Default My Escape, under used.

I only have a small shed. 2 small one's to be truthful. The one with the water tank is the stil shed, the tank is part of the cooling system for the stil. The bigger shed opens up and I do a lot of the work outside. One day will make a ramp so I can wheel the table saw out.

The table router is a GMC present from wife. Dusty but used well.

Work bench was entirely free and unbolts into 9 pieces. Moved into a house a while back that was beside a small hardware shop that closed the day I moved in. While it was being demolished, I was told I could grab what I wanted. Old floor boards make a great bench top. The sled on the table saw was designed with knowledge gained from routerforums.com a little while ago.

Due to the shortage of room, I feel I have made good use of the ceiling. Ladders and trolley raised by bike hanging pully system from ALDI. Air conditioning are 2 unused floor fans bent and hung upside down. Works a wonder.

A place for everything and everything in it's place. No matter how much space you have it never seems to be enough does it.

A belated welcome to the forum, James.

I missed your post while I was on holiday.

Will study your photos when I get a chance - they seem to take a while to download...

Default The workshop with a deck.

Took a while but getting there. Finally the new band saw turned up. Had to make heaps of room to unpack by carrying storage boxes and table saw outside.

Then a light bulb while watching one on my favorite comedy skits..

Now I have a deck (still to add 2 more boards in the photos but now done) on my workshop. Luved it when my wife jumped on it Wasn't sure what to do when the daughter jumped on it and yelled out "I'm jumping on dads deck". Got pissed off when some birds shat on my freshly oiled deck.

But look at the results. Both table and band saw can now be used under the mighty Queensland sun. Mobile is a prototype. Eventually I would like to put a couple of draws between the wheels and the saw.

Two new additions to the shed, wood rack and more storage on the back of the door.

Just saw your August post, James.

How are you going with that band saw.

I have the same model.
