Distiller's Workbench

Recommended Posts

Good Day Fellow Distillers!

Just moved my distillery and I'm in the process of setting up my new space.  While I'm designing my new workflow, I've decided to build a workbench (I do some woodwork).  I've already constructed the top, it's 6 foot by 30 inches.  It's build from gluing staves together.

Now I'm working on the storage area for the table.  My current plan is to have 1 shelf below the top with sections for my graduated cylinders, tasting glasses and hydrometers.  The top will have a tray cut in so the bottle top press will sit flush and it will also serve as a spot for my hydrometers to sit so they don't roll off the top.

Below the shelf, I'm thinking of making a hanging rack so I can slide in storage boxes that can hold shrink capsules and t-top corks.

My question for ya'll is, what would you want to see in a work bench?  What are the tools you want to keep at hand while you are working?

Think about 5s when you're working on this project. Shadowboards will save you a ton of transaction time.



Great videos on it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU0OXtC1xSvZsIiLBdQopaA

You can hang the graduated cylinders like wine glasses. I figure that will save you some space.
