These are the latest pics of my shop. I’ve done a lot of reorganizing to try to save space. My shop is 12 X 14 and really cluttered. I was able to move one of the cabinets and place it under a similar cabinet on the north wall. This freed up space on the west wall for all my lumber. I even made a rolling scrap bin to hold all my cut offs. By stacking the cabinets on the north wall it actually created a space for me to turn into a bookshelf. I made some rails and ordered some plexigass to use as sliding doors. Now I can see all my books and keep them from getting dusty. I made some shelves on the other side of the north wall (there is a 4ft wall that sticks out of the middle of the north wall for support of the above loft) to store my miter saws and other stuff, and am able to roll my tablesaw underneath to free up space. I made this temporary rolling workbench/assembly table until I figure out what I want. After all, this is a small shop so whatever I make will need to pull double duty as a sturdy workbench and an assembly table.
Right now I’m trying to figure out where to place the clutter you see on the RAS and the workbench. I’ll probably make some sort of peg board shelving system to go on the wall. I’ve been seeing them a lot lately.
With everything stationed against the walls it leaves me plenty of floor space for when I need it. I just need to make sure that I plan all my operations together so I’m not constantly pulling out machines and setting up more than once!
Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.
