Hello fellow woodworkers,

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on setting up a new shop.I am currently building a 24×28 shop and I don’t really know how to set it up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There are lots of things to consider,how you will place what machinery you have or will have ,the flow of material, having plenty of electrical outlets for the types of machines you will have, wood storage, lighting, dust collection, and more. It all starts with what kind of woodworking your going to do. A cabinet maker requires more room than a carver or model builder. If you want to have a wood shop for general use you will want to start with your table saw with plenty of room for in-feed and out-feed and room around both ends. this is why many times table saws end up in the middle of the shop width wise. Then you want to have your chop saw or radial arm saw close to cross cut material many times they in up close to the middle length wise.
Also close to your table saw you should have your joiner to edge what you have ripped. Then in reasonable proximately a work bench or table. There is a shop layout program on grizzlys web site that can help.

Good place to start is at “www.Grizzly.com”. Shop for tools and they have a sitee to go and layout your shop depending on what tools you have or need.

Hey Hunny,
A 24×28 is a good size to start with so make it as environment friendly and safe as possible.
I agree with Jim…....go to Grizzly for the additional info you require.

Have your say...
