    He he, i like mice they are cute.

    Maybe it was death from shiny!

    This is an early warning to us that overdosing on too many shiny pretties can have devastating consequences!

    Charlotte If you like the idea of a shed workshop make sure you insulate it before you put ANYTHING inside, I didnt and have regretted it ever since. I have terrible trouble keeping my tools dry in the winter due to condensation after Ive been in there breathing all day! And it gets really really cold!! Im hoping to insulate mine this summer.

    Ominicci The little white drawer units came from an opticians, I think they get them with lenses in or something and a friend said they were binning them I think theyre classed as disposable! Quite strong and sturdy though. The long rolling mill actually has three rollers and is for putting curves in metal a wonderful tool that allows me to make bangles by the dozen in minutes. You often see huge versions of this in metalworking factories, I bought mine from RDG Tools in Hebden Bridge, theyre a wonderful company if you use machinery/lathes etc.

    Myke if I had a laptop in the shed I would NEVER get anything done!! Im the master of procrastination and way too easily distracted.

    Nic the anvil is so cute but the only little creatures that I ever see around it are dead moths and bugs! Another drawback to having a shed workshop I guess! Its handy for hammering delicate bits of wirework. Tool envy is my forte as well, and hoarding I have to say!!

    My cat would finish that mouse off in a second - no chance of me ever finding anything fluffy and alive in my workshop (the little killing machine that she is).

    Well, here's mine at the moment. This is a testbench, so I'm messing with various bits of the bench itself as I go along. Still need to put in a skin or a drawer for sweeps though.

    It's just B&Q pine, nothing spectacular. The top is MDF & exterior ply (it was handy!) glued together - it's basically from the simple bench plans by Tim McCreight.

    Layout is a bit cluttered - I've got a few projects sat there at the moment in amongst everything.

    The successor will be made in a decent hardwood and "proper" joints for everything (and then I'll give my wee brother the castoff!).
