You need to put the insulation in the walls and ceiling before even thinking about what to cover them with.

Using external electrical conduit is a really nice idea for a shop. Wish I'd done that.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

It’s real tempting. I think I’ll just have a lot of outlets installed , as I pretty much know where things will be . I’ll have a few extra 240V added though .
Also need a 6 gauge feed for a 2 stage compressor

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Chuck, I second that motion, My shop is also 7/16th OSB and when I bought this house the whole garage was painted a dark brown !!! WOW what a mess, I used a good quality latex paint and primer combined and gave it 3 coats and it is nice and clean now and bright. My lights are 8ft fluorescent and also joist mounted as well as my General air filter.

Brian I don't understand your comment about the OSB, I sell into all the OSB mills and have used the product for years and never noticed a smell. I used to build storage sheds every summer about 30 or so for many years and always used OSB.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

I can't say I've ever noticed a smell either Dan. Once painted white I barely notice that that the walls are covered with OSB. I put vapor barrier on the ceiling first and I covered the cracks between joists with 1/4 to 3/8 thick strips. One of these days I'll get around to putting on the ones that run with the joists but that part can't leak air so I haven't considered doing that enough of a priority yet.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

My electrician recommended that. I’m just not sure about it ,as I’m not liking the idea of having a conduit in the way around my garages perimeter. Especially when I need to secure my clamp racks to the wall and there’s this conduit interfering

However I do like your idea of having four outlets in each box

Ok ,I never insulate

Couple of comments, unless of course you have already done this:

1) Whatever you use, make sure it's painted white, so you have maximum light reflection; have never been in a shop with dark walls that didn't seem needlessly dim, especially near the walls. Our old eyes also function better in high contrast situations.

2) Drywall is a fire barrier, even if it's not fire rated. Anything wooden is going to be kindling.

3) For mounting cabinets etc, framing up the wall with appropriate 2x4's is easy peasy once you have designed the setup.

4) Totally true about the insulation and vapor barrier being done before the final wall cover material needs to be worried about.

5) Drywall anchors (look like a baby corkscrew) that shoot in with a #2 Phillips bit and look like a big e z threaded insert work awesome and are a snap to put up, no drilling needed.

6) Drywall will quiet the room and transfer less noise to the outside / into the house.

Post up some pics of your kingdom mon ami.

Happy Canada Day to you tomorrow.

When they were building a condo back home, we were hauling in 3/4” drywall for the walls between apartments. It is probably code for fire, but was told it kept the noise down

It would be expensive,but if my garage was drywalled first , then had a layer of 3/4” plywood on top of the drywall just on the side walls from 2’ from above the floor to the ceiling height , it would be the best of both worlds .
