« Part 2: I have too much stuff Part 3 of A new begining series Part 4: The extreme budget workbench »

After putting in three 9+ hour days, I have a workable shop. I still need to do a lot more organization and clean up, but it’s usable. I am going to be making a workbench this weekend.

Cordless stuff and all the chargers out and powered up. I am kind of a Milwaukee fan

Sanders and the measuring/marking tools

Wood. I tried to deplete my stash before moving, but I still have quite a bit of maple, ash, purple heart and walnut. I need to make a proper wood storage rack before all of this warps

Lots of empty space. This is where the 6’ workbench will go.

The other end of the shop. It looks tight in pictures but there is a lot of room

3’x6’ outfeed/assembly table with power strips on each side and the end

Spindle sander, grinder, DP and lathe

Lathe and tools

Dreamy, as far as I’m concerned.

That’s going to make a fine shop, congrats. Do you have any thoughts or provisions for heat?

Bert – It’s a weird 2 car garage. It was a one car at some point and someone added another bay. It’s 20’ deep and 30’ long.

I’m going to do get a williams direct vent NG heater eventually. There is no gas to the garage currently, but unlike my old house I am not going to have to go very far. The gas meter is about 6 feet away

Looking good Joe but way too tidy.
Got to get some projects going in there to clutter it up a bit. ... :-)

Paul, you mean like this? I’ve been busy this morning/afternoon whipping up the “no plans entry table” for my new office. I hope it comes out somewhat decent
