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.

Now this looks like a nice shop to to. You appear to have plenty of room in there, the windows let in quite a bit of natural light and you have a nice collection of tools to play with. And the ceiling height and ac are big pluses in my book as well. I know I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

@dbhost -There is no better day than a day spent in the shop. Unfortunately I only get to do it on weekends.

When I was searching for maple tables on craigs list I saw an ad that said “Dunk and Fife table $40.00” The Duncan Phyfe table you have under the chopsaw reminded me of this funny ad.

@exelectrician – I did not know that’s what it’s called. The plan is to build a miter saw cabinet and then move that table into the next room for re-finishing. I suspect it’s a cheap reproduction. It’s got a thin mahogany veneer.

Love your miter saw stand/table. My mom had one just like it in her dinning room ! lol
You have a really nice set up and I’d say you have enough wood to last for a while !
