    Never can have too much work space....... I built one and put big casters on it so I could wheel it out of my garage into the driveway with all my tools on a lower shelf. I was being stupid and tried to move it with the caster lock on and broke the wheel.....have not replaced it yet.

    I'm gonna attach a 2x12 to the back and the screw it to those 3 flat boards on the wall and run a 20 amp circuit out there. Also need to build the lower shelf. Then i'll be building things.

    Already have a project in mind... :D

    You really would get a chuckle if you ever saw me.

    I need a workshop to build a bench in. Especially considering all of the crap that I do.

    I wish i could claim the deck panels, but they're prefab... I cut cut the and put them in place.

    Mark, That was a window and all that's on the other side is the basement stairs...

    phish, this room is tiny. About 10' by 8'. Not much of a workshop, but i can still make small things... :)

    I'm thinking about getting some kind of small light for under the bench. It's not as dark as it looks, but once its completely dark outside it would be....

    Good idea. That way the boogey man will probably never hide under there.

    What breed of dogs?

    I am going to go out on a limb and guess Australian Shepherd for the closest one in the picture.

    Nope, purebreed Alaskan Malamute (closest, and mine) and a German Shepard/Collie mix.

    They are enough to keep the boogey man at bay, no light needed.
