Shop update #315 (11-15-23)
I’ve always done most of my woodworking out on the side of my house. I did this because half of my garage was filled up with my 1998 Toyota Tacoma show truck. The truck has now been sold and I am building out the garage to be a full wood shop.
The first step was to replace the 10 year old lights above my side work bench with some LED’s.
I have 2 banks of LED lights above my primary workbench area.
I have now added 6 more banks for a total of 8. It is gloriously bright in the shop now.
I cut down the 5 – 2×4’s that I bought last week into 10 – 2×2’s to use for some new shelves along the ceiling of the shop.
I mounted 1 – 2×2 to the wall above the garage door but was having a really hard time finding the joists in the ceiling with my stud sensor.
I cut a hole in the ceiling to try and figure out the problem and it turns out that my ceiling has 2 layers of drywall that ends up being 1 3/8″ thick.
I don’t think that the 3″ screws that I bought for the project are going to end up being used.
