I like this setup. Thanks for sharing. I have a shed down in the woods. Stays shaded. No windows, use to put garden tractor and some not often used tools in. Not much ventilation. If i used wood pegs/pegboard would rot due to humidity here in Al. Going to look into these.

Default Super Ideas

Sure are some super ideas. I like the idea of shelves and using chests etc. My problem is that with shelves, and my having my woodshop on 1/2 of the garage everything seems to get a nice coating of sawdust. I hope someday to have some shelves for small power tools and then put doors or something in front to keep them from getting coated. One thing I did find at an auction a few years ago was this steel cabinet. Only cost $40 and sure is nice for storing chemicals, oil, other cans/jars. Not real pretty, but painting it on the "to do list". Bet there's a lot of that stuff out there if u just know where to look. Government/state auctions ?

Rjbman, you are killing me. I am having pangs of storage envy. I love the chemicals locker set up.

Default Perfect Area

Hedgerowe ,
you are in a perfect area to get super cheap values from Government auctions in D.C. and Va. When in Md. I used to go to them all the time.
Most are available on line and you can see what it is tht they have up for auction. Yepper, sometimes you have to get more than one in a "lot" but
bet neigbors and friends need storage too . Check with the other bases in the area. Government, State, County and Municipal auctions can be a wonderful source of values.

Rjbman, what a good idea. I've never worked for the Federal Govt. directly (govt. contractors and NFPs only) and so never thought of that. I should look into it. Any advice would be most appreciated.

Re: sawdust. You could hook up a vacuum system and discharge it into your compost pile.

Another really good idea. Why can't I think of this stuff?

If you work wood you start thinking of a vacuum system pretty soon. Sawdust gets in your lungs and down your underwear.

Actually, working on an old house there is a certain amount of lead that works its way into at least some of the sawdust. Probably best NOT to include my sawdust in the compost bin.
