Yo whats up everybody Today I spent about 12 hours cleaning up and organizing the whole garage. I installed a custom peg board on the side of a plastic storage rack to hold all of my tablesaw accessories. Behind that peg board on the second shelf down from the top is where I store my spline miter jigs. I wanted another place to put stuff on so I moved the tool box with my hand planes in it and the plastic organizer that holds pencils and marking tools and moved that to where my radio is. Then I glued a piece of hardboard down to top of the plastic storage rack. I ended up moving a box that was above my radio and put that on the other side of the garage so I could put the tool box and plastic organizer where my radio used to be. Then I put the radio on the shelf below. Then I set up 2 spot lights above the tablesaw with a foot switch that turns them on and 2 spot lights next to the scroll saw.

Nice idea on the spot lights. May try that myself.

Way to use those existing shelves. I like the idea of the little spot lights.

Its a lot cheaper to get those small lights then to get bigger lights
