    the bottom section of my roll cab has generic tools like spanners ,screw drivers , spring compressors , bearing pullers etc etc - no need to take with me.

    If i stuck my bike tools on a cool shadow board in my workshop like i had at the shops ive worked in id have to pull them all off the wall to load up the van and put them back on sunday night. Not great but no doubting its the easiest way to work with the tools !
    Well the obvious answer is to get a second set of tools!

    Here's my movable workbench/condensed bikeshop, or so I call it. I bolted one of my repair stands to it as well as my truing stand, vise and set of t-handles. Sorry for the bike blocking the view It's got 4 swivelling casters on the bottom, so it's great to move from garage to garage (one's heated, one's not), or just out on the driveway on a nice day. I've got my floor mounted repair stand and other goodies for when I get a garage of my own and can take up more space

    This thread inspired me to fix my garage/workbench. The original plan was to clean, mount Pegboard, and use the old POS desk as workbench. With the assistance my FIL( really his idea) we built my work bench out of this menard metal storage shelf.

    Before (with POS desk)

    Still have to add a 2x4 across from of table, glue/screw workbench top and cut the excess wood on right side.

    I made the bench years ago a professional semi-portable repair shop that I owned. The unit rolls on industrial casters or can be disassembled into 6 manageable pieces in minutes. Note the attached truing stand and spoke cutter/threader on the ends of the bench, speakers in the cabinet (lower corners) and subwoofer below the file boxes. Ipod plugs in next to the file boxes. It rocks AND rolls.

    For those of you like me that only have very limited space, here's a great idea that can beade for about $60 and some basic tools. I just finished my first one thinking about making another.

    Cool idea, but I am lazy so I just bought an old upper kitchen cabinet for $15 from the local Humane Society.

    This thread helped to get me to turn an extra room in the house into a nice workshop. I've been using all the Xmas sales to update my old/cheap tools and its starting to look complete. Counters in, pegboard in. I still need to get a nice vise. I'll stick some pics up soon.

    The best toolset I bought so far is this pass thru socket set:
    1/4 & 3/8-in. Wrench Set: Torque it Down Tight with Tools from Sears

    Friggin awesome, I've already used it several times.

    Craftsman also has nice torque wrenches on sale for $40 right now.

    Heres my new work room, I decided who needs an extra bedroom for visitors so I got rid of that stuff. I have 2 air mattress anyway. I redid the entire room. New fan/light, new electrical outlets and light switch. While painting, the left corner of the room felt funky so I cut into it and I found why the house had been sprayed for termites years ago before I bought it. Luckily the damage was limited to a few 2x4s in the corner so I replaced everything, resheetrocked and textured to match. It came out nice, to bad you cant see it behind the counters and pegboard.

    I keep all my bike tools in the left side tackle box as I keep a stand outside and generally do most work out there when the weather is nice.

    We just moved into a new house over the summer. I was finally able to give some attention to the garage to start getting everything setup. There's still plenty of work to do, but it's usable now. The toolbox on the right I just picked up used for cheap, it's a little beat, but it gave me more much needed storage space. Plus it has ball bearing drawer slides, which are way nicer than the friction slides my old box has. I also took the time to hang up decorations, including a couple of old busted frames. I made the hangers for the frames out of sections of old chain.

    Yes, I bought it at a VW show when I had a GTI in my younger years. It adorned the front of a few different VWs over the years. I was told it was an authentic German plate, but I've never been there so I don't know...

    Looks like a German pre Euro plate, what I can see it a S which most likely means Stuttgart, the name of the city was on the silver sticker
    and the other one was depending if its a front or rear plate the expiration date of the last inspection or smog check.

    I really like the older GTI's, they did not have a lot power by todays standards
    but they were very light and basic cars.

    It is a small shop, but still nice to have an area where I can work on the bikes and fabricate a few things.

    Wish I could say I did. I was in the process of fabricating a truing stand fairly similar till the house was robbed. Insurance company asked for pics of what we had and they would not buy raw materials only a finished truing stand. Closest they found was the one by P&K Lie so that is what is in the shop. With the lathe and mill I do fabricate quite a few parts for the bikes and everything else. On the signature link are a few little things I've done on the lathe.

    This is a work in progress. My bicycle space is shared with motorcycles and Lacrosse stuff, though this is a pretty good start. The "What's your shop look like?" thread-imageuploadedbytapatalk1356247967.324188.jpg

    This is what I currently have going on. Spare bedroom in our apartment. We are buying a house soon that has a garage and basement. I'm thinking bikes in the garage and ski waxing in the basement. Once we get moved it and situated after the baby is born in April, I'll post up the final results.

    Strange question but I'm curious: how deep to you guys make your custom workbenches?

    I've read that most are 24" to 36" but that seems extremely deep! I'm building an 8' wide workbench in my basement but was only going to go 18" deep to save myself some floorspace. is 19" too narrow?

    I did mine at 24", but I'm used to 36" from working in shops. I went narrower because I am using the spare bedroom in my apartment. I didn't want too narrow because I work on skis and bikes and still wanted some room for different tool layouts as seasons change.

    This was over a year ago. i have a LOT more tools now, and it is more organized. It's pretty sweet, 1200 sq. feet, hardwood hickory floors, 24x10 storage area, full bathroom. I have a separate area visqueened off for working with solvents, metalwork, welding, and another for carpentry. probably 40 feet of benchtop, and a 4x8 stout workbench in the middle of the space for bigger projects. it now also has about five times as much light, many more flourescent shoplights, and 8 large windows. It's on the 2cnd floor, so i get some great mountain views, and i can look down on a trail and watch folks go by occasionally while I
    work. (It is also my workshop for my business, Welcome to Bicyclart! | bicyclart.com )









    The bestest part?
    singletrack right from the door out the back that leads to some of the best trails in WY. Ski right to the door as well from the lifts...

    Thanks.
    Yes, fully stock beer fridge and a fully stocked liquor cabinet just on the other side of the room. (was actually standing in front of them to take the pictures).

    I have since added even more of the steel pegboard underneath the two wall cabinets now to hold even more tools... mostly my fork rebuild tools like the bushing puller, bushing drivers, etc.

    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    Much smaller than what most of you have, but it allows me to work on the bikes.

    Damn, your workshop looks bigger than my entire dingy apartment. Really like the orderly look. Mine is sort of being done up this way, much smaller of course and thought it might be a little "too clean" to look like a bikeroom.

    Mountains and tracks right out the door! Ok Im not even gonna read anymore.

The amp finally burned out back in 2011 and I replaced the whole system with a Pioneer Elite SC-35 and Paradigm speakers. But I loved that Technics system, it sounded great.

    My space is getting an update. Garage was completely un-insulated in the two exterior walls (it's attached) and in the ceiling/roof. The inner and outer doors are well sealed and insulated at least. I have a decent space heater, but it barely keeps it tolerable in the winter. Not to mention it's likely adding more to my overall heating costs in the long run.

    Putting in some R30 batts into the spaces, 3/4 hardwood ply on the walls and luan board up on the ceiling. A bit more lighting in as well.

    Then I'll be able to get more stuff up on the walls and hanging overhead, freeing up valuable floor real estate. I've got a tablesaw and some other stuff to get setup in order to work on other projects!

    The single electric (dual plug at least) is also woefully old and not up to taking the load of everything I'd like it to sometimes. Going to run an updated line in it's place, add a couple more outlets, and line outside - which my house has none of at this point.

    Nothing in a 90 year old house is level, plumb, straight, etc.

    My shop

    Not as nice as some of yours but I would say it is ok for a 16 year old. Made the bench and multiple other things in welding.The &quot;What's your shop look like?&quot; thread-img_20121108_191521.jpg

    Here's mine... Been lurking around this thread for awhile. Lots of great stuff but in the end have to move in different direction to most folks here. Most pics here show somebody's baement/ garage that is half or bigger than my entire treehouse (yea it sucks to be living in a place that has >7000 people/ sq km, everything is just small and crammed)...

    So this is not the usual tools-on-the-wall setup. For practical purposes living in an apartment with year round humid tropical weather.. exposed tools = rust in no time. I have another wet/greasy area outside the front door for all the "dirty work" and had to come up with a lot of "creative" storage ideas that blends in well with the rest of the place.

    Not finished... just what I got it up to last weekend

    EXCELLENT organizing skills on your part! Makes me feel bad as I've been in my new house for over a year and still haven't properly set up my garage. I keep staring at the walls trying to figure out what I want to do ... but just spinning in circles so far!

    So when could you drop by to give me help with my garage??

    Slowly working on getting my shop organized. I've got roughly a 10'x24' space for the bikes and bigger tools. The over all garage is 24'x40' but also use it to keep our vehicles in as well.

    Thx. I know the feeling. Took me a few months to get away from couching around in the comfort of a new place before tackling the bike room... Procrastination is best countered with a disgruntled spouse.

    Just need an air ticket. If it ain't winter a safari bed in your garage and place to put up my bike will suffice. I'm adaptable

    Heres an updated pic of mine. It doesn't look busy but I keep most of the bike and camping stuff in a closet that is behind me. Left side is normal tool and bike stuff and right side is mainly RC car stuff. Just added the magnetic tool strips yesterday on the peg board. Totally awesome for small stuff.

    Bikes stay in the living room next to the door.

    An update to last years post

    I had to do a little adjusting to my shop this spring since I gained a lot of tools over the last year as well as the legs to my bench were used elsewhere. so this is what I came up with to replace it. I looked around a lot to find something that I didn't have to build but I realized that what was in my head is what I really wanted and it was cheaper to build it and get exactly what I wanted. I must say that I am really happy with the result. just have to add two sliding drawers to the top of the cabinets and it will be exactly what I envisioned.

    And here is the first project in the updated shop
