After many years of MDF and 2x4 benches, I started into construction on the FWW Not-so-big Workbench.

Compromise on the scale of the work - the dining room table and the kitchen cabinets will have to wait.
Not a good place to do finish work; a great place to kill off some of those pesky brain cells, though. WoodworkerBill writes: I'm surprised at Ckirstieshopteacher's comment about running the workpiece between the router bit and the fence to true the edge of a bandsawn board.
It only takes 30 seconds to roll it over, lift it off its dolly & set it up on a workbench, assembly table, or tablesaw when I need it.
Oh well, enough rambling, We did enjoy stopping in Pittsburgh a couple of years ago on the way home, enjoyed the Dusquene incline at about 11pm, did get lost in a not so nice neighborhood, but all went well. Perhaps someday those of us in the area should get together to share some Pittsburgh-style workshop issues, solutions and stories.


Looking for "found space", I have installed cleats across the overhead floor joists for lumber and long pipe clamp storage. Could you provide some more details about how you expanded the electrical capability of the shop? Of all of the benefits you mentioned, I believe the proximity to the rest of the family and ease of access to kitchen and facilities is the best part. I hung stuff all over my shop trying to fill all wall space and every corner (even ceiling corners). My last suggestion is to re-look at getting that garage rebuilt, reworked, or at least some usable space (finsh area?). Most often it's sharpening, but I also use it for drilling, holding bench hooks and shooting boards and occassionally as a chop-saw station.
I thought I was cramped until I read your article, and now realize that at 15' x 18' I am fortunate. I see that you have finished ceilings, but perhaps you could create removable panels in a couple of areas and utilize the joist space. It is easier to duck downstairs for little bit than it was to go out to my garage at my previous house.


All I have are the videos to go by but Ed states in the videos "refer to the plans for dimensions". Something I might include would be to maybe place each tool on wheels and make it so you can "slide" the tool into place and share the same surface for all cuts, trims and what have you. I have a few more square feet(about 15), but share the short headspace and basement location. To keep it sawdust-free & out of the way, I put a plastic cleaner bag over it & roll it in under my jointer (or shove it to a different unused corner when I fire up the jointer).
I share my woodworking space with the washer and dryer, a heat and air system, yard and garden tools etc. I'm still busy building my own Not-So-Big-Workbench's final home--converting my basement into a fully-operational shop that will do the little bench justice. Re-painted with custom maple and walnut handles made by my 18 year old neighbor, a wizard at his lathe.
