Nice shop Taumac! Really like the vise collection.

I'm not sure if you meant you weren't sure how to include pics, or just didn't because there were so many, but here's a tip I got early on thats worked for me:

On each of the pictures in your album, there are two links below the pic when you click on it. The second one is called ""BB Code". If you'll highlight everything in that line and copy it, then paste that into a post, your pics will show up. That's how I do it anyway...I'm sure there are other ways.

Either way...nice looking shop....very well organized!

Nice shop, I like the organization.

Question: what for brackets did you use for the floating bench? Does it feel solid or is there flex if you'd put something heavy or do heavy pounding on it?

If that only took you an hour, I can only imagine how organized it would be if you put some time into it!

Can you come do mine?

The bracket are just those 12 x 12 shelf brackets you get from Home depot or any hardware store. Theres 6 of them and if remember right there rated at 100 ilbs plus theres a 2 x 4 mounted to top with 4 lags into wall so its doesnt flex. I usually use gray table ( which welding top is clapped to) or top of the press for heavy pounding not that bench probably couldnt do it. I could easly mount 2 legs but like the floating like it is. The buckets I got from a friend and use them to storage everything from rope/ caster wheels/ spray paint/ old bottle jacks in the orange ones. The white ones hold my electric pressure washer hoses, car wash towels, car brushes stuff like that. I do like vises ( LOL ) plus it doesnt hurt when I got them all for "FREE" over the years.

I should name garage 5 lbs in1 lb bag LOL. I live in west coast of Fl and this whole garage was layout was that I would be able to put 2 cars into my garage in case of hurricane. Its all about space and Ive basically used all of it. Next projects is 2 tables, 1 welding table to hold all welding stuff ( mig and O/A setup ) those 2 Cratsman vises and and folding welding top and it will fit under bench. 2 nd one is a combo drill press/ bandsaw where the drill press is with a sliding shelf on bottom that bandsaw can slide out and use. The roll bottom will turn into rolling cart to use it shop and service cart will be disasibled and put it attic with other one for possilbe futher use down road. The attic I aslo use for storage as it has my 3 ladders (4, 6, and folding ladder) big shop vac and my 2 B & D workmates.

Very nice garage. Some garages on this site are just not affordable by the regular working stiff.

I would say that your garage is one of the nicer ones on here!

Thumbs up Re: My "Shop"

A '5#ShopInA1#Bag' is an appropriate title for your place. You did one hell of a good job organizing your stuff AND you still have room for two cars; outstanding! For the 'hat trick', about showing a pic from the driveway showing both cars tucked safely inside. Its one thing to have a real working shop, but to keep it organized enough to store two cars (and a washer & dryer - lol) is something we don't often see here at GJ!

Thanks steammill, That means alot. My garage has been a 5yr work in progress. Alot of what you see with except for maybe compressor and my 4 high tool box has been found, given, or on pernament loan. The layout has changed 10 times at least alway fine tuning it. One year my New Years resolution to wife was that the garage would not go through a "MAJOR" reno for a year. Im VERY proud of my shop and what I made it into on a shoe string budget and I glad that I can share it with all of you to enjoy.
