The center piece of my shop is my Table saw station which I built 4years ago after getting back into woodworking after closing my business in 2012 (that’s another story for another time) I purchased a Jet contactor saw off of Craig’s list and designed my station. I just recently moved to a home with a double car garage last march so I have much more room. I’m constantly improving and organizing it, which I’m sure we all do. Right now I have a Ridgid 12” planner, Craftsman 6” jointer, Delta 12” drill press, Rikon 10” band saw, Cambell Hausfeld 55 gal air compressor, Wen air filtration system and harbor freight dust collector with chip separator. I just ordered a Laguna C-Flux 2 HP dust collector which I’ve being dreaming about for a long time. I’ll post pictures once it’s all set up.

Your shop is neat as a pin – I’m envious. Much to like, but in particular I think the assembly table is pretty sweet.

Thank you for comment cmmyakman, It’s of course it’s a Ron Paulk knock off with some influences from jay Bates.
Works out well

I love the table saw station. It definitely is the centerpiece.

To start my new venture in the woodworking hobby, I was going to buy a new table saw but it looks like I’ll have to hang on to the hand-me-down Craftsman for a while. As a result, I want to build a station that I can add a decent fence system to. I don’t want to get too extravagant if I end up with a new table saw at some point. But if I were to get extravagant, it would be to this degree.

That is a beautiful piece of shop furniture, JWhite.

Great layout for your shop. Yours is probably the closest, general garage layout I’ve seen to mine. I’ve been struggling to find ways to make it flow better until I saw yours. I’m going to be experimenting a similar layout today. Do you feel like you’re crammed in any way? Thanks for posting and welcome to LJ.

I think I have the same table saw you have. The fence system looks just like mine, though it looks like you attached some sides to the fence. I love your tablesaw station. I don’t suppose you have plans for that? I had made the one Art Mulder made (Words n Wood) but I had problems with the 2×4 on the front twisting. I’ve been considering other options since.

You’ve got a great looking shop. Thanks for sharing!

Nice use of space… I posted a review a while back on upgrading the venerable HF dust collector – make it two-stage, upgrade the impeller, etc. – here is the link: (you may have to search the reviews or cut and paste this link, as it doesn’t seem to allow hyperlinks here). Check it out – this has worked great for me, and saved me some serious bucksickles. One big plus on my setup is I can just exhaust outside, although that means heating new air – TANSTAAFL applies.

As others have already mentioned, Great layout of your given space. I especially like how you have your dust collection and has given me a few ideas to possibly move forward with my own. Currently just have a Rigid shop vac.
Thanks for sharing!
