24X24 detached garage. Winter 2006, I installed a ceiling mounted 70kBTU furnace. Hated to get rid of wood stove, but it was cheap and took up too much room in a small workshop. 16” deep upper cabinets, birch ply, oak frame doors with galv panels. Lots of pegboard and slot wall. Included a pic of my shop built MDF tool cabinet. Someday hope to get a solid wood one built to reflect my current skill level rather than my budget.

Hi Tooldad,

Thanks for the shop post. The galvanized panels are a unique touch to your cabinetry. I like the use of the pegboard as well. It helps with storage of small tools. You have a nice shop. I am looking forward to seeing some of your projects.

Not such a bad shop! I bet the one at school is bigger, though! :) My High School Shop Teacher was my inspiration for this, I find it wonderful that there are folks out there willing to carry on that fine tradition! That was 18 years ago. I wonder what Mr. Hudson is doing now? :)

Nice shop, I have been meaning to make myself a tool cabinet for a while now, all I have is two red metal tool boxes, its more mechanic than woodworker… I won’t even let them in the shop, they just stay outside the door by the air compressor and dust collector haha. Thanks for the tour!
