Default What does your wrenching table look like? post a pic.

Well yes I am bored and was just wondering what everyones work area looks like?
So where do you wrench? In the garage? At the track? On your dining room table? (banjos playing)

Has the new Baby kicked you out of your man cave/extra bedroom as it did me?

Ill start it off! I wrench in my backyard shed ever since the 1st baby was born.
Heres a pic!

my brother and i moved our pit space out to the garage after several complaits from his wife!! we have a pretty nice setup out there though. we bought an eight foot countertop and mounted it on the wall with pegboard above. we just recently purchased a mini fridge for the garage to help avoid the constant trips in and out of the house to grab a cold one

Here's mine,nothing fancy.I just walled a section of my shop off with some blemished discount lumber and panneling.It has all I need,good lighting,work space,compressor and of course a TV.It is still a work in progress,I am always adding and tweaking things here and there.And yes it is always that clean and organized.

Default heaven on earth

Here is my pad.. Or the cave as the missus calls it. It has all the essentials.. a beer fridge capable of taking 3 slabs for those all night slogs.. A radio for draining out the voice of the missus.. A tv for keeping up on the latest footy score... An ultrasonic cleaner for doing engine work.. A compressor for blowing out the cars. cupbourd stroage for fuel and chemicals. Shelving for spare tires/parts. fire extinguisher incase one of those lipos goes bang near my fuel....Who needs to leave the house other then to go racing with a shed like this... Wireless internet for ordering parts online/getting the latest setup info.... The only thing that would be better in my eyes if it was on wheels to go to the track so i didnt have to pack/ unpack all the time and a topless waitress to get the beers....
