Worksho… em… workcloset and what’s next.


 
After all, when I said I am a proud owner of one of the smallest workshops in the world I wasn’t lying.
Workcloset will be better name. Tiny and funky space under stairs with hidden secret door leading to forgotten kingdom of Mo… Well, leading to less than 4 foot tall basement with all utilities and pipes for our apartment.

Rules 101. Gordian knot of cables.

Rules 101. If you use it, clean it.

Keep your work place clean, no matter how big or small it is.

I am a proud owner of one of the world’s smallest workshop. Indeed, essentially it’s a closet under the stairs, sort of storage for tools and a few random mats. Be that as it is, call it “storage”… C’mon! It’s a workshop! Furthermore, like any other workshops, it has it’s own rules.
