Usually not more than two 12-cup pots. Mostly it's an excuse for the
sugar and cream...

Here's mine...

First photo is a wall of cabinets I built to hold the usual paint cans,
stains, solvents, cleaners, oil, etc. My bench grinder, small pressure
washer, shopvac bags, etc. all get stored in the upper cabinets too.

The lower cabinets hold oil drip pans and funnels for the cars, tarps and
plastic sheets, small power tools, and small parts boxes. I like the ones
made by Stanley that have the handle built-in. Expensive, about $15 each,
but nice for taking small parts with you. I have one for screws, one for
nuts and bolts, one for small electrical parts, one for small plumbing
parts, etc. I do a lot of work at my in-laws house, so the portability is
very handy.

Wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. are in the rolling red tool cart.

The second photo is the back wall of my garage where I store my lumber
supply. This is mostly still a work in progress. I'm planning to change
this in the future, but for now I stand plywood sheets on edge on the left
side, and the remaining lumber gets stored in the overhead rack or standing
on end on the floor.

My rolling worktable rolls under the lumber rack, and holds my router bits
and tools, squares, and all the tool cases for nailers and other power
tools.

The last photo is the wall I keep my limited selection of clamps,
sawhorses, and ladders.

Lot's to do still, but getting there...

Anthony

If you say so - but what you've done so far looks pretty good to me!

Nice work next thing to do is build a broom stand so the broom bristles
won't get crushed by their own weight. I built one from old press board
scraps. Four identical pieces for the sides of the boxes and two same size
pieces for the top and bottom, one piece has through holes for the handles
the other has almost through holes to accept the ends of the brooms but
locks them in left to right back and forth. Your brooms will last a life
time if stored this way instead of being crushed under there own weight
during storage (99% of there life).

Or you could just drill a hole through the broom handle and hang it on a
nail.....

Rich,

won't get crushed by their own weight.


You caught that eh...

Yep, it's actually one of the items on my to-do list. I just haven't
decided on where I want to keep the brooms yet.

So many projects, so little time...

It's one of my pet peeves. People spend good money for brooms use them a few
times like them and then store them in a way the ruins them and they can't
figure out why the broom doesn't work any more. At work I finally gave up
and put braces sticking out from the top so when stood up the bristles don't
get crushed.

Looks great! But as long as there is still room to park a car, it's not
officially a shop yet. :-)

I splurged on some fairly decent brooms about 5 years ago. They've just
been leaning against a wall when not in use, and they still look and
function the same today as they did 5 years ago.

The bristles on my small broom were curved when I bought it, but I liked
the broom and it was the only one they had in stock. The curve never went
away, but it hasn't gotten any worse either.

Charlie,

Everything hangs on the walls or is mounted on wheels. So I can actually
pull two cars into our garage. Of course, we haven't "parked" a car in
there in the last five years or so.

I do pull the cars in on occasion for auto repairs though.

It's a "multi-use" shop.

Anthony
