The idea is that it allows breeze to pass through the blocks while retaining the barrier.

If you have a sealed space with no A/C it gets really hot before you even factor in the human.

Even though you got your answer, yes it leads to the outside. It helps keep my garage cooler. You can feel the cool air actually come in if you are standing next to the opening. And i live in Florida, garage was probably built in the 80's. House was originally built in the 50's. Still very hot in there that is why I put that stuff on my garage door. Still need to do the other door and maybe parts of the roof.

Since I can't have a workshop being a student in a shared apartment, I've tried coming up with furniture design that will maximize the workspace that I have combined with my normal living quarter.

This is a workbench/office desk combination I'm planning.

Any thought on this? Did anyone of you did something similar?

Next will be a sortment-box/-shelf for the wall and maybe a bigger tool-board to be wall-mounted.
>>
>>924870

Where is the bench vice?
>>
>>924870
What sort of stuff are you going to be making?

I find woodworking (beyond the size of little boxes and whatnot) gets cumbersome if you don't have a freestanding bench that you can work on any side of.

Might need a crossbrace for the legs to keep it from swaying side to side, or fasten the whole thing to the wall.

With a combination workbench, I find myself falling victim to project pileup--if the bench is full of last nights bullshit or my tax paperwork or something, I get lazy.

So perhaps consider a smaller bench, and more project storage if you have a lot of small projects. If you're the type who works diligently on one thing, then it looks like you're on a good track.
>>
>>924870
I also forgot to add the lower part of the stands, since I want this thing to be adjustable in height.

>>924876
I'll get an easily removable bench vice, so I can build a small work table that I can take outside in the yard to work on stuff with my rotary tool that would otherwise fuck up my room.

>>924878
>What sort of stuff are you going to be making?
Arduino, general repair work and soldering, costum-made lights (for film) and a lot of propmaking for my own projects.
My university has a proper wood-, metal- and plastic-workshop that I can go to for the heavy stuff, but I want to be able to work from home as much as possible.

Yeah, I will add the crossbrace later, once I have finished the design completely.

I myself tend to be very disorganized and forget to clean up. This might become a problem that I will have to come up a solution for.
I thought about getting a lot of trays (like in McDonald's) that I can slide easily in and out of a shelf, so my projects don't get mixed in with each other.
>>
>>924878
Adding to this--one of the best things in my little corner shop is a folding 6' banquet table. 20 bucks at a big box store.

It's great for laying out bigger projects, or any handiwork that doesn't require a rock solid surface to bash on. When you're through it tucks away like it was never there.
>>
>>924881
>adjustable height
Personally I'd recommend against it. Get an adjustable shop stool instead, and size it to be suitable for working while standing.
>match the height of any counter or work surface you enjoy working at
>you should be able to lay your palms flat on the bench without discomfort while standing up straight and belly right up to the work surface
that's my rule of thumb anyways.

Also
>custom lights for film
Professional juicer here, AMA or share what you're making. I <3 custom fixtures.

>forget to clean up
Just work on it. Have a place for everything. It just takes discipline--good storage and discipline is the difference between a productive shop and a sloppy hoarder's den.

I'm a fan of any old box. A bunch of banker's boxes or plastic shoeboxes will make your space look neat, which really helps psychologically. One less thing to make you avoid going to work. Trays seem sloppy IMO.
>>
>>924870

best height for a bench is (top)dick height.

The trays won't be so bad once they are organized. Even if it is a carburetor in bits on one and a phone in bits on the other it the separation between the two will feel like a "neat pile"

The primary thing with storage is to keep at it. The barony eurofag has a good example of a neat working desk where everything is at hand rather than having to dig through a box every time you need a tool.
>>
>>924895

>tfw my dick rests on the bench when I need a break.
>feels good man
>>
>>924896
Oh, absolutely tools should be right at hand--as many as you can without breaking the first order of retrieval or sacrificing too much space, with priority going to the ones you use the most.

I just like boxes for hiding projects away. But I have a problem with diving into things and then get caught waiting for a part to arrive, getting bored and setting it aside for a week, etc.
>>
>>924901

This is a good example of where it comes down to personality.

I need to see my things to do because I will forget and it won't get done until I need it and can't use it or I do a clean out and "oh shit, this is still here."

Hell even if I leave a note, once it is somewhere that is not obstructing my life I will step right over it.
>>
>>924902
I see! Yes, my issue is that if I let my shop get too cluttered, I will just avoid it.
>I should work on <thing>
>eh, I'll have to spend 20 minutes cleaning first...
>maybe I'll watch a movie and see if I still feel like it...
I really need the discipline of putting work away and leaving a clean slate for the next session.

Thought I'd add my pic. I bought 3 sets of parts drawers from the local Radioshack when they closed down last year. I then built the shelf below it. The shelf is about 6ft long and 2 1/2ft tall. the top and middle shelf are made of 3/4" MDF board and the rest is built with 2x4. I drew up a model in sketchup and planned out every cut before I even bought the wood. It all went together in a few hours. I made the shelves tall enough to handle the largest textbooks I had. I currently have about 20 plastic shoeboxes double stacked on the top and bottom shelves. I use the tubs for bulky things such as some 6V lead acid batteries, Power cables, stepper motors, etc.
