I am slowly working to setting up my basement brewery which has space on 3 sides of a square room. I have my keg fridge, and ferm chamber along one wall, a 6 foot set of shelving along another. I plan to setup a 4 foot "brew" sculpture for the actually brewday part to the right of the shelving. I am left with about a 6 foot span of area I would like to place a workbench in. This will be used for other purposes and projects other than brewing, but Im sure I will be using it to weight out ingredients and hold my beer while brewing! I am looking for ideas and pictures of other peoples multi purpose benches and how they use them for brewing

Will Try to get pics of my room up later

Here are the pictures of the brewspace from right to left around the square room I have my ferm chamber (not in picture), beer fridge (you can see in the first picture below), some open space, the future 2 tier wood electric brewstand, 6 feet of shelves, and then the workbench area. I think I will definitely need to put the workbench on wheels so I can move it to get access to the left side of the shelves. Forgive my HORRIBLE attempt at 3d drawing in paint haha. So ya, I am looking for other brewers benches for ideas. I am probably looking at a 6' x 2' bench.

iamjonsharp that is nice! I like the keg storage. I have the same bins of mis stuff. My favorite part is the cat coming out, how did you plan your cat storage? How many cats dose it hold?

Looks good iamjonsharp! Is that plywood or a glued pine top? I really like the top carboy racks!

I have an old printer stand I got at Staples for a fermenter stand that holds all my brewing/bottling stuff. Even the vinator box holds zip lock bags of airlocks,grain & hop sacks,extra lil parts & whatnot. Everything goes in this thing. Boxes of clean empty bottles to the right of that,with my jugs for getting spring water next to that. The homer cheapo bucket with my sealed bags of grains inside & Barley Crusher grain mill on top of it. My 6 gallon better bottle on top of that.
http://
The lil red 12 pack cooler is handy for setting on the floor next to me for filling bottles (see my videos on unionrdr's youtube channel) & de-labeling with some PBW.

Unfortunately, other projects have taken up my time and $ - Redoing my deck this summer, then hopefully I can get back to this area by fall. In the meantime...

Surely there are more brewers anxiously waiting to post their pictures, right?

I wish. I am slowly trying to get things in order around the house and garage. I wish more people would post for inspiration.

So I started this thread a while back and I FINALLY got around to building my workbench over the weekend. I ended moving the shelves in the pictures above to the wall on the left. I plan on building my brewstand and placing it to the right of this bench.

About the bench: 6 feet long, 2 feet wide, 36" high. I got 3/4" thick BC grade plywood and doubled it up. I did some light sanding but its still not as smooth as I wold like so I plan on grabbing some tempered hardboard 1/8" to lay on top as a sacrifical surface - no more splinters!

Without further ado...
