« Part 1: Making plans - looking for ideas / resources Part 2 of Journey to a better workshop series no next part

Man, I am loving sketch-up! and those people who post their scale 3D drawings to share. It made it much easier to play around with different layouts. Although not are all the exact brands I have for tools it gives me a great sense of what works. It is great to play in my new shop before I even move in.

I don’t own a jointer yet, but plan to soon after I get the shop. everything else is fairly representative except the benches & tables I need to build.

Below are some views. let me know if you see any problems, or ideas on work flow.. I am going to need to run some electrical and want to have a good idea. (electrical panel is on the opposite side of the wall from the dust collector)

Plan is for everything on wheels. I still need to add details like clamp wall, tool wall etc.

Not sure I would locate my mini split right next to the bag on the dust collector, seems like it would blow extra dust into the mini split before it gets the chance to be circulated by the air cleaner.

Good point, thank you. I was thinking about having the dust collector nearest the machines that would produce the heaviest chips. But you’re right, I don’t want that mini split catching a lot of dust.
