Welcome! This shop kicks butt a couple different ways: the overhead wood storage works REALLY well. I just screw some scrap wood sticks with drywall screws and then screw them to the joists with single drywall screws. They’re over my head and hold a ton. Another thing that works well is the work flow from the table saw over the router table to the Roubo bench. And the Roubo is great for hand work. The leg vise lets me joint really long boards in one stroke. It’s top is dead flat for unwinding stock. The little portable planer does yeoman’s work flattening stock that has been unwound. I’ve probably created 5 cords of sawdust with it without a complaint. The Grizzly bandsaw lives up to its name. I can resaw with it. Probably hard to see under the lathe is a giant Moxon vise. I can use the jaws to guide the end grain cuts on dovetails. Improvement: definitely installing the router into the saw table.
