I purchased a home in rural Alaska that needed some work, but also had some beautiful craftsmanship done by the original builder. Parts of the home felt half-finished and a few other areas needed to be gutted and redone from scratch. I hope to share many of these projects on this website.
The workshop in my home is small compared to what many people think a conventional shop might look like. Total square footage is only 110 feet, but I’ve grown to love it. Having a small space forces you into good habits and allows faster work. I’ve worked in large 1000 foot shops and sometimes felt I spent most of the time walking around trying to find tools.
There was survey done in Fine Woodworking not too long ago asking the square footage of your home shop. I was surprised to read that 46% of the readers had shops in the 150 square feet and less category. I guess I thought that was odd, most shops featured in same magazine are in the 500-1000 square foot range. Yet that doesn’t really represent the space most people dedicate to woodworking.
