I have a detached single car garage that acts as my workshop while sharing space with some landscape equipment and misc. storage. I had been struggling with determining how to get a good layout and then I stumbled across Layout Kit for Small Shops (free PDF file). The shop in this article was about the same dimension as my shop and I can be more spacious than that one (in other words I own less tools that takeup floor space).

The heart of my workshop is my DeWalt 746X hybrid table saw on a mobile base. Across from that sits my Craftsman 12 inch Miter Saw on a portable stand.

To the back are my workbench and assembly table. I intend to build some lumber storage along that back wall right above the door height and to the right of this photo once I get my grilling and automotive repair equipment into a new addition I’m adding onto the back of this garage.

What is most lacking is a bench vise, but I have managed so far so until I run across a task I cannot accomplish without it I’d rather spend the money on lumber for my next project or saving toward getting a nice router combo kit.

Pretty nice. Reminds me of my garage shop except I had a washer and dryer in there.

Scott, that miter saw looks very familiar. Nice little shop you have over there. How well does that heater work for that space? R/ Brian
