How about posting some pictures of your shop when you get the opportunity? Visual tours of other shops are always a welcome post.

Just chuck funds aside when you can. I literally threw all my pocket change in an old popcorn tin for about a year to buy my lathe…

Honestly, your shop looks like where I was about 3 years ago. Do yourself a favor. Organize it now. You will be stunned, and somewhat appalled at how fast the mess creeps up on you…

I gotta ask. Do you have a circular saw yet? If not, get one, and set up a cutting guide. You can do a LOT of work with a circ saw and a cutting guide!

Since you share space with lawn & garden stuff like I do, a suggestion. Find a space to compress all that L&G stuff into, and hang it high. You can use 2×4s with pegs screwed to the studs for racks, or opt for commercially available racks. (Cost more, most likely less reliable, but easier to get, and put in…).

When you go to set up, don’t neglect vertical space when thinking about storage. I am not sure, but it looks like you might have tall ceiling in that garage, if so, then you have PLENTY of storage options. Just look up.
