« Part 2: The Before Pic (Caution: Graphic images -- LOL!) Part 3 of Garage Re-Do series Part 4: Creating a Plan »

Ok, so I have to know where I’m starting out from and what I have so I did a little inventory last night. Below is the items I have in the garage. Wow . . . that’s a lot of stuff. I’m thinking some items might just need a re-do to gain functionality. I have one item that is on spindly 2×2 legs, but I might be able to add some addition boards/bracing and put it on wheels for a rolling work table. My next course of action will be to plug all this into Sketchup and re-arrange things to get a better workflow and separation of areas between woodworking and metal working. You can kind of see my idea in the sketch—I used the sketch to get the dimensions. I figured I could Google the MG dimensions. I have some car rollerskates so I can swing it around wherever I need to.

Bradley, I not sure how much use it will be but, if were not aware of it, Grizzley has a shop planner. It tends to be oriented toward Grizzley products and only deals with 2-D plans but it might be of some use in designing the work flow in your garage.

you are ambitious and I like that. I hope you are successful with the reorganization. You can be an inspiration to me.
