Can I put in a temporary wall in the garage?

My garage has much more space than I need, so I was thinking of using part of it as a woodworking space. I don’t want to do any construction work, but is there a way to put up a temporary wall in the garage?

Yes, there is! You can build a temporary wall in the garage or buy some easy-to-install room dividers.
There are some DIY temporary wall plans you can find online built from 2 x 4s and plywood which are then attached to casters so they can be easily moved around. Since you are building a woodworking space, this might be right up your alley!
If you just want to throw something up cheap and fast, you can buy 6’ room partitions from places like Amazon that come three to a package and are priced starting below $100.
We want to mention that if you are building up your collection of woodworking power tools, you need to increase the amount of personal property coverage on your homeowners policy. In the event of a fire or theft, you want your items to have adequate coverage.
