Garage Update

The great garage renovation continues. I’ve posted a few more pictures on Flickr. As you can see, the workbench is starting to go up. I’m making it 12 feet long so I bought a piece of 3/4″ plywood and had it cut in half, giving me a couple eight foot planks, each two feet deep. I’ve got one of them up and need to cut the other in half so I can slip it into place. There’s a twelve foot 2×4 running along the wall, providing lots of stability. I’ll have a total of 4 legs along the front with corresponding supports under the bench and struts about halfway down, adding a little more stability. You can also see the paint that I’m using for the whole wall. I know there’s a big patch that’s still just primer. That’s going to be covered up, though, so I didn’t want to waste paint. Yes, I know I primered it, but I wanted a protective coating over the whole wall. I should be able to finish the bench tomorrow and then I’ll add a bit of color to it. All in all, it’s coming along nicely.
