    The "What's your shop look like?" thread

    Just redid my garage with a new work bench and some cabinets. It's tight, but I've got some good workspace now. Garage is about 10' x 20'

    How come there's a different pin-up girl in the second pic than in the first?

    I took the picture yesterday on the first. I wasn't sure who'd notice. Ha!

    Those are work issue calendars too!

    My shop is a tool box, stand and my living room (so I can watch football (soccer) whilst I work). Nothing as cool as above though

    I built myself a beautiful shop 4 years ago with nice lighting, benches, peg board and shelves. Then I filled it with projects and other crap and now I have to gently tippy-toe to get to the drill press. Not bragging, just sending a warning to others.

    Here is my home bike shop. Currently still under construction, but its getting there. I still need to complete the shelving and get my tools mounted. I purchased another Craftsman 4 drawer tool box for the bottom right side of the lower base. Additionally i have a Feedback Sports bike stand and single arm truing stand. This is in my garage, so it serves as my bike shop, classic mini restoration shop, golf club storage...and apparently storage for whatever my wife and children do not want to put away...

    My shop is my dining room table most of the time. Sometimes it's the kitchen counter. Once in awhile it's in the spare bedroom/junk room with my stuff spread out on top of the huge dog kennel we don't use anymore. One of these days I'll build myself a proper shop...something 20x20ish would be nice. Room to fit the tools, bikes, mini fridge, TV, and a recliner.

    Everything looks great except for the Saints magnet on the fridge. I'd be happy to send you a Panthers logo to replace it with.

    Thanks manning, the cabinets use misc bike parts as pulls on the doors and drawers. Derailleur pulleys, cowbells, old derailleurs, grips. Cleaned out the old parts bin in the process. I knew I saved that stuff for something

    Ha, thanks but no thanks ncfisherman. You probably wouldn't care much for the rest of the basement then. Just a sample........

    Re: The "What's your shop look like?" thread

    This thread inspired me to continue with my never - ending garage project. We're renting though, so I don't want to get too carried away. I especially don't want to invest a bunch of my own $$ into someone else's house

    The basement....

    Here is my contribution. There was a finished room in the basement of the place we are renting so I claimed it as the bike room! Win for me. Now I just need a recliner and a flat screen down there! My favorite part is that the grey stand was a freebie picked up behind the dumpster at work

    I'm drooling on the suspension forks, I need a new one. I purchased for cheap a Rockshox U-Turn. Kind of heavy. But for $50 it's ok. Some one had stuck Fox stickers on the legs. Was listed as a Fox. that's why I was able to whittle the price down. they didn't really know what they had.

    I just started straightening up my basement space today to get my shop into a more serviceable condition for the winter. Planning to overhaul one of the bikes this winter, and building a new one up just before, so I need to organize myself better.

    Here's what it looked like last winter.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/8007861@N04/10714905173" title="Basement Workshop by Nate, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5534/10714905173_acd1b2b35a_m.jpg" width="240" height="160" alt="Basement Workshop"></a>

    I have more crap in there now, of course....and lots of stuff behind the photographer in the above pics that was never organized, anyway.

    I added this last winter, too.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/8007861@N04/15558852880" title="bar table by Nate, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3952/15558852880_9ed46d20d5_m.jpg" width="240" height="135" alt="bar table"></a>

    I need a couple of bar stools for it.

    I bought some more shelving and organized a bunch of stuff to add to the usable floor space today. My goals moving forward this winter are a couple. First, get my peg board up so I can organize the tools I use most often. Second, I need more workspace. I have a second work bench that won't fit into the basement because it has a tall back (pegboard is built in). I think I've decided to cut the back off and mount the pegboard to the wall separately so I can get the bench into the basement. Once I get the second work bench down there, I'll have space to mount my vise. Finally, I need more bike storage space. I only have 3 rack slots for bikes right now, and I have 4 bikes, with a 5th one due within the month. I think to maximize space, I'm going to need to add some slots on the wall. Maybe a 2 bike rack that leans against the wall, or a couple vertical ones that bolt to the wall. It's all masonry, though, and I'd rather not drill a bunch more holes in it than are already there.

    This is just my main storage room, I have a few other bikes in the living room..

    Sadly now my bikes live in the garage (even if I have more space) this racks fit 21 bikes, so far I have only 17 on them (fatbike on the floor), works pretty well but I have to confess 8" in between hocks is a lot less than 9" in terms of getting the bike out..


    The megahuge hocks from the Lowe's are awesome.


    The other side including two tandems.



    Ps: I always place the disc brake bikes upside down..

    nope. bought it. Or, "won" it. I attended a World Bicycle Relief fundraiser at the SRAM/Zipp Wheels factory in Indy last year, and those were one of the silent auction items. The table top is a Zipp carbon fiber disc wheel with a piece of plexiglass on top for the surface. The base is some kind of kit for a bar type table.

    I am a divorced single dad of two kids. We live in a mid sized two bedroom house. Due to having a 15 year old daughter, the biggest part of my garage became a bedroom for me. Since my garage was cut dramatically in size, I had to figure something else out. I figured that I didn't need my big tool chest to hold my bike tools, I am new at this. So I did a little rearranging in the new bed room, largely influenced by this thread, and this is the little space I came up with.

    Re: The "What's your shop look like?" thread







    After doing some work in the ol basement, this is what I've come up with. It could still use some work. One corner is full of empty boxes and packing materials for the next move and they could be condensed more.

    I am also thinking about a couple methods to store the bikes more efficiently.

    Amazing pics and ideas to all!! I have been drooling over this thread for the last few days trying to get ideas for my 10' x 16' bike shed which I am going to start setting up after I run power to it this weekend.

    I have a table that was made by a friend of a friend who sells them out of Asheville NC. It is 99% recycled bike parts welded together. The rotors and cogs are spot welded together and sandwiched between two rims. The legs are two rims cut in half with grips covering the bottom as the feet. The only thing I would do differently (if possible, I know next to nothing about welding) would be doing something to stabilize the legs a bit more and I think a chain wrapped along the inside of the rim near the glass would look awesome.
