always doing this or doing that, to my 2 car attached garage. I will be dedicating 1 stall to wood working, and the other stall to be flexible between a vehicle and wood shop related.
I painted the walls 2 tone yellow: top is sunrise yellow, bottom is sunset yellow.
Insulated the ceiling with R-19 batts (soon to be drywall’d someday).
Ran 60amp sub panel and 10+ 110v and 4 220v and lighting circuits.
Installed Reznor UDAP60 natural gas heater.
Ran 6” HVAC ducting for my 3HP grizzly, along with a 16” tophat Thein separator.
Ongoing project involving fliptop / wall mounted benches for majority of machinery.

my first ever ‘feeble’ attempt at being wood-smart.
the mitre saw and router table can be lifted so all tables are aligned with the benefit of outfeed tables for the saw, when needed. of course, i did this out of douglas fir 2×4’s and you can imagine how off things became in the end. i didnt know about torsion box design back then :) and used undersized wheels only at the 4corners (this thing was a pain to move around). i didnt have a planer nor jointer then, either.

Not sure about Douglas Fir. I know Southern Yellow Pine, once it’s dry, it’s stable. However getting it dry takes some time. I have been sitting on a stack of SYP 2×4s, and 2×10s for the better part of a year now, they are close…

Yeah, torsion box is nice, if you have time to do it… I might do a torsion box base for my table saw workstation build…

from what i have learned… if you desire the most perfectly flat surface possible, torsion box is the way to go.

Coming along nicely. I’d put another support er 2 underneath those boards on your wood rack.
