Garage Progress

So far this year I've been spending a lot of time sifting and getting rid of stuff, the garage is no exception. We had this old workbench that the prior owner left behind and it was piled high with junk; this is how it looked last September. We finally managed to clear it off and sold it on craigslist. 

Our goal was to make room for the table saw to fit in the garage. Once the workbench was gone, we rotated the rolling wood rack and pushed it against that back wall. 

As a reminder, this is how the garage looked in Aug 2019 when I originally posted about wanting to organize it.
This has been a bit of a slow-going project, but I am pleased overall with our progress. There is still some junk we need to deal with in front of the wall with the tubs, but the garage is much better and more useable now, especially since most of the tools in the photo are on mobile bases and can be rolled out of the way. 
I have some ideas for more woodworking projects I'd like to try this summer, but we are feeling strongly the pull to get in our car and go places, so we may not get much done this summer beyond keeping the plants watered.


  1. Wow, that's looking pretty good! Might even jave space for a car inside now!

    I'm in the process of building a small lean-to off the back of our garage so I can move all thr storage junk there, and have room for at least one car inside.

    1. Unfortunately our driveway is really long with no room to turn around at the end so we just park the car under the porte cochiere. I hope your lean-to works. Our garage storage situation was also helped when we finished the shed as we were able to move all the gardening supplies out there.
