« Part 5: Wall Cabinet #2 Build Part 6 of My Garage/Work Shop Makeover series Part 7: New Miter Saw Station »

Over this past weekend, I finished trimming out the cabinets that were built for the cubbie hole. The way I applied the trim, the cabinets now look like one. I can’t image anyone wanting to take them down in the future.

Also, when I demoed the old work bench I took the existing pegboard down from the wall. I found a new home for it! It is now residing on a portion of the wall that is adjacent to a door. It has never been used because there is only a few inches of useable space. I now have a new home for some of my templates, track saw tracks and the pocket hole jig. It is working out nicely with no interference when opening the door.

Next up in this makeover is a new miter saw station. I am still thinking about it and sketching a few design options. I hope to get a good bang for my buck with room for storage in cabinets underneath the extension tables, shop vac beneath the saw, upper cabinets on the wall and possibly room for a couple of my sanders.

Very nice. I’d like to read a review of your track saw system too.

Thanks whitebeast88.

“Very nice. I’d like to read a review of your track saw system too.”

Thanks Buckethead. I will be cutting some more plywood this week. So far, no problems with the saw or tracks. I would like to get a little more use and experience before writing up a review.

Very slick! That’s a great spot for the repurposed pegboard. I’m fresh out of available wallspace in my 2-stall garage, or I’d steal that.

I really like everything you’ve done so far, especially the two cabinets over your toolbox. I may have to steal your design…

Keep up the great work!
