  • Best way to avoid Christmas chaos is to hide in the workshop. Made a quick addition to the drill rack.

  • Another small Christmas project: Storage for a random orbit sander plus sanding discs. Not thought fully through, as I have a few sanders and like to have at least two at hand when working.

  • More of this content please

  • Not too much birch ply content today, sorry.
    I few years ago I bought 8 or 9 sorting shelf things. Hung the first 3 today and began merging my granddad's, dad's and my own collection of nuts, bolts, washers, bike bits, brass furniture hardware etc.

  • Almost all their stuff was stored in tobacco tins or cigar boxes. Might keep some of the stuff in their tins for nostalgias sake.

  • You've made decent progress! I wouldn't mind visiting when I'm in Fyn next.
    Definitively keep some old tobacco boxes, they make good family keepsakes.

  • You're very welcome. It looks like I'm buying a house in early spring, which will give me another shop next to this one, which will be dedicated to bikes

  • Storage is still not done and the labelling needs to be sorted, but now it's ready for some more sorting.
    I did get a few more ply wall pieces sorted:
    A safety square with first aid kit, eye rinser and a bandaid dispenser (that's in the mail somewhere) and the charging piece from my old workshop.

  • Sooo fucking nice Jesper. It's like you been collected shit for this place for years

  • Thanks. It's incredibly nice to finally having a decent workshop, but I'm still running out of space...
    More safety stuff:

  • Gravity defying ear defenders! Nice

  • A few thoughts about what I'm doing in the workshop atm:
    While the new place is larger (and warmer) than my old garage, it's still not big enough for my needs, but as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I'm buying the house next door at some point. That will give me space for a dedicated bike workshop and free up some much needed space in this place. I'm still in the process of moving stuff out of my old place, that's 200 km and a expensive bridge crossing away. That means that every now and then I have a bunch of stuff coming into the shop that needs sorting quickly to not get too much in the way. This usually means that the big work table gets covered in a pile of stuff that then gets sorted into bins/boxes. The stuff that I have a current need for gets some sort of plywood storage solution that goes on a wall, but probably not in its final location. When the old shop is empty and I have some more storage here, the layout/work flow will be sorted and stuff will get hung in its final position.

  • Speaking of just tossing stuff on the wall to have it at hand, a bunch of the measuring devices went up on a piece of chipboard

  • And my dad's old cabinet got repurposed for finishes, chemicals, whisky and port.
    My sister's old recycling bins went underneath.

  • Oh man that charging station! Boy oh boy you done good

  • Haha that cabinet with chemicals, whisky and port would NOT pass any safety standards. But it's great. Whole thing is amazing, the sort of thing I dream of, along with the skills and time to make use of it all.

  • Yeah we should see if we can get a group discount on flameretardent cupboards

  • Part of my last haul from the old shop was 4 steel cupboards, so I might move some stuff around

  • You're velcome to stop by my place as well.
    My workshop is much less impressive, but I make a pretty good cup of coffee and the riding around my house is pretty nice also :)

  • Quick update to the PPE wall. Redid the holder for the hearing protection and made a quick holder for nitrile gloves.

  • Excellent! I wonder if its a standard box size

  • It's the same size as the other 10 boxes of different sizes I have, but dunno with other manufacturers

  • A tiny birch ply update.
