Moved this summer (2017) from a place where had a 20’x16’ two story “wash house” for a shop. The new place has 2 car attached garage but not really practical for a wood shop. Found a 12’x24’ used portable building already wire with 100 amp panel and a RV type plug so I could get it powered easily. Am in the process of designing the inside and constructing the inside to house my tool inventory. First up was a bench for the miter saw and radial arm saw. The bench is 36 inches deep and the height is the same as my table saw so it be used to support sheet goods. The top is 3/4” plywood with a temper (hardboard) set on top to give durable slick surface. It is 15’ 9” long with the saws shelves set so their tables are level the bench surface. The miter saw is positioned so it is 10’ from blade to end wall and the radial arm is set at 8’ blade to other end wall. I’m putting up peg board as wall board so I have plenty of quick storage for hand tools while I build cabinets and racks. Put in over head board storage.

I am considering moving to Whidbey Island, Wa. Is that where you are? Would like to know more. And if you have any suggestions for locations or wood souces. I would love to see more of your shop.

Nice shop! I really like Whidbey, but I am not giving up my little slice over in Sedro Woolley.
