Milo, I am not sure I understand your reluctance to drill the floor and why not go the “framing route”, but I think a framed wall is the best way to partition an area off. The outside of this wall, the side in the shop, if covered with OSB or plywood can be a great place to hang clamps or tools or what ever.

I have my partition walls in the basement shop anchored to the floor and loosely, with thin lauan plywood, attached to the ceiling, but I guess one could do it the other way and attach to the ceiling and just sit on or float just above the floor.

Or, frame up the walls and just stick them to the floor with construction adhesive.

On a side note: If there is a dryer in there and it is vented outside, which it should be, it will suck dust into the laundry room from the shop if you make dust while it is running.

PPS: If there is a dryer in there you know, at least, that you have a source for 220 volt power. Unless it’s a gas dryer.
