Doubt it matters much for your shop but you should always have treated wood as your seal that is on the concrete.

Hey John, your website link up in your caption has a space in it and won't link out. Just FYI man. Keep up the great work! 99K and counting!

Great video, fun too watch!
Also, those are non-structural walls and you ended up using drywall, so you could have gone 24 on center and saved a few bucks, not a big deal though. And that short wall was crooked AF. I get the short wall is in ur workspace not ur show space but that opening on top would drive me crazy. For MY sanity you should through up enough framing to put another piece of drywall. 😁😁😁
And if the framing was put on concrete you should have used treated lumber for the bottom rack, concrete holds moisture.

John! Awesome vid man! How close are you to Orbisonia, PA? Noticed some shops that look familiar

Dave Major says:

Great build, We generally push the full sheets to the top of the wall, leaving the pieces at the bottom, this provides for less ladder work while mudding & sanding. the bottom raw edge is covered by the baseboard. Insulation here would make a huge difference in sound levels, if that is a concern.

Ethan Carter says:

Awesome video, John!  Makes me want to go try to build a wall just cause!

Pat Link says:

Now that you have walls … (let there be light)… 🙂

I would have laid a strip of plastic in between the bottom plate and the floor.
Keep that bottom plate dry. Probably cheaper than PT lumber, too. Use both plastic and PT lumber for long term installations.

If you hit 100k can you post a video of you getting in that Mini Cooper?? It looks like a cute lil toy next to the platinum

Fred Thomson says:

Hey John: Great to see sights from Pgh.  Love trying to figure out where you are and I know exactly where you are.  Originally from Forest Hills and have been in you space many times.  Keep up with great videos.

Jeff Marx says:

Amazing that yinz ran into eachother in the parking lot, I hope it works out for him in the old shop. Good luck with your new space, I appreciate your work and am looking forward to more (and bigger?) in your sweet new space, watching from the other end of the state.

Just remember, there ain't no kill like overkill

Ragon Grimes says:

Did I hear you say “crappy drywall screws?” What makes them crappy and what would you recommend? I’ve always used drywall screws for misc shop projects or whatever else I’ve got going on, but I’ve noticed a lot of YouTube woodworkers appear to be using something different. Love your videos.

Joshua Edwards says:

Should have used pressure treated on cement floor
