The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Small-space workbench


Make: Online reader Conor wrote in with a pic of his small, small workshop — on top of an old traveler’s trunk, underneath his loft bed in a 8×8′ room! Kind of reminds me of Adam Wolf’s closet workshop except with more Mexican candles. And what’s that he’s working on? An electric guitar slash bullhorn? The neighbors’ll like that.

Readers, anyone else have a nifty solution for a space-deprived maker?
