My shop is a 16×24 garage behind my house. The inside walls are insulated and covered with 5/8” drywall for that extra “bump” protection. Wired with 110 and 220, with a sleeve air conditioner and a natural gas furnace to keep the climate consistent year round. Lots of fluorescent lighting to keep the eyes sharp, and a home built dust collector hanging from the ceiling to help me breathing a little longer. Clamp storage is mostly on the wall and on the side of the wood rack. As far as machines, I have Sawstop table saw, General planer and jointer, King bandsaw and dust collector, and they are all on wheels so I can keep them out of the way when not in use. Various other hand and power tools and jigs that keep me learning how to use them.
Added notes –
I have edited the shop pictures to show my recent upgrades. I added a wood storage rack, and the bench at the end of my bench is actually an inside kennel for my beagle Zeus. Now he can get into the shop from the back yard through a dog door I put in the back wall of the garage into his own little apartment inside out of the cold or heat depending on the time of year. I added a door on the inside for the days that I don’t want him to get in past his house. At the end of the wood rack is a couple wall mounted shelves for storing jigs, and some small pieces of wood. I still have to share the shop with the lawnmower and other tools, but hopefully can build another shed out back soon to give me a little more room in here. There is a vac system mounted on the wall that runs from a secondary shop vac to the cut off saw and band saw to keep the dust down and the King dust collector takes care of the dust from the other machines. I try to spend as much time as life allows here, but it just never seems to be enough.
Thanks for checking it out.
