DIY Freestanding Wall – workshop improvement project

DIY Freestanding Wall – workshop improvement project

One day I would like to have my own shop. For now i will need to continue working out of the garage. This project will help transform a section of the garage into a small shop without having to structurally change the garage with a free standing wall attached to a weighted workbench. The project costs where under $150. The impact it had on the shop was huge.
I frame a wall with 2 x 3 studs where the studs are 24 inch on center. I end up with a wall that is 14 ft long and 7 ft 4 inches high. The wall is capable of standing with out legs because it is screwed to the workbench with 6 lag screws. The garage door is fully functional without any modifications.

Thanks for the video.. The wall wont fall if it's pushed? I know it's attached to the bench but is that sturdy enough?

Thanabalasingam Krishnan Moogathy says:

nice but I would really add some sort of support on the other side of the wall too…

Private Lender says:

What are the dimensions of the work bench you have supporting the wall?

Looks great! I love your attention to detail, I'm sure it makes projects take longer but then the quality is that much better.
