I have rearranged the shop this spring to make room for a traditional woodworker’s bench, based upon Matt Kenney’s “Monster Work Bench”. I have received 200 bdft of hard maple and have already broke it down into rough sizes. I’ll start milling next week. Here are some pictures of the shop updates and lumber

Just happened to glance through these photos. Great organization. What system did you use for insulating your garage door? Do you like it?

I can’t remember the brand but I picked it up at Lowes. I really wanted to get the kits that were rigid foam style, I felt that kit was to much many. It has helped, now all the exterior walls are insulated and covered with plywood it all does make a difference. Here in Michigan winters can get pretty cold and the garage is unheated. except for when the most bitter cold hangs around the shop will seldom dip below 35. Still chilly. The only complaint I have about the insulation kit is at times it folds over itself around the edges.

Thanks. I researched online and will install a package similar to yours from ADO. Performs at R8, so they advertise. I’ve also got two pallets of R38 insulation on the way to my driveway for the attic, and I’m going to get a mini split AC system installed soon. Will be nice. We definitely live in opposite ends of the world. It will be very, very hot here soon. It’s perfect in the garage in the winter here.
