« Part 2: 1st things 1st - Need to a working Vac of sorts Part 3 of My Little Shop Progress series Part 4: Let there be light... and breath »

Time to get some peg board up and small shelving trays. Every time I go into the shop now, I find myself planning out where things ought to go and some accessory builds that is going to be needed. I’m amazed how much I stand in there look around and just think. Maybe I’m just procrastinating and wishing it ‘done.’

You are doing a lot better than me. I put peg boards up months ago for my hand tools and still have not hung anything on them yet. Your shop is coming along slow but sure. Are you going to insulate? Thanks for posting.

God Bless

I can do the same thing. Just walk in and think. The difference is, I usually KNOW I’m procrastinating. It’s coming along well. I hope to catch up to your progress this weekend, but its supposed to be almost 100 degrees, so I doubt I’ll get too far.

Looking good, that pegboard will also help with the light reflection, looks like you have a lot of good daylight to work with as well, I won’t mention the curtains though.
I like the tool shelf idea above the work stations. Can you give us an idea of the how those ones were built? I see kind of a bin in the third picture.

That peg board should really help with tool organizing.

This should be a big asset in tool storage and make your tools handy to get to. Please post pictures after you have all your tools arranged.

Thanks for sharing.

Good Luck!

Everyone… thank you.

clieb91- The tool shelf you speak of (tray). For that third pic is over my lathe table. But it is not attached to the lathe. The whole table moves (wiggles) when I’m turning something out of round, especially when roughing out log blanks.

The table top for the lathe table is an unused kitchen counter top. So it has a back splash on it. I reinforced it with pocket screws. The (tray) is also pocket screwed in and then screwed int the wall. The ledge for the (tray) is just a 2×4 ripped, cut to length and brad nailed on. I’ll do the same with the other pegboard shelf.
