Garage Pics Wanted

I am getting ready to move into my 3 car garage and want to get some ideas on how some of you have set up your work benches, peg boards etc etc....

My garage is basically my wood shop. The handiest table I have is a 4'x8' bench that sits in an area that can be accessed from all 4 sides. Not sure if you have the room for one, but it is the handiest work table ever.

Probably not what your looking for, but if you've got the room where the booth should go is what I would keep in mind first.

I don't have a workbench at all and don't miss having one. If I did it would just end up being covered up with tools and other clutter. I use sturdy shelves more than a table.

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

Garage
Don't have any good pix, but I'll see if I can describe...

It's a 25W x 34L 2-car garage. The lower walls are 3/16" hardboard and the upper walls are 3/16" pegboard. SWMBO's side, for her daily driver, has a small corner shelf by the door for things that are used all the time, like small garden tools, etc. The other corner, deep in the back, has a 2 x 8 floor-to-ceiling shelf for the stuff that gets used less frequently, like outdoor chemicals, boat accessories, lawn ornaments, etc. My side has a 18" x 6' workbench built on my old kitchen cabinets with 4 cabinets above and my roll-around to the right, between the bays. I have two 2' x 5' cabinets with worktops that I built on casters so I have storage underneath for tools & supplies, drills, angle grinder, sanders, etc., and a place to work on top (one has my table saw). I also have an old hollow core door and 2 sawhorses that makes a nice pop-up table. In between the doors I have an old metal cabinet that I repainted that holds all my aerosols, oil & filters, etc. That's about it.

If it weren't so full of junk you could see two benches. Each made from a sheet of 3/4" plywood split in half and some 2x4's. These have twins on the other side of the shop where the Mustang is. Pegboard everywhere. First bench is reinforced on one end whre the big vise is. Second bench has drawers mounted underneath for small bits like nuts and bolts. I'm a firm believer in no such thing as too many electrical outlets on too many lights.

I prefer a center island approach to workbenches.
With a red racing stripe off course

They a few along the walls to pile things on

I have worked on my shop for 10+ years. It gets a new update every once in a while. I was able to build a 30' x 50', 10' ceiling (haven't sheet rocked it yet) 8-12 pitch roof (all most 2 story, bunch o' storage), and a bathroom. It is bigger than my first house. 2ea 10'x9' bay doors. Built it myself, except for the block laying, and the concrete work. I really need to finish the ceiling, so I can get some type of heater, but I chose to get my 2-post lift instead, (Foward Lift, 10,000#) Welding table built out of scrap 1.5" square tube with a 3/16" top (3' x 6'), work bench made out of an old pallot and some 3/4" OSB. It is a dream in progress, never thought I'd be able to do something like this, just to have a place to "play".

Great pictures, great shops.

Fullbasement would love details of your booth, that is exactly where I am headed.

All i have are one of those 3x6 foot heavy plastic tables like you can buy at Lowe's. Good to store a motor under and lots of junk on..Not good for real heavy work. Also a couple small work benches. No peg board. -

This was taken before installing the pegboard. The cabinets, top and pegboard were all salvaged (free) from work.
