During my spare time in between weekends, I got really hooked on watching woodworking videos on YouTube. One set of videos in particular inspired me to build a workbench/cabinet in my garage. It was this old video from The New Yankee Workshop series: Norm Shows You How to Build a Garage Workshop Part 1 and Part 2. In watching this video, it gave me a lot of good ideas for how I wanted to build my own cabinets and workbench. So, for several weeks prior to moving on to building some cabinets and finishing the garage, I obsessively came up with plans for an ideal layout. I shared the plans with a lot of my friends and family to get feedback.
I included these plans below. Admittedly, some of these were drawn while I was in the midst of building.
