Workshop Information

Location
Canada
I've been collecting tools for a while now, buying some whenever they go on sale. My brother started me out with buying me a Rigid 12 inch compound sliding mitre saw as a wedding present and my Uncle has given me a pile of stuff as he upgrades his shop. I also purchased some tools off of Kijiji from a gentlemen who was retiring from woodworking.

My garage, (hopefully soon to be workshop) is just shy of 400 sq ft. Since the "before" picture I have cleaned out the space and laid out all my tools on tables in the basement. What wouldn't fit their I've stored in my mothers garage for the time being.

I have sanded down the walls and put a coat of Boomerang paint. Not sure if the offer this product in the States but its sold in Canada in Rona stores. It is recycled paint which they mix into 16 latex colours with a velvet finish. The also offer 4 oil base paints and 6 stains. Best part, the price, $15 a Gallon, $10 when it is on sale. Here is the website for those who are interested. www.boomerangpaint.com

Now I'm just waiting till it warms up to apply the 2 part epoxy on the poured concrete floors.

UPDATE:

Floors are done, walls are done, and now its winter again. Starting to wonder if I will ever get to build something. I'm hopeful however that I will have a functional workshop this summer, if nothing of course gets in the way.

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your shop when you get the chance to post them. The epoxy will improve your shop by making it easier to clean-up sawdust and any chemical spills. And it does help lighten up the shop as well. It is well worth the effort, in my opinion.
