Well, it has begun. My garage/shop makeover will begin in the spring. I have to have it done before April so I can start building another crib. My garage as it sits right now has no storage whatsoever besides two metal shelving units. All my other tools, or sitting on the floor. I do not even have a wood rack to speak up. My clamps sit on the floor or up against a tool until I need to use them. I am in desperate need of storage and functional space in my garage shop. This is a design that I came up with. If any of you have any comments or suggestions I am open to anything you have to say. When the weather gets warmer, the restoration will start with a brand-new epoxy flooring. Then the real fun begins!!!

If it is hard to see, I’m going to have a wood rack over my seller which will still allow access to the seller when in need. The cabinet in front of the seller will hold my radial arm saw, my sliding compound miter saw, as well as miscellaneous items such as the planer. My jointer will sit behind that cabinet with my bandsaw adjacent to it. The back wall will encase a standup freezer, dust collection and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry with a desk and shelves to the far right. Down the right wall will have my lathe, drillpress, bandsaw/resaw, and toolchest. In the middle of the shop floor will have an assembly table with storage and air compressor compartment, and a downdraft table. I also have in the works a cabinet for my tablesaw/router assembly. This will complete my garage/shop. I hope to have this tackled this spring

Looks like you have everything planned pretty well.

I use my jointer a lot. Wondering if your location might be a little unhandy? Just a thought.
