My Shed

Hi Everyone just thought i would post some phoyos of my shed its a mess at moment only get to play with it on odd weekends but it getting there slowly  

I started with a 6m x 5m shed that was full of junk so got annoyed 1 weekend and threw most of it out 

then bought a heap of structural pine and plywood and made a frame the 2 side walls and insulated to help with noise and heat still got the roof and back wall to do

the back wall will be all cupboards floor to ceiling wich am starting on next weekend 


started of with triton workcentre 15 years ago but have moved around alot in my life being in the armed forces  

so have settled down now and doing what i love best 

anyway found that cutting full sheets was painful so made some outriggers for the triton so can do full sheets the thought i need an assembly table to build things on and an out feed table as well so made the bench behind the triton is on lockable wheels but can be moved out if needed



The out feed table has a small area where in can take out an either put in a jigsaw  a sander or a small router 


my next project was making a mobile drop saw table  pictured below

Hey @Gaz,


Just curious if you've made any progress in the shed? It would be great to see what you've been up to in the past month.
