When we bought this property, there was an existing shop building which made it a good fit for our objectives. The original building with the gambrel roof measured 16’ across and 24’ deep. After a lot of consideration, we decided to add 20’ to the side of the existing structure, making the shop portion of the building 36’ wide by 24’ deep.
The loft in the old section of the structure measures 16’ by 24’ with a 7’ ceiling. We added shelves along each side wall and store household items as well as smaller cuts of wood up there.
A main objective was to have my tablesaw centrally-located with left and right support tables as well as outfeed support. I can place a full 4’ by 8’ sheet to the operator’s left of the saw, then maneuver it to make the cut. There is ample outfeed distance to fully support the material after a cut. Another factor in building the tablesaw support tables in this manner is to keep all associated dust collection duct from having to run across the floor. The table to the left of the operator’s position of the tablesaw can also hold my Incra LS fence system. I set six threaded inserts into the table for easy installation and removal of the fence base.
Among the first things I installed when I started outfitting my shop is an Oneida 3hp Super Dust Gorilla. In time, I ran galvanized steel duct to most of my machines.
