  • My Hubby's dream. Gaming and space for his tools...awesome! But I already told you that on IG!

  • Awesome project! I'd love to redo my garage with all these ideas.

  • What is the wall paint color?

  • What is the wall color you used

  • My garage is finished so I do not have the height needed to do this. I would need to make it no higher than 7 foot to allow for the barn door hardware, would I just change the dimensions from 8 foot to 7? Or 84 X 24 x 84? Thanks
    By steve57, on March 10, 2018
    • Sorry for the late reply. I would buy the barn door hardware first then mock it up to see the clearence you want. You may need to leave some room to get the door on and off the track. Good luck!

  • This is such a cool and versatile design. I especially like the hidden storage and chalkboard.

  • How much weight does this table hold?
    By renewedhaven, on January 17, 2018
    • We haven't done weight testing on it to give you an exact answer, but it is a very sturdy table!

  • Great idea and very useful!

  • There looks like there’s an error in the cuts. One of the 2x4x8 says cut 2 pieces 40”, but when constructing the frames it later tells you to cut 48”. There are no cuts on the diagram for 48”.

  • I'm starting to put together a little workshop for myself and figured this would be a great first project.
    Instead of a chalkboard, I'm planning on using magnetic primer and dry erase board paint.   Will be my first time using those products.

    I'm curious, for the rest of the work bench, what type of finish would anyone suggest, or just leave it raw wood?

  • I like the whole setup that you have. Just moved into our house and have a 20x20 garage and was wondering how I was going to set it up. Now I know. Thanks.

  • Could someone post the dimensions of the in/out feed cart and the miter saw cart? Are they both 48" wide?
    By potomacbuilder, on May 1, 2018
    • Hi @potomacbuilder! The in-feed-out-feed cart dimensions are 36 x 24 x 40. The miter saw cart dimensions are 36 x 24 x 48. Hope this is helpful! 
      By RYOBI NATION, on May 1, 2018
    • thanks. In the video though the in/out cart is definitely wider than the miter saw cart. Optical illusion??
      By potomacbuilder, on May 2, 2018
    • I noticed that too. Maybe the miter saw cart is 40" wide and the others are 48". Thinking more about it, all the carts could be anything up to 48" in width. Might as well make them 48" wide and have less waste.

      I hope to make the carts in the next few weeks! It'll help organize the war zone that is my garage.

  • Hi, I started building this today.  I assembled the outer frame and it is not overly sturdy.  I did it with 16 1-1/4" course thread pocket hole screws in the location from the plans.  Before I invest too much more time and money I was hoping to find out if this is expected?  Will adding the interior pieces and the 1/4" plywood to the back truly make this fully stable?  I planned on building the Miter saw cart next, but I would not put a miter saw on this one as it is now.

    Thanks
    By toolsinga, on July 1, 2018
    • Hi! We did not have issues at all with it being sturdy. Did you go ahead and add the other interior pieces? That should make it more sturdy. 
      By RYOBI NATION, on July 17, 2018

  • Do I need to build the miter saw cart first in order to get the correct height for the in and out carts? I’m planning on purchasing the Ryobi 12” sliding miter saw to put on the cart.

    • No, you do not. Click "view project PDF" and it will give step by step instructions for the in-feed out-feed cart.

  • How much did this cost??
    By Tracy relyea, on January 19, 2018

  • I love your work. I was wondering, can you elaborate on how to attach the middle shelf? For instance what do you mean by toenail?

  • Seem's your top piece would be 17, 3/4 to allow for overhang, unless you put strips along top for overhang. Can you clarify please? Thanks!

  • Gorgeous 😍😍

  • Looks great!  My daughter is moving into an apartment at college, and as soon as I show her this, I know that it will be something that we will be working on this summer.  Thanks!
