This my my most meager woodshop!
It started out about 44 years ago as a sharpening shop that my grandfather putin the garage when he built the home in 1963. Then in the late 70’s my great grandmother moved in and turned it into a garage, with a car in it! It remained this way until 2005 when I purchased the home and decided it was time for a proper garage… and two years later it finally is happening!
The walls are painted first with Zissler primer to cover the hideous paneling, then several coats of leftover paints from years past. I picked up some “oops” paint at the local big box shop and did the trim up in a semi gloss. I then applied the Rust-o-leum garage floor coating. (After about 8 hours of prep work) So far I am pleased with it, looks good if at all else. My workbench right now is a really crappy black and decker along with a plywood topped rough cut spruce wood bench. I just picked up a bunch of hard maple and will attempt a more traditional maple workbench. By christmas I hope to have a table saw, ridgid cast iron most likely.
