My shop is ~14’ x 20’ and located in my basement. The three interior walls are covered with 1/2” plywood to allow fastening “stuff” to the wall. As you can probably see, I have way too much “stuff”.

The table saw is a 1980s vintage “electronic” contractors saw. I have a router table attached to one side and the saw is attached to a bench that also serves as a cutoff table. The whole thing becomes my assembly area. This requires careful planning to avoid having to clear everythiing off to make another cut before proceeding. I don’t think that I have ever actually managed to do this.

The slabs in the first picture are the drawer fronts (or will be) and the boxes on the second pict are the drawers for the file cabinet that I am currently working on.

The bench in the last picture is new. I replaced an older and larger bench with this one so that I could bring my tool boxes in out of the garage.

Map, you have a nice space in which to work. It looks like you have organized your shop space well and are making efficient use of the available space. I really like the table saw/workbench station. This gives you a multi-tasking work center.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.

Welcome to LJ’s Nice shop,but NO, one can NOT have enough “stuff” , only space issues. I know how you feel about having to clear the assembly table to cut another piece. I have to do it all the time too!
