So this evening I threw together this simple 1×8x 6’ shelf that I mounted up over the garage door. Been wanting to do this for a while. It holds 10 gallon size cans and 3 quarts. Didn’t want to get rid of the paint as might need it someday but it was on top of a cabinet in the corner of the shop where I put the lathe. I am currently cleaning the corner out to make the turning station for the lathe.
Here is the new shelf
Here is the corner I am working on and how it looked.
I took down the shelf that was on the wall it was 2 1×8’s and I used one for the new paint shelf rack. The other will be hung on the other side of the front wall and I will put all the auto paint I have left from when I painted my hot rod Caprice.
Here is how the corner looks right now. Still have a lot of work to do. The white cabinet will come down. Haven’t decided if I am going to cover the whole wall in peg board or split with a wall cabinet for the lathe tools and peg board to hand jigs and fixtures on.
I am enjoying this very much its like starting in a new shop again with a blank wall. I have always hated this corner of the shop it didn’t look organized and fit in with the rest of the shop.
Thanks for looking,
