Today’s goal was to get Sylvia’s Car into the garage. That meant that I had to finish up a few work bench projects and then move my stuff back into the workshop.
I replaced the wooden peg board and and permanently mounted my Access Point and tool bar.
|At first I had the Access point here. Then I moved it.|
|I added my tool bar and moved the WiFi access point closer to the power panel.|
Yeah I know all about ethernet being too close to electrical power. I will move it later.
I got the drawer mounted and I built a rolling box for my power tools. I got the inspiration for the rolling box from April Wilkerson. I used a plastic tray that a mold contractor left at our house a few years ago. I mad the plastic crate fit on to a lolling platform. I can remove the crate and use the wooden dolly to move other items.
|These 2x2s allow the crate to remain stationary on the wooden dolly.|
|Thsi is the wooden dolly. I painted one end of the crate and the dolly so that I know which end matches.|

I built a lumber rack to store long pieces of wood. I am following the design ideas that I got from watching several woodworkers on YouTube. I have a small shop, but I am adding several elements that all shops have and a place to store wood material is one of them.
Here are some final shots.

The toilets are going into the bathroom projects.
|The complete view of the garage. I built some shelves on the back wall to store stuff.|
The metal work bench that was in my shop is on the left near the freezer.
It took a long time to get an organized garage, it almost took all summer.

|My wife’s birthday wish was to have her car in the garage today.|
I made it happen.
All in all I am happy with the garage and the workshop. I still have a lot of tweaking and organizing to do. One thing that I like about
my workshop is that I still have places to store stuff. the larger work surfaces of the work benches and the drawers will allow me to categorize my tools in the future.
