(2008-2014…I have a three car tandem garage. My shop resides in the tandem, which is about 11’ x 24’. Its elevated on a plywood flloor to minimize joint pain and heat loss. Previous shop was 21’x21’, and I thought this was going to be an impossible transition; although I wish I was back in the larger/square space, this actually isn’t working out so bad.)
2015: WELL, CRAP !!! I needed to relocate, so I had to say goodbye to my beautiful shop. I spent most of my time in the shop making things for the shop. Oh well I need to move on. Funny that most of the comments were about my dust gorilla, which I had to leave behind…along with the table saw and the jointer and the band saw. My arthritis has gotten worse and my shop is now even smaller. I will post pictures once it gets organized.

What a nice shop!! Your shop looks to be well organized and I really like the plywood floor. You are right in that it is much easier to work on as opposed to concrete. It does look like you have a lot going on in there but you appear to have utilzied the available space well.

You have a nice set of tools to play with and I agree with the other comments about the dust collector. That is a nice set-up that you have.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Nice shop, I wish I had a floor like that, concrete isn’t very forgiving. Thanks for the tour.

nice shop. looks like you have a pretty good setup in there. I am pretty impressed with how you got that mongo dust collector packed into that small space.

Out of curiosity did you put everything on a raised floor because of a central drain in your garage bay? in my garage, the 3rd bay has a drain in the center of the floor and everything falls to that drain. So I don’t have a flat floor.

nice shop

there’s no drain. The floor is 2×4’s with foam insulation between, covered with 3/4 plywood. I did it to cushion the place, and to keep the chill away. It works great on both counts.

Very nice set-up and clean. I am sure it has something to do with that large yellow beast in the middle there! Very jealous.

Gr8 shop, well equipped. I think the gorilla needs it’s own room
