Dave
Delta & I believe Rikon used to have shop layout programs on their websites which is a great way to figure out where equipment will fit the best without using paper cut outs. If that software is not available anymore I have some freeware that will do the same thing. Just let me know if you want/ need it. Bruce

Good for you David! If you need a hand with something really awkward, I’m only about 10 minutes away.

Is the bench top and surrounding box for the SCMS for storing it out of the way, or dust collection? Looks intriguing.

The box is a dust collection shroud. I cobbled it together from 1/4” hardboard and scraps of 1/2” baltic birch. There is a commercial plastic dust collection shroud in the bottom, and it is mounted on a french cleat system so it can slide to the left to cut angles. It works pretty good, I’d say captures 90% of the dust.

Dave that is the cleanest shop I have seen, I even zoomed in looking for sawdust – just can’t find any :) Looks like a great use of the space.

David, this is a pretty nice looking shop that you have to work in. It looks to be well organized and, between the window and the glass in the garage door, it looks like you get quite a bit of natural light in there. Your miter saw station looks pretty good. I have come to appreciate putting the saw below the bench, as you have done. This frees up the bench for other uses when the saw is idle. In my shop I built extension wings for the saw and these tend to eat up quite a bit of real estate.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a tour of your shop.

Great lookin shop! I really like that Makita CMS. My older version of it has and continues to work perfectly. Looks like an efficient layout too.
Later, BTKS

Thanks everyone. I like the SCMS station, but it does eat up alot of real estate in a small shop. I wish they had the new BOSCH articulating SCMS when I purchased the Makita…I mean I love the Makita, but the BOSCH would work better in a smaller shop. The dust hood for the SCMS was “engineered” on the fly as I built it. It didnt have the MDF wings at first and a lot of dust got out (which I promptly swept up…Bruce!) I added the wings and now I get really great DC and it seems to have increased the suction a little. I could have compromised a little and moved the table saw closer to the garage door, but I wanted to be able to work with at least a 6 foot long piece of wood with the door closed. I have been working on tweaking the shop so much, and remodeling my bathroom, I haven’t even really had a chance to attempt a serious project yet….

Nice looking shop you have there, I like the out feed on the TS, and the dust hood around the MS. Way to go, and keeping the dust cleaned up is great, hope I can do as good of a job when my shop is finished. Steve in Oregon
