I’ve looked at a lot of workshop profiles on LumberJocks lately. Everyone tends to setup their shop a little different. For those of you that read my Fire Therapy topic in the coffee lounge, you know that I’ve been doing a little housekeeping lately. Since my mass exodus of junk, I have an incredible amount of room in my shop to begin to actually set it up for the first time in my life.
Before I messed around for three or four days hanging shelves and cabinets, I thought I’d ask a few questions to help my thought process along… What are your personal preferences for your shop? Do you like the bandsaw and tablesaw, planer, etc to run parallel with each other? Is there an actual tried and true method for where things should go to make things efficient? Is there one particular feature of your shop that you can’t live without?
My shop space is an entire pole barn, 24×32 with a concrete floor. I’ll see about posting some pics soon, if that would help.
Thanks in advance…
