My workshop takes up about half of a one car garage. I share the space with bikes, the freezer and general household storage. I’ve traded up from secondhand Shopsmith to free standing machines. My intent was to get a SawStop but I found a Powermatic 64A at a price I couldn’t pass up. The mobile cart is actually my second attempt. My first version was 8 feet long and could only be used in the driveway. My new one is 63 inches long and has a custom drawer on the side designed to hold saw parts. The left wing is a Bench Dog router table with home made router lift from shop notes. I enclosed the motor and created a built in out-feed table. It’s plumbed with 4 inch PVC that hooks up to my dust collector. I purchased an aftermarket blade guard from a guy on the internet. It’s called a Shark Guard and is a great addition to my shop. It collects almost all the dust.
I modeled my miter-saw station out of Shop Notes. The top is wood storage rack for rough wood. The second is for milled lumber and the third from the top holds my jigs and has cubies for short scraps. The peg board holds general hand tools. The miter saw is on drawer slides and can cut virtual any length of board with the garage door open. I mounted my drill press on the right side. The post is far enough back so it doesn’t interfere with miter saw.
My wall tool cabinet is modeled off of what you see in Wood smith Shop. I just haven’t had a chance to make the sliding door. Yes that is an Optimums Prime helmet mounted behind my band saw. The only purpose it serves is to make my shop just that much more awesome.
My next big build is a for real wood working work bench.
I build a bunch of stuff with my middle son. He’s 10 and wants to start making YouTube videos. We have a lot of fun building together!
