My shop is the third stall of our garage which we built this past year as part of a complete rebuild of our property. The oak tool chest shown in the third picture was a Christmans gift to myself a couple years ago.

Roy, you have a nice shop space to work in. It is bright and well lit and well organized. The shop has a nice high ceiling in it. That is something I have always wanted in mine. This allows you to store lumber and sheet goods vertically where you can get at them easier. I have to store mine horizontally in my lumber rack which is 24” deep and getting to a board on the bottom or at the back of a row can be a challenge.

I also like the way your shop is separate from the house. This lets you run your power tools and apply finish to projects without disturbing anyone in the house. And you are less likely to bring sawdust into the house (I get yelled at occasionally for doing this :) by my wife) since you have the breezeway between the house and shop.

You have a nice shop. Thanks for posting pictures of it and giving us a visual tour.

Very nice workshop.
I’m sure you spend more time in the shop than in the house.

How tough was that epoxy floor coating to lay down? Also what brand / color? I’ve never seen the epoxy coat in a light color like that… Looks great.

This is U-coat-it from Honestly, it’s a little bit of a pain to put down. Several steps, power washing, prime, color coat, clear coat. But the end result is worth the trouble. I also got the stuff that resists auto fluids. When you spill stain it wipes right up, with no trace. I have used the Home Depot stuff and its simpler to put on but its just glorified paint. I believe Sherwin Williams has a similar product to the U coat it. All have a nice palet of colors.
