I haven’t been around much over the past year due to a shop rebuild and a change in my work schedule but I’m back and glad to be here. A year ago at this time my Garage shop was flooded due to a ruptured pipe in the ceiling so after everything had been guttedmy Wife & I set to work on rebuilding my shop. We started out running a sub panel that would be dedicated for the garage/shop. We ran 4 separate dedicated 110v circuits with 5 outlets each around the shop. 2ea. 220v receptacles, 1 for my cabinet saw and the other for a 30 amp garage heater. 2 separate circuits for 4 T8 8’ 4 bulb fluorescent light fixtures. Cable outlet for TV. We then insulated the walls and ceiling, then drywalled and painted. After all that was completed I began building my base cabinets and counter tops. The cabinets are 3/4” maple plywood seconds (blemished) joined together with biscuits, glue & pocket screws, and doors hung with Blum euro hinges The counter top is laminated 3/4” mdf with a poplar band on the tops edge and the covered the top with Masonite that acts as a sacrificial cover. My next project will be to build and hang upper cabinets. I can now get down to some serious woodworking and do it without having to swap tools out on portable stands or folding tables which eats up valuable woodworking time.
I hope you like the transformation. I still have more to do but this is a major improvement over what I started with
