After 10 years I am finally getting around to some needed shop upgrades. When we first moved into our home there was never a question about 1/2 of the 2-car garage becoming the “Woodshop”. I started diagraming my space (e.g. where tools would be placed, storage, etc…). Over the years I acquired a cabinet from an old school that is m main storage for power tools and supplies. I have insulated and sheet-rocked the entire exterior of the detached 2-car garage. and put up a plastic vis-queen divider between the shop and “stuff” (also known as , bikes, toys, freezer, fishing and camping gear, etc…). After living with a plastic wall for 8 years, I have decided to build a more substantial wall. I framed and insulated a divdiding wall replacing the plastic. I have also insulated the ceiling of the shop side and plan to sheet rock, and paint. This should improve lighting, as well as the dust collection. Not to mention the better sound proofing for my neighbors. Once this remodel is done my next plan is to work on the actual shop space and try to make it more efficient. I plan to build a storage cabinet for larger bench top power tools and then build a decent work bench. I have followed Christopher Schwarz articles and hope to take from his experiences and build a bench that will meet my needs.
