United States

The workshop is in a walkout basement, warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and is 19×26. The photographs are taken from opposite corners. I’ve divided the shop into a milling area, in front of the table saw, and an assembly and finishing area, on the other side of it (though the work usually creeps all over the place when the sawdust flies and the whole effort to be organized goes the way of the dodo). About half of the power machines are stationary, the other half on wheels. The on-going challenge is to find enough space to store and dry wood. The larger tools:

Grizzly cabinet saw
Grizzly 14 band saw
Makita sliding miter saw
Dewalt planer
Ridgid jointer
Ridgid drill press

Thanks for looking.

Welcome fellow newbie, I am envious over the walk-out basement you have. Loading sheet goods through the house usually employs the help of others for me. Well thought out layout, nice selection of equipment too.
