I have a large shop. It has two rooms. One side I keep the camper and work on my old truck. The other room which is 12×20 is my wood shop. My work benches are made of MDF and is a design from a magazine. They have curved supports which allow me to clean underneath them. One end is my table saw, router table, drum sander, and miter saw. The other end is my scroll saw, band saw, planer, sanders, lathe and drill press. As you can see it is a work in progress. I want to build a wall unit for the end that is unfinished to store misc items and scrap wood. I need to add aditional storage under the lathe. This summer I want to build another work bench for my miter saw which should clean up that end of the shop. As you can see I also need a vac system and an air filter. I also want to redo my lighting and add 8 ft light fixtures in 2 rows, the entire length of the shop. I do have have a AC but no heater other than a propane heater.

Greg, thanks for the tour. You have a pretty nice shop. It looks like you have utilized your shop space well and I especially like the wall mounted benches. This is a good way to add work space to a shop that helps to conserve space. You have a nice set of tools as well.

Greg, you have put together a pretty nice shop. The legless bench is an excellent way to save space in your shop. I also like the lumber storage over the window as well. This is essentially “dead space” and you have managed to get some use out of it. The windows also look like they let quite a bit of natural light in there too.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.
