Until I hit the Loto or I find out that the Wood Whisper is my rich uncle I will have to share the garage/ my wood shop with my wife’s car… So I started building a work bench then a bench top for my bench tools then a tool shelf rack and finally a roller cart.. I made all with the idea of moving them out to when in use then after cleaning up I can store them so her car will not get any dew on it ..LOL… I will post each of these in my project ..

I empathize. I do the same with my garage. Nice tables and stands.

Nice use of space! I really like the taller shelf which houses all of your main tools…cool idea. I am sharing too, but I am sharing with the boxes that have not needed to be unpacked. We moved to Dallas from Atlanta due to a work transfer. The shop is half my tools, and the other half are packed (sealed) boxes. The only problem is the dust covers EVERYTHING! I am constantly planing, jointing wood so the dust is crazy. I don’t have a dust collection, so you can only imagine. I have to sweep/vacuum up after each time I use the shop. We currently rent our house because we weren’t sure WHERE (city/country) we wanted to purchase…and I still own my house back in Atlanta…that’s a whole other problem in itself!

Hey don’t let your wife park her car in there,it only makes her think it’s a garage. you need to have her know it’s a shop not a garage. :)) One more thing ,when you tell her that, could you make a video of it just so we all can see the fire works LOL Nice work table.

The garage/ shop is looking neat and organized with your nicely built work bench and rack. Great job!

Being that she’s a Trauma Nurse.& I’m a Paramedic . I know when to hold’em when to fold’em.. but mostly when to RUN ! LOL .. After I complete my projects I sweep up the bigger stuff then use a leaf blower and blow off everything in the garage and it really helps keep the dust under control…next big project will be a dust collection system…

Thanks for all the comments…
