Here is how my shop is currently set up, somewhat improved from the messy version I had pictures of before. I have most of the equipment in the back of my 1 car garage, with just barely enough room to get the car in on snowy/cold days if I wheel some tools aside. The bandsaw and lathe are old ~1950s Delta models that I’ve restored.

Bob, we’ve all had a shop like this. Mine looks like this every time we move. Re-organisation is an ongoing thing for most people. Don’t sweat it. You’ve got the before pictures, looking forward to seeing the after ones.

Bob, I see quite a bit of potential in the shop space that you have to work with. I agree a lumber rack will help and some shop cabinetry/benches to get your tools off the floor would be a good idea as well. You have a nice start on your shop. All you need is to make some sawdust to get it into top notch shape.

I am looking forward to watching your progress.

Bob:

You’re not alone, all workshops are in need of organization, sometimes desperate. It’s a never ending adventure – enjoy! – and keep us posted.

No one I know started with the ideal shop and not many I know have it except perhaps Karson and Kent… but even they are still doing things to their workshops…... I have an on going battle with position of equipment and workflow.. always a work in progress… keep plugging away one bit at a time…
