I’m not sure if anyone gets notified about edits and additions, but I’ve just updated the photos of my workshop. To see them, just click this little link. It’s not spotlessly clean, but it looks better than it has in months.

Its hard when you need to share your shop space with other needs, like the family basement. Been there, done that.
Because of the dust I create, I’ve had to limit my woodworking space to a one car integral garage. Mrs. doesn’t like saw dust in the laundry, seems the lint filter doesn’t catch it all.
Your set up is pretty efficient regarding space and need to share, got just about every spare nook & cranny filled, like the paint and dowels between the joists. Nice work.
My experience with maintaining work space in the house for the shop is like your seat on the bus, once you give it up you can’t get it back!

Great workspace. In some ways I suppose it is a good thing to have a spouse around to keep us woodworkers in check, not overstepping our bounds, or letting things get out of hand. Of course Mrs. handsawgeek doesn’t have that problem with me..No Sireee… I think she likes the idea of my downsizing to hand tools. I think she was pretty happy when I sold off the tablesaw and freed up some space in the garage.
I really like your idea of utilizing the space between some wall studs to use as a storage rack. McGyvering at it’s best, says me!
Good work!
