My wife and I moved recently and the place had almost zero garage storage (small garage on top of things). I have spent the last 2 months trying to get it where I want it so that I can finally start making things again.
The cabinets are all 3/4 MDF sealed and painted. Originally, the drawer boxes were too. I learned this was a mistake after 2 of them came apart under load. Switch to plywood boxes to keep cost down. The top is a layer of OSB, and layer of 3/4 MDF, and a layer of tempered hardboard; and milled 2×4 on the other side for a cheap bench (I will be adding a vise later). Lumber rack is lag screwed into the studs.
Miter Saw Area/Lumber Storage
With rolling tools in place
Still in the works: A small wall cabinet for hand tools and the like above the lathe. PVC ductwork for dust collection (just got the blastgates and hood). Raised support for miter station to the right of blade (piano hinged to get it out of the way) and collapsing support to the left.
Thoughts and suggestion would be welcome.
Oh, and I can still park my car in there.
