I’d like to see your jointer along a longer wall. Maybe swapping out your drill press and the jointer. What are your plans for an assembly area? Have you thought about a dedicated router table, or are you going to build it into your saw station? I also wonder about swapping your compressor and bandsaw, giving you full infeed outfeed on the bandsaw without having to move it. Just some thoughts, hopefully not unsolicited.

I agree. If you want to be able to swing an 8’ board, then you need space to swing an 8 footer.

I agree with the other guys. The jointer will most likely need to go on the longer wall to the right of the table saw.

MOT brings up some great questions, and based on his tool packed space I’d say they he knows what he is talking about.

Even if you are a hobbyist you have to think about workflow.

Thanks for the plans – believe it or not my shop is very close to yours. Mine is 10’x22’, but I have a 6’x10’ “porch” area that is under the same roof. I was thinking about closing the exterior walls in and opening the interior walls (in the porch area to make the shop about the same size as yours. I agree with Mot and Todd, you should reconsider the location of your jointer to a longer wall area. It looks like the area with the planer, jointer, dust collector, etc. is a little crowded.

I found that there is no wall long enough for my jointer, so it’s on a mobile base and it gets pulled out and put back every time I use it.

Okay, so it doesn’t always get put back!
