I have a space 28’ x 36’ to work in. There is a small room off to one side about 14’ x 12’ with 2 windows that I am thinking to use for finishing because it can be closed off to keep out dust, but has ample ventilation.
The 36’ width is defined by two garage doors, one double-car bay and one single bay. Wood comes in the double door and then makes it’s way around the shop. I am still contemplating different layouts. Nothing is fixed to a wall yet. All the tools and workstations are semi-mobile and scattered randomly around the shop where it seemed convenient to put them at the time.
The table saw is at the center though. That becomes obvious with very little experience. Then from right to left come the band saw and jointer, then the router table, and a general purpose bench with a small drill press at the back. Next comes the miter saw, and lastly on the left is the planer. I would like to set up a small table for sharpening in the 1-car bay.
