Griffin, GA 30223
United States

10 lbs. of tenons in a 5 lb. mortise. My shop is only 12’ X 18” but I’ve got most everything I need. My table saw has a cast iron extension plus a cast iron router table extension would saves a bunch of space. I added legs to the router table w/ a shop made duster collector.The french doors are necessary. My table saw blade is a touch over 8’ from the far wall, I can open the doors when cutting something long. Same for the router table. Longer molding can go out the doors. The drill press, chop saw and mortiser are all all the same level. The out feed table is an old wooden drafting table I cut down. It sure would be nice to have a finishing room and a band saw.

Not sure what you are fussing about space for, the doors and windows open, you have plenty of room!

Seriously though, I would LOVE to be able to put up a dedicated detached shop that size. And you have LOTS of floor there, and excellent natural light to boot!

I am sticking a Powermatic bandsaw, powermatic 3450b lathe, powermatic 64a table saw, the Powermatic upright dust collector, Jet 1220 lathe, a 45” x 88” bench, drill press(don’t know what kind yet) and a jointer, probably will add a nice maple planer bench later on.

All in a 12’ x 25’ former basement recreation/family room. I am lucky in some ways that I don’t have all of the cabinetry and counter top(I use peg board myself) taking up precious floor machine space(but I do have a half a bathroom! LOL!) I am also short and small framed so am also very lucky in that department as well haha. =)

I WISHED my shop was seperate from the rest of the house, I love the idea of having an “Out building” shop and that is a really nice shop, very quaint and peaceful looking. Someday, i may do something similar… down the road, maybe. Although, I do like the advantages of having my cable TV blaring old black and white movies from TMC, or having the Military Channel on in the background.
