I’ve been way to crowded in my shop, especially since I went from a radial arm saw to a table saw.
A radial arm saw works fine in a narrow shop, because it’s against the wall
Plus adding a thickness planer.
I haven’t use the automobile side of my garage for years now.
About all its been used for is to accumulate things.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a rough sketch of my floor plan. I plan to keep the partition down the center, so I won’t have to heat the whole area all of the time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The first thing I have to do is dig my way to one of the walls.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is what I mean.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When I finally found a wall, I sheeted it with OSB board.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Then I cut some 1/2” Steel Rebar into 12” lengths in order to make some lumber racks.
Then I pounded them into some 2” deep holes I had drilled.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is what I ended up with on the first wall.
A nice neat lumber rack, & a very inexpensive way of doing so.
