How to Heat a Garage Workshop
Richard installed the High Intensity Radiant Workshop Heater, manufactured by Mr. Heater [http://www.mrheater.com/].
The other materials Richard used to install the heater, including the gas piping, the flexible gas line, and the plywood to hold the bracket for the heater, can all be found at home centers.

Build It | Tool Storage Shelf
Tom built the tool storage cabinet out of leftover materials from previous Build It projects, including ¾-inch oak plywood, 1×12-inch select pine, and ¼-inch birch plywood. These can all be found at home centers and lumber yards if you don’t have enough material in your scrap pile.
To cut the boards to the correct dimensions, Tom used a TS 55 circular saw from Festool (www.festoolusa.com). He then secured everything together using GRK #9 2-inch multi-purpose screws from GRK Fasteners [https://thd.co/39bSNXz] and some wood glue from Gorilla Glue [https://thd.co/3lr4mA7]
The kit that Tom and Kevin referenced and used as inspiration for their tool storage organization was the M18 18V Cordless Combo Tool Kit by Milwaukee Tool [https://thd.co/39710we].
