Garage workshop - Garage workshops have a unique need of being multipurpose serving as both workshop and parking the family car(s). All of the tools need to be mobile and be quickly and easily moved out of the way. The lighting needs to be flexible and be out of the way of the garage door. For a standard two car garage that measures approximately 22 x 24 feet, two to four two tube fluorescent fixtures will provide ample lighting of the work space.
The picture above shows the bandsaw I built using the things mentioned. It took me a couple months, since I only worked on it in the evenings and on weekends, but I figure I spent around $100 to make me a functioning bandsaw that cuts up to 12 inch logs. A bandsaw like this would have cost me probably $1200 or more to buy commercially. I later invested in a new motor so I could run it on straight 110 single phase instead of 220 volts single phase. That cost me about $200. I also wrote and kept the plans to the saw so that I could either build another one or share the plans with others.
So whether you decide to build a bandsaw or something else with the things you have collecting dust in your shop, dont throw them away when spring cleaning time comes, you may just need them later when you think of something that you want or need, but dont want to pay the price commercially. A couple of other things I made with things just laying around in my shop was a utility trailer and a small overhead hoist, which enabled me to lift heavy things such as my rototiller and sprayer up to the top level of my shop.
