« Part 2: Cabinet system for the Shop Part 3 of My shop series Part 4: I may even have a ceiling soon »

Here is the new shop skeleton with only 120VAC outlets and two lights. I am hoping that any of you that would like to see me put in some special do-dad or work station please tell mr what and in your experiance why and I will do my best to add that feature.

Hey Bob, congradulations on the new shop. I bet it works out nicely for you and I see you already have your clamp rack ready to go. Same kind IVe used for many years. I dont know what I could offer you since you shoud no better than anyone else what your working situation is. Only thing I will offer is that I personally would never put a tablesaw in the center of a shop less than 3000 sq ft or so. Always seems to work out well on the starboard wall as you enter the big door. If you use a router wing on your tablesaw I would recomend it on the left wing. You ll sure want to address the lighting as well. Enjoy the shop JB

Try this website for ideas:

I have posted this link before (got it from The Wood Whisperer), and I check it out all the time. One thing that you mentioned that this guy focuses on is sound control, so I hope you find it useful.

i love how tall your ceiling is. LOL Oh yeah… and the amount of space. Nice. I would say that you can never have too many outlets…
