    Re: Help me organize my garage

    i need a little organizing in my shed and garage...i'm in decent shape but i have a few things I think I would like to do to make a little more floor space in both locations...keep the photos and ideas coming!

    1 easy thing i want to do is get a short garbage can with a cover for my empty beer cans/bottles so i can keep them outside instead of in the garage in a fish tote...then i can spin my air compressor so it won't stick out so far

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    that shelf didn't take long to fill, glad I left 2ft space above, the big box has my original gas tank, damage,from a ladder falling on it 3 days after I bought it plan on expanding to a larger 8+ gal tank, my 1550 sidecases hang out a bit, a Stanley Fat max box I use for a top case, and optima battery & box of wiring for my auxiliary charging system project 15 sq ft of freed up floor space, every bit counts

    my next project before I build the workbench on the back wall, is cleaning up the rats next of network cabling, a project I am dreading with all the furniture moved and consolidated, every cable is probably twice as long as it needs to be

    yes, PT, the 12' 4x6 was $40 or so, but the 6x6 x8' rough timbers were only $18, at HD in Rochester, they are PT, but not ground contact, no biggie, I/m usin em indoors $207 for my list in the sketch, I'm gonna be able to do my gussets, and cross joist with scraps I have, might hafta but one though. I have a stainless steel sink for the parts washer sink, I'll get a small pump, and I know what I am getting for a vice, a Capri 7"

    I saw that "light duty" stuff. I've been drawing up a tree-house for the kids and the cost of real PT is just stunning right now. The plans got scaled back substantially when I looked into what I could get 6x6 posts for.

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    it's barely treated, is what they mean by "light duty", so it's great for inside garage stuff, not planed, it has a rough cut surface, not good for kids getting splinters

    before I get done, I will add a hardwood wainscot rail at the top edge & over the edge of the underlayment and hardwood top

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    Anne helped me unload the truck, a lot of work for 2 old farts, trying to decide if I wanna fumble thru this with my 7" saw, cut halfway thru, then flip it over, or rent a post & beam saw, which would require getting it all done at once, rather than piecemeal.

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do about shelving: DIY, amazon, or dish out for something really nice/professional.

    On the professional front, I've found a system called "Monkey Bars" that I am really impressed with. Holds 1000 lbs every 4 feet and once you install the main shelves, you can add modular pieces like shelving, hooks, bike racks, etc that hang off the main supports. Only problem is you have to buy from a retailer and they have to install it. But it has a lifetime warranty and truly looks professional. The good news is they come out for free and a make a 3D rendering of what you suggest...pretty easy stuff but still kinda fun:

    I also impulsively bought this rolling cabinet at Sam's Club. It holds 600lbs total and locks, so I'm tempted to just get a few more of these, put anything bulky on the top of them and call it a day.

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    We bought two of the Sandusky brand shelves from HD over the winter. Came fully assembled. Great deal for 225$ on sale. I store tools and diy supplies in one and the other is dry stuff like tp, paper towels etc. They are cheaper and larger than the husky brand.

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I have a small stainless steel sink, that I was going to use for a parts washer, but in looking for a pump, I have decided to get this, just use the tub, recess it into my bench, not use the legs. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...y?cm_vc=-10005

    edit, maybe not, reading 1 start reviews, the pump is only compatible with water based cleaners

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I started construction today, this will take me a while, my old Skil is a pretty cheap one, I have tried cutting post with it before and never a clean cut, so I am doing this with a hand saw, first one done, still a lot of sticky inside the wood, gonna have to squirt the saw with WD40 while cutting to make it go faster Help me organize my garage-img_2596-jpg

    and after 6 of em, I'm ready to call it quits for today, still have to notch the legs for the cross timbers, and of course, the cross timbers will need to be notched after they are cut to length

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I've got my cardio for today, yesterday, I cut the 6 legs, notching one leg is more work, at least it feels like it, I wasn't able to find a beam saw to rent, so I am doing it all with a hand saw

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    OK< Serious question for the wisdom of NESRians, I have notched all my corner posts, and now time to cut my cross beams

    here's the question, should I make the bench 30"deep, or 32" deep. ?

    is 2" bench space any advantage. It does make the electrical outlets a stretch

    I have the beam 32" from the wall, the finished bench surface will be 2" higher (38") I reached over, and could reach it without knocking my house of cards down

    unrelated, but maybe related: Why don't you guys run mini splits in your mancaves/garages/sheds/work shops? I'm having a condenser and 3 air handlers installed in one of my 660sq ft rentals in SoCal. Ditching the window A/C, the wall mounted gas heater (very room specific heat) and tenant has a couple space heaters that load their electricity bill into the $120/month range. Mini splits should be more energy efficient, offer room-by-room temp control, and seem a lot easier to install then ducting/central air w' much less energy loss. You get A/C and heat out of each air handler. I wish I had this in my parent's garage when I was wrenching that RM

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    after walking past my beam several times while cutting other pieces, and reaching for the outlet for the hell of it, I have decided to go with 30" as I had originally planned, it will be easier to firmly plug in electric cords

    I am going with 5/4 sugar maple for the surface

    I am done for day, plenty of exercise pumping that hand saw, one more beam to cut and notch, I will screw it together, then start on diagonal braces for the posts

    I don't really need AC, back before I retired maybe, 4 guys at computer workstations running multiple monitors, printers that have their own server, we generated a lot of heat, but now, the barn is built 3 sides into the ground, shaded, and well insulated, sometimes I turn a fan on, to bring cooler air off the back wall
