This year no holidays planned because of covid-19. So this is a good opportunity to update my workshop (aka my garage).
Apart from woodworking, developing software and programming I also like to read and draw comics. My collection of comic books and related stuff needed to move away to the garage. I therefore wanted to make a few drawers which keep dust out of the drawers.
Furthermore I wanted easier access to my woodworking tools. Finally I wanted something against the wall towards my neighbours for some extra sound insulation.
Finally I needed some space to put down a printer (and hopefully a future 3D printer).
Since I cannot move stuff out of the garage, I have to shift everything around and little by little build everything.
Below the first stretch of new closets:
Behind my workbench there is now a little more space to put down stuff. Right behind my workbench is a tool cabinet. To the left some drawers for my comics books and space for a printer and 3D printer.
The panels in the closet doors are acrylic, such that I can see what is being printer.
Behind the workbench and on top of the closets there is space to store wood.
The tool cabinet provides space for my most used tools:
Where most of the closet is made with cheap pine, the tool cabinet is made with maple and mahogany. I especially like the holder for my Stanley Rebate plane.
Another update is the additional of a cyclone with bucket to prevent most of the wood dust and chips entering my vacuum cleaner. I got fed up with cleaning the filter the whole time. This is one of those things I should have done a lot earlier. It safes so much work.
