    Wagoncrazy, I'm curious about the deeper cabinet combination with an empty spot. Is it intended as a spot where you can sit on a chair and work? Or does something go in the empty spot?

    I was at a sheet metal shop today (to check on bending up pieces for wiring harness covers for the Nomad), and I asked if they sold and bent stainless steel workbench covers. I asked for the price of a 3'x8' sheet of 16 gauge stainless with the front bent to contour for a 'cabinet top like Pauls'... Price provided was $395... that is probably why I use plywood covered by OSB or pressboard on my benchtops!

    Paul: I may have missed it, or forgotten, if you have epoxied (or otherwise sealed) the concrete floor in your garage? and if not, do you plan to? I'd recommend doing that asap before you begin getting oil and stains in the concrete...

    Answers for Bama...

    The center of the workbench layout is for a stool and place to put a laptop or monitor on the bench. So yes...a place to sit and watch youtube videos on how to fix stuff I've screwed up.

    Epoxy floors- No. Didn't do it. $5000 to do the size of my garage and I'm just not that much in love with the floors to need to do that right now. So for now, I'll go with some spill mats under the cars to keep the drips off the concrete and just enjoy the floors as is.

    And for the rest of you guys who've been following my progress:

    2 post lift- This was always the plan. Just needed to design and build a garage set up for it. Found a used BendPak 10,000# Assymetrical lift locally, 5 years old, barely used and clean, and just had it installed last weekend. $3050 all in, including installation. Smokin' deal I couldn't pass up. Pretty jazzed to be using a lift to work under them.

    Congrats on the lift, Paul... looks like a very nice one!

    Still think you should 'seal' the floors (my recommendation would be epoxy - self applied), for a small fraction of the cost someone quoted you. But Your new garage/shop looks great and will be a blessing to you in your car work..

    You should be able to buy sealer for concrete for a fraction of what you were quoted and do it yourself.

    Any of us would be proud to have your garage Paul.. It's certainly 'braggable'.. :

    PS. I've found the 'best way' here to insert images is to use the 'insert image' function above, which allows you to select the image you want to post (from your computer), and then 'upload it' and it will be inserted where you chose the function...

    Garage is looking great, Paul. You’ve been very busy and the results show. BTW, I noticed a picture of a 59 or 60 corvette on your bench top in an earlier post, next project?
