Cleveland, OH 44124
United States

My shop is located in the basement, so dust collection is always a priority. It’s only 14’ x 12’, so I’ve learned to find nooks and crannies to store things.

March 2009 Update:
I did a few modifications recently – widened the shelves and organized the lumber (and got rid of lots of little cutoffs that I was sure I’d use someday), added a Grizzly drill press, improved the dust collection at my chop saw, and did a general cleanup (once a year whether it needs it or not!).

Well, that picture was taken the first day after putting up the tools. I guarantee it doesn’t look that neat now!

Your shop does look well organized. All the tools are arranged nicely and readily available when you need them. I have a tendency to put them in drawers, which keeps them out of sight, but it does make finding them a challenge sometimes.

Nice shop. Thanks for the post.

I’m always jealous of the “tidy and clean shop”. There are times when I am embarrased to let anyone in my shop as it looks like a hurricane went through it. I keep the floor clean and for the most part, remove chips, shavings and dust but &^%$, just about every stationary tool becomes a work bench, workbenches become storage centers…............people wonder how I get anything done.

A very organized shop…something I’m still doing a little at a time. Things have improved on this end this year…and small doesn’t necessarily mean ineffective. There are some woodworkers who turn out exceptional things from very small shops. Thanks for sharing.
