I moved from a 20×20 garage in the city to a 30×40 pole barn. This is a “work in progress,” as SO many things take precedent over what I would rather be doing.
These pics were taken for insurance purposes, so the shop is a mess. What you can’t see are my storage area above the office / bathroom and the lawn-mower stall. I also have a 10×10 finishing room with a vent (that is also in process of being completed).
To give you a sense of proportion, the green painted cabinets were the width of my working area in my previous garage. My wood is stored behind the panel saw and above the office. I have 11’- 6” ceilings.
Some of my tool are:
10” Delta Uni-saw w/52” Uni-saw fence
10” Delta Radial-arm saw
10” Delta compound-miter saw
17” Jet Drill press
Jet Mini-lathe w/bed extension
14” Jet band saw
6” Jet Jointer
Milwaukee panel saw
Woodpecker router table w/3-hp Porter-Cable router
JDS 3-speed air filter
Ingersoll-Rand 60 gal. Air Compressor
Hot Dawg 75,000 BTU heater
Clear Vue CV1800 Cyclone dust collector
I have my shop wired 110 / 220v single phase. I converted almost all of the machines to run 220v. I also piped my air using copper. I have 12 – 105 watt CFL full spectrum bulbs to light the shop. I find it great to work in; I don’t think there is a single inch of space not lighted. Finally installed a heater and dust collector – looking forward to warm times in the winter and being able to cut wood without dust falling all over the place!
-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
