United States

My workshop consists of a 25×30 shop space, with 16’-18’ high ceilings and two 8’ wide by 10’ high roll-up doors. The shop also serves as overflow storage for household items along one wall.

My intended use for the shop is to have a space to work on various home-maintenance projects as well as furniture construction and various other woodworking projects. I have a street-legal golf cart as well and I do some work on that in this space as well.

I’m hoping to eventually add welding to the shop but so far I have no experience with welding so that’s a long-term goal.

I currently have a 10” Ridgid chop saw and the pancake compressor in the picture below has since been replace by a California Air Tools 10 gallon compressor shown in the second picture. As well as, obviously, a variety of smaller tools like routers, circular saws, hand tools, etc. I’m planning a table saw purchase shortly.

I recently added a conduit lumber rack which I posted in my blog, and I’m planning a hybrid french-cleat/slatwall system along the walls.

I am definitely planning a loft, even if just for basic household item storage. Hopefully along the back wall above the lumber rack.

Thanks for the comments and the welcome!

Great looking shop! And wow those are massive walls. I wish my shop had a 16’ eve height, it would make for a much better loft storage than I am dealing with.

Yeah, the high ceilings are awesome, right up until you have to change all the light bulbs!

Looks great! thanks for posting Rob.

How do you like your new CAT compressor. I have had my eye on one of those for a while. Is it as quiet as advertised?

I love the CAT! So super quiet, not to mention it really holds pressure which means it’s not kicking on all the time when I’m not using it either. I do kinda wish I’d have gotten a bigger tank size, but it’s not really been an issue.
