My woodworking shop is in the garage of our home in southern Louisiana. It is a three car garage, laid out as two cars wide, and on the left side two cars deep. Like a big “L. ” My goal is to be able to get two cars in it when I need to, and routinely just my beautiful wife’s car in there every night. With that in mind all the woodworking tools and storage elements need to be mobile in the front area and fixed along the walls in the rear area, with some mobile tools that can to be moved around to facilitate certain operations. Picture 1 is with the cars in, not much other than “emergency” work can be done.
Picture 2 is the same area without the cars, but with tools stored to get my beautiful wife’s car in each night.
Considering the small space I have to do actual work it is amazing how much space I can come up with moving things out of my way. You will see that as you take a tour and see me working on projects. My website has a more complete view of the shop and equipment,, check it out and get a better tour.

Be safe, God bless

Nice shop, lots of room without the cars. I did notice the RAS with the exposed saw blade, looks scary without the blade guard.

Yes, sorry about that I had been working on truing the saw up and did not have the blade guard on. Normally the blade guard is in place when I sue the saw and while it is stored. Nice catch, I need to be more careful of my background when taking pictures.
