As mentioned I cleared down and removed the standing bench from the garage and I replaced it with benches and shelves that match the other side. It's made a vast improvement already, the space feels much more open and it can still house the same amount of stuff just in different locations. I took the opportunity to move more things to the shed and I have boxes of stuff that need sorting out but I'm getting there.
In other news I have acquired so new toys to go in the garage. A modela MDX-15 mini milling machine and a Roland CX-12 Vinyl Cutter. They seem to be functional but I need to figure out drivers and software for them before I can get them working properly. Looks like I'll be branching into more non laser thingies in the future.
