As a Londoner, I'm lucky to have some free space in my house to work on things. As it was originally a Victorian end of terrace pub, I have a full size, full height cellar under my living room. This gives me plenty of storage and working space for portable projects year round. I've had it waterproofed and kitted it out with the basics to make myself a mostly self-sufficient maker.

I do also have an outdoor space and shed, where I work on my motorcycle projects or anything smelly or messy.

We're lucky that nowadays quite affordable tools and machines are easily available to hobbyists, so I've managed to pick up a few things.
  • Soldering station, including hot air SMD rework
  • 3D printers (Ormerod2, Ender 2, Ender 3 and AnyCubic Photon)
  • Laser engraver (basic 2500mW A3)
  • Oscilloscope
  • Pillar drill
  • MIG welder
  • Circular saw, jigsaw, angle grinder etc.
For work I can't achieve at home, I'm a member of London Hackspace, a major London makerspace.
