My shop is in my two car garage. I have to fight with the family to keep them from thinking of it as something other than a shop.

I like your shop layout. I have a 220 sq. ft. shop and probably far too many tools to fit it comfortably. I’ve been thinking about a unit like the one you have for your planer – that I could use as a central place for a few tools. I like your set-up.

Great shop. I like the support for the tools and for aligning your Mortise setup.

I really like the bench. It is a planer/router/mortise bench as well as my primary work area (till I build a bench)

You can find further discussion about the work bench here

Hi Scott,

Sorry about taking so long to get around to looking at your workshop post but I am glad it came back up on my list. You have a nice shop and a great collection of tools. Initially I was curious about separations in the router bench and the next photo clarified it for me. I can understand why you really like the bench. It is a nice space saver.

Thanks for sharing. I really appreciate the visual tours.

Scott, very nice shop. I’m have a garage shop too. I like the multipurpose use of the router table and the planer station. I have the same model planer as you.

COOL Shop, Scott!

That looks like what was described as the Ulitimate WorkTable/Bench, I think… it was a few months/years ago… I think… I don’t remember where I saw it… A Forum somewhere…

Looks like you’re make it work for you… You can make another center section for any new tool you want… Miter Saw, etc. A really COOL project for the small shop.

I couldn’t find what you did that used Ebony pins, per your “What is it?” posting… Is it there or did I misunderstand?
