Its been awhile since I’ve posted but I’ve been super busy and will have to apologize. Here is my newest project. So here was my problem. My home only has a two car garage, since I do not have any designated shop, I decided to turn the right side of the garage into my workspace, I wished I would have taken a before picture but to say the least it was a miserable mess, I origionally had metal stackable shelfs as my workbench and the table saw and bandsaw in a U shape around the right side of the garage. My dear spouse hated this with a passion, it was messy, unorganized and we could only fit one of our two cars in the garage. So she recently had to go to the hospital for an extended stay (she’s ok just a little problem with our new pregnancy). I decided while she was gone I would redo the garage, It took me awhile to figure out how I was going to still have a workspace but be able to fit both cars in the garage. I came up with the solution shown in the picture, I hinged and wall mounted a table to the studs in the wall and use chains to hold the table up, its perfectly level and will hold a remarkable amount of weight, way more than I need for what I do, I built the shelves from some regular 1 by 3s and particle board. The table is a 2by4 frame with mdf as a top, its heavy but I am able to lift it and secure the chains by myself with ease. I think she will be wonderfully surprised when she comes home and see’s the difference so I really enjoyed every second of figuring out how to make it work and the actual build. Thanks for looking.
