So I've been horribly quiet in the forums lately - mostly because of a lack of free time. Since I don't have a dedicated work space - having to break down and set up tools, projects, etc. severely limits how much time I have on projects. Thankfully - I'm getting a new house with my own room for projects as well as a garage! I'm hoping this will mean more time to complete projects. Most of my components are in cardboard boxes and plastic tubs - well organized but not exactly what I'd like for a nicely organized full workspace. I know we've had threads for showing off your workspace - but I'd love to hear about what you like best about your workspaces or anything you think might be helpful since I haven't had a dedicated space before. So - any suggestions on the following? I'm definitely not afraid of making my own furniture as well. Organization (small components to WIP projects) Types of work spaces (large open table, bench with shelves, etc.) Sites/videos with information that might be helpful (I'm thinking Adam Savage or Ben Heck videos for instance) Tools (not soldering iron or oscilloscope, more like magnifying glass, monitor holders, etc.) That one thing that you find invaluable for your workspace. Where to buy affordable stuff (I'm in the US, but non-US places might be good for other forum members) I've heard Harbor Freight is bad for tools - but they seem to have pretty cheap component organization options, and I've got one near by. And I'm trying to talk the wife into a hidden bookcase as the entrance. Fingers crossed! If I pull that one off - I'll have to post a video tour!
