Some of us are lucky enough to easily find room for a workshop. Others, well, have to get creative. Make: Online reader Kenneth Lee converted his pantry (above photo) into an excellent workshop (bottom photo). I especially like his magnetic shop lamp with exactos and hemostats dangling from it. (Click on the “after” image to see it big!)

Have you done something similar, readers? Send me photographic evidence of your storage and space management skills and I’ll post the best of them!
