Do you love making arts and crafts? Are you a carpenter who works frequently in a shop setting? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may dream of having a shop at home so that you can work at your discretion and on your own time. The good news is, this is a totally attainable thing. With some elbow grease, ingenuity and the help of these tips, you’ll be on your way to having the shop of your dreams in your Stephenville, Texas home’s garage.
One of the first things you’re going to want to think about is the space you’ll be working in. Workbenches usually run from $100 to $500, according to online real estate and home design platform houselogic.com. However, if you want to get in the spirit of working before your shop is done, you can certainly build your own workbench. There are several free and affordable workbench plans on the web. Making your own workbench shouldn’t take longer than a day and can be quite a bit more affordable than buying one, plus you can customize your workbench to your specificities if you build one. After the workbench situation is remedied, make room for all of the tools you’re going to be using. If this means powertools, then you’ll need to have a designated space for each one that includes not just room for the machine, but room to work safely.
Now that you’ve given your workspace some thought, it’s time to think about organization and storage. Having a place for all of your hand tools and materials is important not only just because a clean shop looks better, but it’s also safer and makes it easier to find things when they have a specific place that they go. Several storage solutions can be used for different aspects of your shop. A wall-mounted hand tool rack can be a great space-saving solution, and so can a well-organized tool chest.
