My "Garage M'hal" Workspace

About: "Black socks and Birkenstocks do not maketh the geek. I would argue that the essence of geekitude comes from within. To the true geek, it's not enough that things work. He or she must know how things work. A...

Here is my entry for the "Share your space" contest. This is my private garage (this is NOT a commercial building nor used for commercial purposes.) It is, however, always open for my friends to come and do whatever work they need to perform. It can do just about any wood /metal/electronic/mechanical/hybrid project out there. If you live near me, and you want to use it, drop me a note!

I have built this garage from scratch and it has taken 10 years so far. If you are planning a similar building, please ask me before you do. I have learned a lot from this building: things to do and things to avoid. I'll be happy to share with you!

I'm sorry the video quality isn't better; my camera is acting up and I don't have time to get it fixed before the contest deadline.
Some things not covered in the video are, the two eye wash stations in the garage. (See if you can find them!) Also, I didn't show the security system with video cameras for obvious reasons.

Inside the garage you will see other Instructables that I have posted (or will post soon) so enjoy.

My sure you volume is at a good level to 'hear' the tour as well.

I welcome all comments, suggestions, ideas, or questions. Please leave me feedback, but more importantly, if you like my space, vote for me on the contest!

    Sorry about that. I can't delete it because it is part of a contest, so I reloaded the video.

    Yes, the site keeps deleting the embedded code for the video when I publish it.

    I'm waiting to hear back from the support team about this.

    Yes they fixed it and submitted a ticket to their people.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Please vote (5 star would be nice) since I've missed most of the contest! 8>)
