Prince George, VA 23875
United States

This is my workshop. As with many out there it is always a work in progress. It is a 24X24 two-car garage that is half auto and half woodshop. I am always trying to maximize the limited room for as much “stuff” as I can cram into it. I saw a project in the April 2001 edition of Workbench magazine that involved lining the walls with 1X6 materials (I chose pine) that is lipped at the top edge to hang anything I want on it. I separated each horizontal row by about 3/4” for this reason. I have posted several projects of which are set in my shop. My passion for woodworking has always been there but a career in the Army sort of set it aside for almost 25 years. Hard to do craftswork when you are not even home most of the time. This shop is my passion to constantly seek to improve upon. I hope to rebuild my cabinets early next year to something that is a bunch more appealing. The wall workbench was a hurried project to get my tools out of my closets in the house.

Mitch, this is certainly a nice looking shop that you have put together. I really like the slat wall storage that you built. This is an excellent system for organizing shop tools and accessories that is also pretty economical to build and easily customized. You also have a nice set of tools to play with as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

I am really loving that slat wall setup you have there. Excellent choice. Very functional, and it looks great.
