3 simple building blocks to jump-start your shop.

We all know that the key to efficient, enjoyable woodworking is a well-appointed and well-organized workshop. But the detail that's often overlooked is how frustrating it is to build a shop without a workshop to start with. So what’s a shop-challenged woodworker to do? Well, consider this trio of projects designed to help you build your shop from scratch. The stacking stools get you off the floor, the torsion boxes double as a work surface and assembly table, and the base cabinet offers needed storage. While you can use these projects separately, they’re work best as a set.

These projects were designed for the beginner and can be easily built with a basic collection of benchtop and portable power tools. And when built in the order shown, each project will help you construct the next. The cost for lumber and hardware won’t break the bank either; you can build the set above from birch plywood for less than $300. It shouldn't take you more than a day or two to complete all three.
