Things are finally coming together in my new place. I moved to my new house three weeks ago and had been working hard to get to the point where I can start on my workshop. Here’s the result of last night’s work. Fresh paint went on the walls after I removed the existing shelving nailed onto the walls twenty years ago. This color is the result of me mixing all the paint the previous owner had left behind into a 5 gallon bucket. Luckily my wife is happy with this color, she likes happy shades of green. We park her car on the other half of this garage, so a happy color is important to come home to after a long day’s work, it also neutralizes the mess I’m going to make.
The tool chest is place in the corner of the garage. It has predrilled holes running the length of it for adjustability. I figured I should design the storage system with plenty of room to grow since there are plenty I still have to learn and plenty of bad habit I have to un-learn.
If I want to be organized then I better make things easy to put away, the magnetic strip for my handsaws should help. They’re in easy reach, in theory should be easy to put away as well. There are lesser used saws in the chest.
The next step is to install a couple rows of French cleats so that I can hand things without having to drill new holes and find studs.
