It sounds as if you are making progress on your shop. I can well understand about your lack of success in getting your wife to move her car out of the garage. My wife would put me outside before she would let her truck sit in the weather. :)

Keep us posted on your progress. It is always nice to see a new shop space going up.

Well, it’s the start of labor day week end so I hope to be seeing your completed shop soon. You work all week, then you have to work on one of those rare three day weekends!!!

Would you believe that I have been working so hard at getting the place in order that I haven’t had time to snap a picture! Actually, I am making very good progress. I believe I will have some pics at the end of this weekend. I have installed some cabinets and shelves and now need to add some pegboard.

Gary, this is a nice shop space that you have. I really like the ceiling height that you have in there. I have 92” to the bottom of the floor joists and swinging a full sheet of plywood or long boards means having to dodge around light fixtures and angling boards so that they don’t hit the joists. I also like the windows that you have in the shop and the garage doors. This gives you some natural light that I find easier to work under. The storage loft was a good addition as well. It seems that there are always “non-essential” things that take up space in our shops and this lets you store them out of the way.

You have added some nice cabinetry and storage shelving to your shop that helps with keeping it organized and, to tell the truth, it does look pretty neat in there. If my wife saw how you had your shop organized she probably would give a ribbon for you organizational prowess since she is borderline OCD with respect to keeping thing neat and tidy (a condition that leads to some occasional “discussions” between us). :)

Thanks for the pictures, Gary. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

I’ve got about the same room as you: the third stall in a 3 car garage, 10×24. I’m not going to partition it off, though, because I’ve concluded that if I put the tablesaw and jointer so the feed direction is sideways, and I keep them close to the 10’ line, I can use the middle stall as infeed/outfeed space.

I also plan on a similar hardware storage setup, except I’ve been saving tin cans for months instead of plastic jars.
