« Part 1: Workbench Update Part 2 of Workshop Make-Over series Part 3: Table Saw update: Pt 1 »

I forgot to show the current layout of the shop in the first Blog,, without this information the rest will not make much sense.

So as you will see I do not have a good space for assemble of projects, so this update is all about maximising the limited space that I have.

Episode 3 will now contain the Table saw upgrade.

It’s an enviable setup, but I agree…assembly is limited. I’m looking forward to seeing the updates!

I guess it’s all relative, Tony. I’d die for a shop like this. (Course, if I died – I wouldn’t need a shop like this. LOL)

I agree with Don – “I would die for a shop like this” Well, maybe not die but envious for sure!

I appreciate the kind comments, but do not forget, this is how I make my living – as commercial workshops go it is a little small – it is only a 2 car garage – NO CARS ALLOWED – plus another garage. I need another 500 square feet, with a 9 to 10’ celing. this means I can then work on multiple projects and/or have another woodworker in the shop at the same time.

Still I have another 14 years and 50 weeks befoire they retire me – so plenty of time to get a bigger workshop – I need to use the M7 more and start building a log workshop!!!!
