Right now I am trying to turn my work room (the garage) into a well organized, flow conscious workshop. I have been focusing on turning, but my first love is furniture design and making. I finally got some more machinery, and careful planning is a necessity. Up to now I have been using movable tables (that is, 2’x2’ pieces of OSB). I pile them up with all my turning tools and accessories, and nothing has a proper place. Right now everything is strewn about haphazard, and I don’t have any storage.
So as the journey begins, I will start with the floor plan. I have yet to run the electrical, so please feel free to give any input on the strength and weaknesses of what I have laid out so far.
10” Rockwell Unisaw (3 phase)
14” Rockwell RAS (3 phase)
8” Rockwell Jointer (3 phase)
Makita 15” Planer
Delta 14” Bandsaw
Buffalo 16” Drill Press
Rollstone Machine Co. Pattermaker’s Lathe
NOVA 1622-44 Lathe
My shop space is 19.5’ wide x 21’ long. I have played around for HOURS with many different layouts. Here’s my favorite.
Thanks for looking,
-- I hope the volume of shavings one creates is directly related to the probablility of one's success, cuz if so I've got it made!!
