    Looking good Olstyle :)
    and I really like the idea of the rollabout bench as well.

    I've just started extending my garage.....inspired by you guys.

    I'm guessing since yo guys use a lot of timber for construction that it must be fairly priced?
    I've used 4" steel pipes for my roof support...cheaper than timber

    8' 2x4 were only $2.31 ea. it was the casters and the 4'x8' x 3/4" oak plywood that made it pricey. i used 10 new 2x4s and some scraps from around the garage for angle supports.

    Thought I was done with the garage for now, till Bob stopped over the other day with this in the back of his truck. I've wanted a retracktable air hose reel for some time but the cheap ones are still to much $$$. This industrial ones gonna work great. Can't finish it up till tomorrow, I ran out of lag bolts :(
