Wood Shop Redux (the old shop *is* the new shop) Part 1-Storage Wall

Page 1 of 2  
My old shop building (since 2001):
http://www.e-woodshop.net/images/Shop2.jpg
... succumbed to subsidence in 2008 and the equipment was moved to a temporary location:
http://www.e-woodshop.net/images/TempShop0.jpg
I have since remodeled the old building, brought it back to a hopefully usable life, and the time is nigh to move the equipment back on premises. While it will be good to get my beloved shop back where I can walk out the back door on a whim again, the downside is a loss of about 25% shop space from the temporary quarters ... ouch!
In preparation for the move, I've been spending weekends and spare time endeavoring to make the newly renovated building looking like a shop again, along with trying to organize it to make best use of limited space.
The first step was to organize some storage space, storage that will hopefully be more efficient, less prone to leaving things laying about, and less subject to being sawdust covered in relatively cramped quarters.
Although the cobbler's kid is the last to have shoes, getting a start on it so far:

... more to come as things develop. Just remember, it's just a shop, not a high dollar kitchen. ;)

Looking good! Why no pictures of the "other side of the shop"? LOL
Concerning the kitchen comment, surely there is a spot in there to place a Flavia machine in an other wise unused space. And couldn't you set up an adapter to your router table to power your blender bowl for Margaritas? ;~)

The first time I san the picture with you using the track saw a few days ago. it took me a while to realize you were "outside the box" in the sun, rather than inside the "box" under the roof. LOL.

That outside storage area would be a perfect spot for the air compressor. One thing I hate is when that damn thing goes off when I'm trying to listen to my favorite radio talk show host.

I can't quite tell, but are the doors mdf or plywood and what sort of hinges are you using ???
They look to be euro types...
More pictures...
Looks great considering where you started from.

MDF ... from just two sheets I've had leftover from jig and fixture making and other uses. This is basically a "reclamation" project, as I'm using as much stored up material, plywood, hinges, drawer slides (even drawers) etc that I can find on hand ... won't have much place left to store the stuff, so the method serves a dual purpose.

Salice Silentia Soft-Close ... again, overage from a previous cabinet job.

Thanks ... strictly a spare time project evenings and weekends, and one that is about to wear an old man out working on it alone. Be glad to get the shop moved so I can take a weekend off ... problem is I have at least three large custom furniture projects awaiting the new setup, so that blows that theory all to hell.

Yep, A practice I call constructive recycling. I am doing a bit of that myself these days.

For those who are metaphorically challenged: You don't need a big shop to create masterpieces... all you need is a few good tools... oh..and a bit of skill..<G>

Looks like it is coming together, but I'm curious, what did you do for the subsidence?

Built up the slab with 3 1/2" of reinforced concrete (which is only a band aid for a much larger geologic/geo-political problem, and one that will not last) per engineer specs; diverted the runoff from a new neighbor's property to the North (which was the biggest culprit) to a french drain; built up and sloped drainage away from the buildings foundation; incorporated a "coffer damn" of sorts into the new slab on the West, North and East ... the South exposure drains fine down a driveway to the street; added gutters to divert rainwater away for building into french drain.
These are all just band-aids, but the cumulative effect has been to at least stop water during extended downpours, where before just a medium heavy rain of any duration would cause water encroachment on the NW corner.
All bet's are off for the next hurricane, but you can't stop a determined mother nature.

Ahh.. a low assembly walkaround bench. A must have.
( Under which I keep my nailers, hoses, nails, and I put 4 duplex receptacles, one on each side. The one in my old shop had 135 PSI connectors on each side as well.) I know, tripping over cords and hoses *is* a lot of fun but.....<G>

Looking good Karl.
Reminds me of a shop project I did where all the hardware came from garage sales. I will never get prices like that again. If I recall correctly, something like 25 drawer pulls for $3. Always good to save a buck or two. Particularly in a shop.

Besides the "reclamation/recycle" aspect of this project, I decided to use my Festool stuff for everything ... "no MSG, or table saw was used in this product".
Even the PC557 (butt jointed with biscuits, glued and screwed the drawer cabs, something I would never do to a client) hooked up to the CT22 without any adapters and the absence of sawdust is remarkable. I put the Makita LS1013 on a Ridgid miter saw stand and used it outside only ... the neighbors got that bit of sawdust. <EG>
That will, of course, change when the rest of my big iron shows up, but it has gotten me to thinking about "in the shop" dust control for the first time (it is ALWAYS a number one priority on a job site, however).

The only equipment he needs is a frig, to hold the beer, and a chair, to sit and admire his handiwork.
Recycling lumber: That's what I did for remodeling much of my latest/ newest shop.... still in progress.
Good job, Karl. When you're done, you can come help me with mine.
