New workshop addition



I have a new corner, or wall, in the workshop. Made a quick bench out at my dad’s shop, using his power tools, mainly because I don’t really have room for anything major. Used two old drawers and built around them. Put the new bench in. Just put the stainless top on it. Hung some pegboard. Nice little home for the dehumidifier and fixtures underneath. Drawers for my sharpening items. I hung the pegboard from the wall with big brackets over the aluminum bar. At some point I can make storage up top, maybe 18″ deep of open rail shelving, for wood or lightweight fixtures, etc… Not much more I can fit in the shop.

Most of my hand tool storage. My take on a french cleat.


Workshop getting closer.  Added some more lighting.  Finished storage for most of my tools.  I need to find the doors in the basement and put them back on. Working on some wood racks in the other room, which is stacked with stuff, as are my cabinets.  Then I can get down to working on something other than the shop.

Putting racks in the dungeon


Fabricated and installed the aluminum rails on 3 walls in my shop.  Bent up a bunch of hanging brackets as well.  3/4” material sits right against the wall when padded with 1/16” of  felt.  All my walls are stone or brick so installing is a pain, but now I can put anything up on these.  Hung a couple things so far, much more to go.
