Well, I haven’t been on here in a while because I finally purchased a home and have been busy transforming the garage into my future workshop.
Wow. What a process. It is a detached garage and had nothing. No insulation or outlets to speak of.
I am finally done insulating and putting up osb s

Put in new outlets and now paint.
I would love some suggestions on bench set up on the back wall and side. I have a table saw/router table and work table that are both on casters. This will be so if I need to pull my truck in I can move them out if the way.
Hope you like the pics. It’s a work in progress. Been at it for about 8 days.

Lot of work for sure, but you’ll make it work.

Having a blank canvas to work with is fun. Good luck with your shop and have a good time while setting it up!

New space is looking good. Consider painting the floor with a light colored epoxy garage floor paint. I painted mine and with the off white walls, the shop is brighter at night than during the day. I even have two skylights to help during the day.

Sealing the floor can also help with the humidity. So does good air conditioning. Especially if you are storing and/or drying wood.
