The garage – lots of updates

Well – I’ve been noticeably gone from here for awhile.  I dont even want to look and see when the last post was.  At any rate, I have some garage progress to report.  Namely, I’m done will all of the built in cabinets with the exception of the doors and drawers!  The last area I had to work on was my work bench and I literally just finished that up.  Looks like this…

Im pretty happy with how it turned out.  The bench itself is two different heights.  I wanted to make it high enough to store tools underneath when I wasn’t using them.  On the left, I can fit my table saw and on the right I can slide my router table underneath.  The two ‘ends’ of the bench will have large pull out storage drawers on them.  The top of the bench is a butcher block like material I made by edge glueing 2x4s.  Here’s a closer look…

I also added shelves on the top that span the entire length of both sides of the work bench.  Im hoping this means hat my work bench wont be just full of crap all the time since I have so much work area.

I also just got done with two sets of holders for my clamps and a rack to hold my ladders.  Im pretty happy with how they turned out too…

So we’re getting close.  I’d like to wrap up the ceiling and the small areas of wall I need to paint soon.  Then all I have left would be the doors for the cabinets and the drawers which I can sort of do as I have time.

Slow progress but it’s still progress!
