Default My mess of a shop

Dave showed his shop, so here's my mess. When we moved in all the stuff that had been in storage ended up in the garage. 5 boxes of crap went out today and there's still more to sort through. :(

I just bought some of those metal shelves Sunday to use as workbenches. Layed out the way they are, they give me 16' of workspace. All of the "benches" will get 3/4" MDF tops and some extra shelf support from the MIG welder. I figure the first area will be where I weld/braze. I'll probably put a steel top on that bench. The Sherline will end up on this side at the other end with the belt/disc sander. The two center benches will be a basic work area.


Here's a shot of the other side of the garage where I had been cramming all the tools...and trying to use them in such cramped space. The only things left are the scroll saw, a little air compressor, grinder, drill press, and band saw. Now I'll have enough room to spread them out and work comfortably. I slapped one of those vertical rotating fans on the bench to help stay cool.


Here's the paint booth, tool chest, AC/Heater, cabinet, fridge, radio, and a portion of the mess that still needs to be cleaned up.


The rest of the mess should get cleaned up this week, with pegboard going in this weekend.

Hey now....we just bought the house in April!

You don't want to see the Hobby/pooter room. 8O

But for me a clean desk means I can usually find my tools.

skyjacker_rc_club, the paint booth is pretty slick. Powered by Shop-Vac. (Judging from the overspray in Randy's shop, I think he could use one, BTW )

Dave...this weekend the pegboard goes in.

My shop looks a lot like RandyatBBY's, about the same amount of crap only crammed into a smaller space. 8O Mountain bikes, weight bench, tires and wheels, bass fishing equipment, camping stuff, weedeaters, Toyota, Samurai, Nissan, F150 and Nova big block parts, a deep freezer, power tools, 4 R/C trucks, etc. All this in a 12'x16' building! I have that same 8-drawer top/3-drawer bottom Craftsman box in there too. I'll get a picture tomorrow.

Decided to get to work on it tonight...in-laws will be here Monday or Tuesday of next week. I want to get the garage cleaned up so we can build a table for my daughter's Thomas train stuff.

Here's what it looks like as of now.

I have so much junk in my shed it was hard for me to get in there to take a picture.... so here's one from outside looking in



The area I call my 'workbench' is actually the bottom half of our old kitchen door that I replaced last summer. You can see where the hinges where mounted.

Nice shop ya got there Jason, appears there is no room for an actual vehicle to park in the garage yet though Also looks like your LawnBoy could use a wheel on the left front What is on the border on the wall? Looks like trucks or someting? Curious aren't I?

There was room for an actual vehicle when all the chit was crammed up against the wall. :( Now I've got a few things sitting in the center that need to get cleaned up.

The Lawn-Boy is missing both front tires as of now...they've been pulled off. The mower is a rear drive, self-propelled set-up. You get one guess what will happen to it.

The border...I've caught so much crap about it from the guys here in town:

"That's the prettiest garage I've ever seen."

"What're you doing? Trying to make a bedroom out here?"

"Where's the matching curtains?"

I have the woman that was renting the house prior to us buying it to thank for the beautiful old car border on the walls. Apparently she thought all that border crap was a good thing.

Hmmmm, Lawnboy is missing the front tires. My guess is that it will soon get some sort of spindles on the front, one or two 1/4 scale servos, some radio gear and it will become a remote operated lawn mowing device :P Ah, I like the border.......... really adds a nice touch to the manly garage you've got there. Maybe replace it with some nice crown molding painted a complimentary color. Very nice, organized place you got goin' there.

Brass pole and a stage huh? Don't think the wife would be too happy with that. Although, if you did I just might have to finally drive to Georgia and help you with the hiring process for the pole/stage operators

I do have pics of the booth, the entire construction process, actually.

BUT...

I wrote an article about it (and the F350 body in it) for RC Driver, so technically it wouldn't be right for me to publish the stuff online.

It'll be in RC Driver soon.

I know it's not what you wanted to hear...but when it comes out in the mag you'll be able to build your own.

I might have to buy that mag just to see your articles! Can you get me a good deal on a subscription? ;)
