About

I’m just a guy in a backyard shed trying to do my best in woodworking. The shop dimensions are just shy of 12’x12′, hence ‘The 144 Workshop.’ I started converting my rudimentary shed in early 2010 to what you see today.

I got started in woodworking like many do, a DIY job around the house. In my case it was a router to recess a hinge for an interior door. It has seriously ballooned from there, encompassing many standard woodworking tools.

I can offer no guide to technique, just sharing my journey from DIY homeowner to hopefully one day making wood art and eventually selling something I create.

Right now I make things for my workshop and my immediate family. Thanks for checking the site out.

  1. Thank you for documenting your journey and ideas. I am fortunate to be considering a little larger space at around 200 sq ft. I’ll have the choice of deciding between: 18×11 vs. 20×10.
    I would kind of prefer the 10 ft wide because of the site specifics, though I think I could make 11 ft work. Do you think that 10 feet is going to be a problem or not really something to fret about?

    1. I’d go with 20×10 as long as you can exist within those ten feet. Depends on how you are orienting tools and workflow. Be sure to look at your layout virtually before you commit.
