Welcome, I have built several sets of kitchen cupboards, all things related to restoring an old house, along with lots of pieces of furniture. I put in a natural gas heater, it gets cold up here in Montana. My only regret is that I wish I would have painted the ceiling and walls white before I filled up the shop with tools. Best purchase was my grizzly dust collector, wynn filters, and the diverter box. I also have a ceiling mounted fine dust collector. Manage the dust or it will get you. My garage is sold concrete, 2/3’ s buried in hill, with a patio on top. I have traded tools all my life and these have served me well. I have big wood storage area in basement, so that is nice not taking up room in garage. I plumbed the air from compressor with a couple of loops of copper pipe, with drains in low areas, then around shop with Rapid Air piping. Nice system. This has been a 20 year project, constantly evolving. Lots led lighting, that is a great improvement. I have the long ranger system on my dust collection piping, open a blast gate and the cyclone automatically comes on. I always enjoy others shops, thanks for posting. I have found a lot of ideas on this site, lots of solutions, and bucketfuls of knowledge, thanks.

Starting in the first picture:

Your piece of paradise looks fantastic! I particularly like your drawer bank. Drawers are definitely better for most storage than doors and shelves. Thanks for sharing!
