Mobile Woodshop

Woodworking Workshop
Mobile Woodshop

Ron Paulk‘s mobile woodshop fits inside a 1,000 cubic foot truck and packs every major power tool with a number of rather clever storage solutions. Even better, Ron has created sketchup plans so you could build your own! [via core77]

    I like the cubbies for all of the hand tools. I could see building something like that under my workbench in my garage…

    Man I would love to see what this guy to do for built-in home storage. So well thought out.

    Your design is much more compact and easier to move around than the Nova Scotia Shopmobile was. ( I was the Director of the restoration of Shopmobile #3 from 1980 to 1992 and I have a number of pictures and articles about the restoration, as well as the original Shopmobile Program in the 40’s and 50’s. If you are interested please let me know. (

    Very nice setup. Many of these ideas would work quite well for a makerspace or personal workshop – mobile or not. I really like the drawers. And the Festool collection… thats great equipment, if a bit pricey.

    WOW! Want!! I aspire. I cannot (ok, shouldn’t) really complain about my limited workspace in my basement. That is seriously fantastic.

    Im not sure if its on his website but he designed a breakdown assembly table and mitre saw stand that go under the table saw in his truck. The design on those is very well thought out just like this truck. I like the way he thinks and his work flow seems very efficient.
