really excited about it actually. Hoping it’ll turn out nicely.
