My shop is pathetic

Would love to get out of the garage. Maybe someday. Would also love to acquire the plethora of wood some of you guys have!

Some "In Progress" Photos

I posted some "Before" pictures earlier in this thread. Here are some "In Progress" ones. Everything ripped out, adequate electrical installed and starting to put everything back together! Got the DC system started and will run piping when I get the equipment set

Mariah, I made one of those hanging tools cabinets from Wood Magazine like you show in your last picture. I really like it. But you made two of them. Nice!

Then why are you posting it here? You say you've had no replies, which implies that you've asked elsewhere on the forum. Judging by your post count I'd say you just joined today. You had to have known that you'd be apologizing before you posted. Let your conscience be your guide.

If you post a question you've got to be patient. If someone comes along and has an answer they'll probably offer it up. But don't go chasing after people by posting something so off base in a totally irrelevant thread just to be seen. Start a new thread if needed. Or, if you already did, sit back and relax. It may take a day or two. This is a forum, not a chat room.

Patience grasshopper...

Welcome to the forum!

Yea those "shop-in-a-box's" you can put a lot of stuff in! Just make sure to get the 1/8" peg-hooks vs. the 1/16" peg-hooks.

Mariah,

I too have built 2 of those clamshell cabinets, however one of them I left the inner doors out, instead I mounted 2 Stack On 39 drawer parts bins. These things hold an awesome amount of stuff... I mounted mine so that I could open all the doors all the way and not hit anything.

Not sure if you found this out on your own yet or not, but the tops of these things make a great place to stow hand held power tools that may not get frequent use...

Just noticed the drill press in your first pic too... Glad to know I am not the only one out there using a Northern Industrial drill press for wood working...

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com

Small world...I head to Paducah at least once if not twice a year for hunting. Mayor's a friend, and runs a great program for military and vets.

I'll get a photo of my "shop" once I get home....spoiler alert, it's mostly my deck in the back yard. Wife took over the basement for her studio (Licensed Massage Therapist, so I'm not complaining ), and finding something with useful garage space for what we made ourselves stay in when we bought our house is simply not possible out here. No worries....we'll figure stuff out as necessary.

Mariah, good looking shop. hows that sheet good cart work for you? do you keep it stored somewhere in the shop or do you roll it in there when you are needing something off of it?

The shop is just a 2 car garage. One side of the garage is shelving. I put up that blue tarp to try to block out some of the saw dust off the shelves. (It helps a little.) The sheet goods cart/cut off's works ok. Its 8'x2', the plans are easily found online. I need to replace the caster wheels on it with some better ones. I used some HF cheap ones, the casters are too small and way over loaded so its extremely difficult to move the cart out of the way of the shelving. If I was going to build it again I would try to build it taller to utilize the wasted space above it.

ok thanks for the input..ive seen the plans around for them many times, but wondered how effective they really are as opposed to my current system of ply sheets leaning against a wall.

Overall I'm ok with it. I just need to find some project that I can use my all my scrap on.

If you have wall space to burn there are lots of plans out there for wall mounted/swing out wood storage.

Ok I have most of my DC set up so I thought I'd take a couple of pictures of the shop.



The DC sits in the back room. I ran it thru the wall, you can also see the remote controle mounted there too.


I had one of my guys in the shop build a custom intake, (Instead of the three into one)




This is the left side. If you look there is a door on the back wall. That leads to the back room where the DC is located.


Left side. I still need to add a Jointer, but that's about it.
