I am almost at the point of having a functional workshop. I still have lots of work to do, but tools are accessible, and I have room to work. As I’ve mentioned before, my goal is to have a safe space in which to work. That means putting machines on wheels and parking them against the walls. This makes the perimeter of the shop look crowded, but it opens up the interior so I have room to work.
Given that things are being stored against the walls, I decided to use the wall space above and around those tools and tool cabinets as efficiently as possible. I have installed shelves over some tools and I have other tools nested together in a tight row. One of the more challenging items to store is the scaffolding I use as a hoist/crane.
The scaffolding can be disassembled, but even in that state, it takes up a lot of space. My plan has always been to store it against the wall, and to store two wheeled tool cabinets under it. The cabinets fit well, and the majority of the space is being put to good use. However, this means that, depending on what drawers in the tool cabinets I need to access, I need to reach in under the scaffolding. That brings me to today’s one-liner.
“Order of operations, bang head on blunt metal object then cover blunt metal object with foam to prevent injury.”
