After my garage was flooded from a burst water pipe a little over a year ago, I began rebuilding my shop. I completely re-wired, insulated, drywalled and painted the shop. The 1st pic is where I locate my smaller mobile tools and mobile storage cabinets. I installed a 30 amp heater that works really great and is fairly cheap to operate. My refrigerator where I store and dispense my kegged home-brewed beer. Above the fridge is my television, dvd player and satellite radio receiver. The 2nd pic is the deep sink used for cleaning out beer kegs, glasses and racks from the pellet smoker, my steel tip horsehair dart board and part of the new cabinets I built with the wife’s assistance. The 3rd pic is the shallow cabinet with sliding doors that hold glue, hardware and several shop accessories and tools. The 4th pic is my shop built cabinets that provide tool storage and support my benchtop tools. The 5th pic is my drill-press cabinet that holds all my bits, machinist vise, pen mills and various jigs for various projects, and next to the drill press is my dust collector with separator. The final pic is my wood rack and bellow that is some temporary clamp storage and a mobile cabinet I built before the flood for my lathe and grinder and in front of that is my table saw. Not pictured because I can only post 6 pics is my shop built air cleaner and the 4 each 8’ long T8 fluorescent light fixtures that illuminate my man cave. For the electrical I installed an 80 amp sub panel from my main breaker box in each wall 4 extra 20 amp 110 volt outlets each set of outlets are on independent circuits. The light fixtures are also on separate circuits. All was completed to code and inspected.
This was a lot of fun and I learned a lot but none of it would have been possible without the support and help from my loving wife. Thanks for viewing!
