« Part 1: 8' x 24" x 4" torsion box above PM66 and Unisaw for Drill Press and Miter saw: Test Run Part 2 of Garage Organization series no next part

I had a couple PM’s asking where I’ve been. I’ve been kind of in the midst of a total make over for my 2 car garage, doing things the right way this time around instead of the hurry up way. I plan on putting things up in the project section soon as some projects need the final touches but yet are currently functional for use. Also, some reviews of items I’ve purchased.
WARNING: my shop is a disaster. Still a work in progress after such changes.

not yet finished assembly/outfeed table with formica top and clamp station

sanding cabinet where I store all my sandpaper and hand held sanders

my fully operational Death Star.

finally…great dust collection for my miter saw

miter saw station with Kreg stops and rails. 10’ on the left, 4’ to the right.

router cabinet. a home for all things router related

craigslist $100 find. will be helpful when in a rush. so far, works like buttah

$250 local auction find. New in box 15” Wen drill. Helped greatly for the 45 forstner bit holes I had to make for the parallel clamp station And down below is the auction find for a blower to help with garage cleanup.

Foley handsaw sharpener. Used it a couple times. Must learn how to use it correctly. In due time.

Tore out my old metal HVAC 6” ducting and replaced with 6” PVC and more efficient routing

Looks great! I’m in the process of doing something similar. That’s a lot of pipe. What motor are you using for your dust collector?
