I use about half of our garage while making room for sports stuff, bikes, and my wife’s car. We moved into this house in October of 2013 and I kind of threw everything in as quickly as possible. Once I’ve had a chance to check off some household projects, I’ll make some changes to the shop. In the meantime, here’s a panorama of its current iteration:

Thanks for looking.

It’s a nice clean shop. You’ve got a great start. I like the light color on the walls and you appear to have good lighting (more is always better).

Hi Cory, this is a nice looking shop that you have to work in. I like your mobile cart. It provides you with a nice work surface and helps keep your tools and other shop items organized. Bummer about having the non-woodworking items stored in there but I think that is a condition that most of us experience. It never fails that my wife will invariably store anything that she can’t seem to part with in MY shop space. :)

The cabinets that you put in there give the shop a nice look as well. I have come to the conclusion that shop furniture does not have to be simply functional. You caninclude form with it as well. These cabinets both look good and provide needed storage.

By the way the only thing that I saw in there that could possibly be changed is the IU sign. If you want I could possibly find you a nice blue UK sign to cover it up. :)

You have a nice shop space and it does look like you have plenty of room to work in there. Thanks for the pictures I enjoyed visiting with you.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys. Well, I guess I should have been more specific: Thanks for the great comments 3fingerpat and 8iowa…....

Scott, you and I might come to blows if you touch my IU sign!!!! We try to not even use the letters U and K in my house. ;-)

If you’re going to give me grief about our basketball team, go right ahead. It’s a tough time to be a Hoosier bball fan, but we’ll come back eventually. My son is almost 3, so I’m hoping by the time he’s a freshman at IU we can at least can split our conference games and get invited to the NIT!!!!

It’s a pretty decent saw. I bought it 2 years ago when I added a deck on the back of my house. It ran great to cut a bunch of treated 2×4’s and 2×6’s. It didn’t see much use after that until last Fall when i used it for all the mouldings in my basement. About an hour into that project the saw quit on me. I had to replace the bushings (I think…can’t quite remember exactly what was wrong) in the motor housing. Cost about $30 at a local repair shop.

All in all, I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of it for sure. When I replace it, though, I’ll go for a slider to up the capacity.
