Looks good! I hope to do the same once I finish them shed and get all the other junk out.

What fence is that on your table saw?

Craig, I put a Shop Fox aftermarket fence on there. It’s a Beisemeyer style fence. The factory fence on my Porter Cable Tablesaw started slipping over time. This thing is solid and accurate!!

Dean, it’s already happend!

Very nice… I’m in the process of redoing my 2 car garage shop. I hope it looks as good as your when complete. I really like that miter station/wood rack. Do you have plans for that? What was your inspiration there?

-- I cut that thing twice and it's still too short!

I kind of combined a few different miter saw stations I had found online. The main inspiration came from the deluxe crosscut station with lumber rack found in Woodcraft Magazine.

Thanks for posting. I am slowly setting up my garage shop and you have given me several organization ideas. Your “everything in its place” shop takes full advantage of limited space. I think the miter saw/lumber rack is really clever.

Thanks! I think shop organization is more important for us with smaller shops than might be for someone with a larger shop. We kind of get the best bang for the buck as far as real estate goes if we make the best use of the space.
