Default Well...isn't this slick...

Ran across this video while searching for something totally unrelated...


It's a bit long but I think worth it...good for both small and larger shops...

Enjoy...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Pretty neat idea . I think Barb needs a few in her new shop to utilize her space the most efficiently

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .

Ok , I never insulate

Just don't put anything heavy on it or it will clunk you on the head. Overhead storage for me is only for light weight stuff.

well thought out but sure looked to be high dollar...
I think weight would be an issue..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Follow through on the narrative, a set of gas springs are to be added to help handle the weight - maybe a later video?

Stick, not particularly high dollar. Pine ply is the one type of ply we manufacture locally in South Africa, and even our Shutter-ply would work (I built one of those doors-within doors wall cabinets, loaded with a couple of hundred pounds of tools out of shutter-ply). Not Baltic Birch, you understand, but that is virtually unobtainable here.
The solid pine (non-indigenous to SA) is at the heart of the roofing industry (our walls are masonry), and not much of it is suitable for furniture - grows too quickly, planks twist like hell. If you look at the planks he used, you will notice the width between the growth rings. Those trees would have been harvested at about 20 years. I understand that in the Northern Hemisphere, similar-size tees would take double that time to grow, but the growth rings are much tighter.

Strange coincidence but I also watched that yesterday,
But nobody has noticed the really big problem with this.....

In order to be able to lower the panels, you have to keep the walls bare. So why not just put shelves on the walls and save the time and money this costs to build?

True, Bob, but in a one-car garage shop, like mine, I would love to have some bare wall. My workbench is smaller than his, and yet I am constantly bumping into and getting snared on stuff. The bare wall would soon be filled with jigs and templates that lie flat.

But then you could not have the roof system anyway, because unless you had it coming down in the middle of the room (meaning you could not have a bench or machines), the system takes up more space than the wall shelves, and even with gas struts you could never put the same weight on those hoists as you could on a set of wall shelves.
The whole thing is self defeating.
I am even worse off than you, I have a one car garage but roller shutters at each end and I have to have access through the workspace.
Both long walls are filled with shelves.

Closed cabinets and doors over shelving would be my storage method of choice. Keeping sawdust out is a high priority for me, and any open shelving or storage will soon be layered with fine sawdust. It's insidious!
