I removed the half wall.

After building the half wall and fitting in my work table, I realized the wall was in my way! I took it out, and built up the beam above so I could also take out the center support post in the middle of my studio, which was in my way also.

I like this so much better, and it only took some thinking to figure our how to arrange my shelves so there is no loss of shelf space.
