Just got it a little cleaned up after my last project and thought I would get some pics before another project gets started. I work out of our two car garage, took the roll up door off, it was pretty bad and kept dripping on my table saw when it rained, put in two sliding doors that open from the center out to 8’. Wish I had more room but it does ok for now, Its hard trying to be productive and having to keep pulling out tools to use the, then put them back, then pull out another one, then put it back so I can pull out another one, takes a lot of time.

Have all the standard tools and clamps, need some better dust collection, next project. Bench is my first wood working project from my kids room, they didn’t want it and I couldn’t get rid of it, put a solid core door from a office demo on the top, very solid, the hutch I used on the wall for storage.

Heres a shot out the door to my finishing room (drive way)

Z, this is a nice shop space that you have. It is well organized and the slat wall is pretty effective at storing tools and is both sturdy and effective. It does look like you have made excellent use of the space that you have to work with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

I’d love to see some detail on how you did the garage door replacement. I keep toying with the idea of building a removable wall to replace one of my garage doors with. This would give me a place to mount a window unit A/C, AND provide a better way to insulate the space…

Thanks everyone,

Masrol, been collecting stuff for about 8 yrs, adding a little here and there.

db, sorry I don’t have any pics of building the doors, they work really great if I want to cut long boards or sheets. I did put in a window unit on one side, it doesn’t show in the picture but you can see it on this post, I used the same sliding door rails on the shed door. The doors on the garage need to be refinished and sealed and could use a larger window unit, it gets pretty hot in TX and there is no insulation in the walls.

very nice little set up there! I have a leather chair too but no space to put it in my shop it’s good to see you have a rough looken shop with a piece of luxury in there not that the top of the line tools aren’t luxury. :)

This a great workshop. You are lucky to have so much space. I know it is cramped but you have more space than alot of woodworkers.
