Here is my messy shop!! (I’ll do a before and after shot)
This is the before
I know it needs a clean up and organizing….but I never do work when its messy for safety sake.

I have a rack for wood and sheet goods pullout that I made last year that I’m proud of.
I did a work bench with hardwood flooring and 1” Baltic brich
When I clean up I’ll take another picture.

Right now I have wooden tool cabinet that I started sitting on the bench…doors are made too,
so that well be my first job to do…finish it,mount it and do the draws and tool hangers/holders etc

I have an old organ with a leslie speaker that I will remove for guitar effects..of which I have two to make custom cabinets to house the large rotating foam drums.

Then I need to do an armoire for my son’s room (9 years old) so it will not be a kids unit but a college type??

I have to figure out were my band,chop,and table saws should go than I have a wood lathe and a small 6” joiner also might buy a thickness planer too….dust collection?

I share the two car garage with household recycling, kids bics and other toys and storage.

It’s temp until I get a shop out back
Thanks wish me luck!

Dave, it does look like you have a lot going on in there. Bummer about all the “non-essentials” being stored in your shop space but I guess they have to go somewhere. Occasionally my wife and I have “discussions” about this. It seems that whenever she needs to store something the first place she looks is in my shop. But it does look like you have a lot of potential with the space that you have available.

I like your lumber rack. Using iron pipe as support was a good idea. I built something similar in my shop and, like you, put my sheet goods storage underneath the lumber rack. This saves quite a bit of shop real estate and the iron pipe, which being excellent supports for lumber, do not take up a lot of room so you can put more wood in the rack.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Good space and some good tools too. A little clean up and you’ll be ready to rock and roll.

Thanks guys it gives me lots of energy to know we’re in it together..thats why I chose my Nickname as Woodenships.

Quick question..what should I do with the many many assorted nails (all kinds) I have…cause it seems I haven’t used them for years …especially since I have a two inch nail gun..?

I’ll be going to the dump this weekend…a couple boxs are for charity then as Jim says its rock N roll time
Winter coming and I’ll need to insulate the metal garage door too!

Good question on the nails, Dave. Like you, I have several coffee cans of assorted sizes that I have not been able to bring myself to toss. When I need to drive a nail I will use one of my air nailers rather than pick up a hammer just like when I need to drive a screw I will invariably use my cordless drill rather than one of the screwdrivers that I have. I guess at some point we will have to muster up the courage to simply get rid of them and use the space for something more important. :)

Hey woodenships,
Your shop will come out real good….it takes a little time and effort….and as for nail, screw storage, try using clear screw top jars with the lids attached to a board or shelf. You will see the contents and they are out of the way.!

Thanks for the comment on my display shelf. All those 2’’ nails sound perfect for building a storage shed next year. Then you might be able to have some room for your work shop. It’s a pitty to have the bosch chop saw buried like that.
