I mentioned in another thread that I'm just setting up a new shop. It is 28'x20' with 10' ceiling. I learned from my last shop in Oregon that you need lots of light, lots of 120v and 240v outlets, and plenty of storage. Well the the lights and wiring are in, the walls and floor are painted but now it's time for storage.
I read Tom Clark's post about building inexpensive cabinets and it got the "make sawdust" juices flowing. I have is this.... I've got a 80"x32"x1 3/4" solid core door and would like to use it for the top of a storage cabinet. Question, should I build to the size of the door at least the length or make it narrow say 25-25"? I plan on putting it next to the wall but never had a bench more than 24". I do have on 96"x24"x37" work bench it is tall so I don't have to bend over too much. This bench would be to set some of my bench top tools on. Is the 32" just so much unusable space? Also would you cut down the length into smaller cabinets.
Looking for input so that I don't have to make it twice I'm thinking of it being about 28-29" tall.
PS. found out that if you paint a floor gray epoxy with those sprinkles, lot of luck finding any small items dropped on it!
PSS. I'll post photos of the shop when I figure out how to attach on this forum.
