This is my new garage workshop that I just moved into the 1st of the year. It’s a big upgrade from my last shop which was 16×18. This is a 2 1/2 car garage with 10 ft ceilings 24’x 24′ with a 6 x 10 nook in the back.

About 3 months ago I found a pickup load of reclaimed western cedar on craigslist that was used in a hotel lobby. They were all 7-12″ wide 1″ thick and 8’long. I used those to panel the walls of the garage since I absolutely hate drywall in the garage. I wound up with only 2 boards leftover, talk about cutting it close. The floors are covered with 4 x 6 livestock mats of 3/4″ rubber. Everything is hardwired in 220v which I ran myself along with 3 extra florescent fixtures. As you can probably tell, everything is Grizzly in my shop.

I’m equipped with the following: 10″ 5hp Sliding Table Saw; 12″ spiral cutter head Jointer; 15″ spiral cutter head Planer; 24″ Dual Drum Sander; 19″ Bandsaw; and a 1 1/2 hp Cyclone Dust Collector.

I just finished putting it all together a few months ago and I’m telling you it wore me out! LOL But anyway, I’m extremely happy with my new shop and am looking forward to refurnishing our new home with custom furniture. Thanks for looking!
