Renan Labs

The Renan Banjo workshop has gone through several iterations and 2 major overhauls since I began the banjo building journey in April 2015. The space is a 2-car detached garage, it's a good space but the hardest balance to create in a smaller shop is reducing clutter & maximizing storage. 


Originally I designed the space to be visually de-cluttered (minimal) but found over time I was always searching for a certain tool/jig in drawers. Sometimes it's better to have the tools you need at arms length. Adding a dedicated Dust Collection system and more natural light greatly improved my health & well-being as well as upgrading to LED fixtures from fluorescents.


It's the little things that add up. 

my push: curate an inspired space.
