I like browsing shops of other members so I wanted to start a thread of my shop. We recently moved from the city to the country mid summer of last year. We had to make a quick decision to get this place so the move was not only intense but we didn't have much time for organization. I really couldn't place things or build shelves etc. until this year. Some of these have already been changed due to more stuff accumulating. We still have stuff at the old place
The garage now my shop needed a lot of work. The roof was rusted, the door needed painting, & I found out later during a hard rain it would flood on the right side because of no gutters. I have since then wire brushed, primed, & painted the roof. I scraped, primed & painted the front door & put new locks on the entry door. The inside was painted a hunters green so I sprayed two coats of white to brighten it up. I'll probably insulate & cover all the interior walls with OSB board this fall. I salvaged some gutters from a friends house. Getting these gutters here was exciting. I have a ten foot bed on my trailer. I placed two feet in front of the trailer, plus the ten feet on the trailer & still had fifteen feet hanging off the back. I know that's about as illegal as one could get but I wanted long lengths. I had to haul them about twenty five miles passing one police station. I knew if I could get passed that it was country roads all the way home. It looked like a giant scorpion with it's tail stretched out. I only have a single 110 line out there now but will be putting 220 under ground soon.
So far I just placed things pretty much close to where they might end up. I do a lot of woodworking & of coarse the GT fever I suffer with. I presently have four GT's in my shop & another in boxes packed away. Three of these I use on a regular basis, the Cub needs some engine work & presently is a non runner. I don't have the time or funds to build a shed right now so soon I will be moving three of these outside on a pallet covered with plastic & a tarp over them.
I want to build a table on wheels for my MF12 so I can start painting the finish coat & getting it back together. I have seen many of these used on here but in a clear area to be able to move it around. I plan on buying the 20 ton press from HF so I have to make a place for it. This is the only thing that doesn't have a designated place right now.
In this pic is the large too high work bench that was left by the PO. On it is mostly the parts for the MF12 plus some other engine parts. I need this to be about 3"-4" lower because of the large vise & using it to work on engines etc.
Instead of moving everything off I will be jacking it up one end at a time & cutting 3 1/2" off of each leg. This table has 3x4 solid oak legs so I will be using a Sawzall with a coarse blade. I want to do this quickly because I don't want to be a fat greasy spot in my own shop. Lol
Next up I'll probably be building the metal shelf unit & lowering the large bench so stay tuned in because I have a lot of plans & changes in my head & will be doing more later. All comments & suggestions are welcomed & appreciated
