Re: Your Shop


my garage is really a 14x30 shed with a 7'x7' overhead door and a pt pw floor. its pretty tight but i make it work. i just slapped up a 6x8 shed off the side of the garage to house the lawn equipment for the winter. with out that i had to push everything outside before i could do any work.
i actually am starting to use my shop alot lately, doing lots of build-ins and cabinets.
i am planning on building a new garage at some point, already have the cad drawings done.

I've been in your shop and it's no where near that clean!

Re: Your Shop


Here is my cluttered shop. I will have quite a few cabinets to build this winter so I will get it organized before I have to spend days working in there.

Re: Your Shop


Now here is the real mess I hate to show you but what the heck

My storage space above my office. I really need to empty this out and clean it up. It could be a great storage area if I organized it.
Your Shop-img_1329.jpg

This garage space is part of my office and was intended to be for pulling my truck into. As you can see that is not going to happen. At least I keep my garage at home nice and clean.

My office is could be neater. I would fire the girl in the office but the severance package would be a killer. She is my wife. Thats a topic for another thread

Re: Your Shop


I usually start with a nice clean shop but by the end of a job I am suffocating on my own production and can't wait to make a delivery.

It's just exterior tin hung sideways

I glad to see I'm not the only one with a bike in my shop. It's always in the way but I can't bring myself to put it somewhere else. In the dead of winter I mutter motorcycle sounds under my breath as I push it form one end of the shop to the other

I still like HoneyDoKreg's Kitchen shop the best.

Did I say messy, what I meant was out of control messy not just a might bit disorganized.

I like you set-up, you maximized your small space.

I would suggest a dust collection sytem, watch CL, you can find them on there all the time for 100-200. It will suck harder then that shop vac and make working in a smaller spot nicer.

Hey I was in there cleaning for a few hours and have already removed some plywood out, rolls of insulation and 55 gallons of crap wood burnt up to keep me warm. looks like I may be in there for a week.

How I fit a jeep in there to paint I don't know.

the shop vac isnt bad, it is 5hp but i am already looking at dust collectors.
i kind of want to wait till i build the new shop before i buy anything big but if something comes up for a good deal i might have to make room.

what i have been looking at more is the air filter that hangs on the ceiling. its get dusty in there sanding sometimes.
