Here's some closer to current shots of mine. I'm still not done yet, and I don't think I have enough lights....



In a while, Chet.

Perhaps, putting some white semi gloss paint on the OSB board would reflect the light a bit better.

agreed. You would would need about 40 percent less light. Saves on the energy bill

That's quite a rec-room you've got there.
I especially like the workbench/bar combo.

Well, I thought I'd give this thread one more bump to the top.
It's my favorite thread and I think it deserves a bump after a couple of months of falling down the page list. Got to be a lot of you out there who haven't given us a peak at your shop yet.

Here is the shop I just moved into, it is 30x60 and I plan on making it the base of operations for my performance engine shop. It is kind of a project by itself.

Oh yeah!!!

My "day" job is building Equipment that takes rolls of paper a lot bigger than that and turns them into napkins and hand towels and stuff.

That roll started out at least 8 feet tall and weighed a couple thousand pounds. That is just the little bit that was left over and I took it for the shop.

Here are some photos of the paper rolls and machines we build, and some of the CNC machines we have....we do all of our machining "in house"

The business I was in used to use those roll handling machines.......Rewinders, slitters, windups on our lamination/extrusion/coating equipment.........mostly plastic rolls, but occasionally a bit of paper. Have a couple of butt rolls of paper too....stuff comes in handy.

You have to get the good stuff though, most of the paper we get is pretty thin, but occasionally you come across some nice air laid embossed paper, or even the stuff that they make shop wipes out of...you have to get dibs on that stuff pretty early.

Is it thick enough to keep you finger from poking through if so it would save me from having to get up to get a new roll

Wow. That sure is heavy duty looking with the OSB on the walls and ceiling. Are you going to leave it unpainted?

This is pictures of my air system. My garage is too messy to photograph at this time.

This is in the front of my garage for dry air. This is what I'll paint with.


This is an expanded view of the same system


This is in the back of my garage. The left is for my blaster and the right has an inline oiler for air tools. The riser goes up and over to the front of my garage for dry air


This is just an outlet in my shop that's built on my garage.
