I’ve mostly finsihed up a slightly larger 22×20 basement shop… and I layed out a lot of options in Auto-CAD using a lot of “recycled” materials that I picked up over the years on the cheap/free (old kitchen caps, etc…)..

I found the best configuration for me was a ‘U’ shape set up with my primary bench and most of my stationary tools arranged in an island in the middle with DC going to them for the end of the ‘U’.

Then I have the cabinets (with plywood counter tops) and two aux. bencks, my air compressor (in a sound proof box), mechanics tool box and some tools that don’t require DC running around the perimeter agains three walls.

Here’s a screen shot of my layout…

I hope to post a “my shop” pictorial some day soon…. but the place is a constant ship wreck with mulitple projects going on right now.
