Shed arrangements/organisation. Show us your best and worst

Post by T.Farm.Brumby » Sat Mar 23, 2013 10:29 pm

Great idea from 60766244 the other day. Just to get a look at everyone's set-ups and organisation for their sheds, might pick up an idea here or there :)

So here's the organisation in my outfit.

These are the shelves we made. Not the prettiest or really the sturdiest things in the world but they get the job done. The job being, getting stuff off the ground and keeping it there
Image
Image

These are also a ridiculously handy thing. Couple of different ways of having them too (you can see another rack of shelves in the back of this one too, same address)
Image
Image

Random bits and bobs with no other home. Plus the most damn well organised grouping of sockets you've ever seen
Image
Image

Fishing/camping "storage"
Image

Any and every kind of idea welcome, just trying to get a bit more organised and I reckon a lot of you would have some good arrangements.

Cheers,
Tom.

Good idea! I'll take some pics of our tiny shed tomorrow. We're getting it up to quite a nice "small workshop" status now, but keeping the bench free and a decent space to walk around in is a never ending battle. More than half the floor space is taken up with my car parts :oops:

Mate, preaching to the choir hahah. I'm working out of one shed, dad has another (but hates working on vehicles, the fool) so that one's full of camping and farm gear.

Half the floor space in my shed is now taken up with spare Brumby gear and bits and pieces I have yet to install. Never a free bench, always have less than half a metre of space around the vehicle inside the shed :(

Exhibit A: Roxy driven into 1 bay of my shed, other bay is entirely full of gear, and so I have to starve myself for 2 days before doing any work or I don't fit in there with the bitch :p

How do you do this???

I'll get a picture of my whole shed with no car in it tomorrow, it's to the point of embarrassing compared to this :-(

Even the bloody concrete is clean!

Digging this thread. :cool:

I'll post photos of mine once these new benches are done and all the tools have homes! Right now anarchy reigns. :rolleyes:

Niterida - That's superb looking!

Tom - Looks like you cram a lot in there. Reminds me of MTB92's shed before he scrubbed it out to build Nigel. Still looks fairly organized.

This is our tiny shed as it is now, it's always changing though :)
View from the door
Image
Just inside, the grinder is by the door so the dust can go outside, also better light. Also where 1 set of spanners and sockets live, i've got another set in it's box.
Image
Shelves below where the power tools live, and my welder which needs to go on a trolley under the bench soon.
Image
One end of the bench with trays for all the nuts, bolts, drill bits and misc
Image
And the other end of the shed with my engine, gearbox, diff, bike, bee hive boxes and the shelving on the right has my twin inlet manifold, carbs and other misc car parts :p

I'll see your tiny shed and raise you one miniscule shed:
Image

1.4 x 2.4 m storeroom, with another couple of workbenches out in the carport.

A somewhat more impressive shed:

Reading through that thread I think it's safe to say that guy isn't short of a few bob :roll: He must run a business out of that shop, there's no way known you'd need TWO surface grinders for personal use :o

*edit* AND a plunge EDM machine! :shock:

Bit jealous, mate? That shed (actually a few sheds, IIRC) belongs to a retired machinist - it's quite a few decades worth of accumulation. If you've got time to read the whole thread, he tells the stories of some of his machines.

Little bit jealous, yes :oops: I did skim through the first 5 pages or so. Being an apprentice machinist/tool maker myself that sort of workshop in a home is like porn :o

Just read that entire thread on Garage Journal. :o

I feel so inadequate. My whole life feels not enough. :P

So.

Much.

Tooling!

Here's me getting all excited about having grinders and a drill press. :rolleyes:

All these professional and organised sheds :(

I've found this is a great use for welding rods which are either too rooted to use, or cracked and broken
Image

And this is a car-port we made about 6 or 7 years ago. Very handy considering there's no space for the vehicles inside the actual shed. Plus the height is brilliant, can stand on the roof of any car and pack all our gear+boat and everything without hitting our heads (considering at 6 foot 1 I'm the runt of the men in our family hahaha) and still be out of the rain :cool:

That carport is nice, I need to get onto something like that.
Here's my disorganised disaster, I have just about everything you need for most projects, but then put all my Dads toys in there, plus the Cruiser & your out of room. I generally do all my work out the front of the shed now.

Sometime it's neater than this, but I can find most things I want.

Cheers Jake

Always the way haha, mine's about the same about 80% of the time.

This is about the strength of my organisation, the only complete kits I have organised right now. About 4 times this strewn around the sheds waiting to be sorted.
(in order)
Metric spanners - screwdrivers - mini socket set - red and blue are imperial socket sets - on top metrinch socket and spanner set - metric socket set - imperial spanner set
