Eddy, this is a really nice shop space that you two have in which to work. I like the epoxy paint on the shop floor. I am sure that it makes clean-ups a breeze. You have organized your shop well and it looks like you have plenty of room in which to work.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Nicely laid out shop. I have a concrete floor in my shop and am considering painting it. How do you like the red floor?

i like it better than the standard gray. my old garage had a gray floor and if droped a nail or screw it was very hard to see.
i used bear floor paint you can get it in 5 gallon bucket and they will tint it any color you want
i will have to update the pic. of my daughter lathe bench we are redoing it this weekend so it is easery to
clean up

I LOVE the shop floor!

Home Depot near me recently started carrying the Krylon (I think it’s Krylon anyway) floor epoxy coating system. They offer a bright red like that. I am SERIOUSLY considering that for my shop floor… For the reasons you quote. With standard gray concrete, it is hard to see dropped small hardware…

Like your table saw, I have the same one. A little envious of the space you have, but looks like a comfortable place to work.

I like the pix of your shop. Very neat and well organized. I need to get some photo’s of mine and post them. My shop looks like heck compared to yours. Is that a 4 car garage? What’s the square footage? Mine is a 20×20 2 car garage.

Really nice shop, eddy. Love the floor, too.
1/2 of my shop floor is flake board. The other half is natural colored concrete. Talk about losing screws!
