Finding the right place to set up a workshop is the first thing you want to do. If you have a garage this is a great place to house your workshop. If you do not, you can build an outdoor garden building such as a large house or garden room.

Once you have everything ready and set up, you can start planning your workshop inside. Do you need work furniture and other equipment? Think about the projects you want to work on and what tools you might need, from basic tools to more specialised tools such as these bending machines or things like electric drills and saws.

In addition to having all the tools you need; you also need to make sure that your workshop is fully equipped with things to keep you safe. Protecting your personal safety is the most important thing, so think about what you will need. You may need items such as masks (to prevent inhalation of toxic fumes) and eye protection (to prevent particles from entering the eyes) as well as protective clothing to prevent damage to your clothing.

Take the time to learn about how all the machines and equipment works as this is important for your own safety. When working with tools you should always be careful and never do this when under the influence of alcohol as this could result in a nasty accident. There are lots of helpful guides online that you can use to help you to familiarise yourself with tools and machinery.

Once you have it all, you are ready to start your own creation! Many places also offer classes for this, which is a great way to start working on wood.
