Ron Paulk recently completed his second tool trailer—at least the second one there is video of. In between the first and second he had a shop in a box truck that was for more than just storage; he actually went inside to work. But after developing an incredibly handy portable work station he found he was no longer working in the truck, so he sold it and built a new trailer. Paulk refers to the trailer as the Portable Woodshop but as he says in the video below, it might have been more accurate to call it a mobile tool room.

Whatever you call it, it’s an incredible setup. Inside the trailer are shelves, drawers, cubbies, and pullouts—containing every tool and small supply a builder might need. It’s wired for lights and receptacles and piped for compressed air, with a compressor permanently located inside. The only thing “missing” is staging and long extension ladders—and it would be unreasonable to think those would fit in a trailer alongside a full complement of tools.

You can see the Portable Woodshop in the video below. Check it out; it’s pretty amazing.
