Default My new shop

I have got the keys to the new workshop and have started work on it. I am going to paint the walls first and then some sealing and insulation along with updating the electrics. Over the past couple of days I have been fitting a wicker door, a new fire door in the spray shop and ripping out some Heath Robinson benches.
This is a shot from the doors:

This one is a shot towards the doors from the far side of the shop:

This is the bench that is coming out:

Here is a shot of the spray room from one end:

And this one from the other end of the spray room:

Needs a bit of work doing but the Landlord will reimberse me for the electrics.

Looks like there is some rewarding work to be done, keep us informed as you progress.

I myself am working out a my garage.. about 21' x 18' on the inside.. I plan on removing the cheap old garage door, and adding a double man door that someone no longer needs.. with some glass.. :P my next big task is how to heat it.. maybe a 240 volt 4800 watt heater.. anybody familiar with those? my garage is not yet completely insulated nor is waterproof(floor/grading issues)... but it is too cold to be out there during the winter..

Just an update. Over the last few days we have been installing new electrics in the shop. Landlord is going to reimburse for this. I have no idea how the previous owner hadn't killed himself with them, but that's another story. Anyway after sorting out some problems with a couple of the breakers for the big machines it is now up and running. I am now in the process of sorting out positioning of the various equipment I have into some kind of order. Looks like I will need a couple of trips to the local tip for all the rubbish I have accumulated too. :roll:

Well I am halfway there now. I got all the RAS mounted on the bench.
Along with the large machines in place and some racking up for my odds and ends.

I have now got somewhere to hang my clamps too

I have done a little bit of work in the spray shop but it needs a lot more work yet.

I cut down one of the benches that was left and put it on castors so it will double as an infeed table for the table saw. I am still unsure where to put an office but am working on that one.

It looks like it has a lot of potential. What kind of work do you do in the shop?
