Good evening LJ’s has been a somewhat good week in my shop with the newly acquired Delta Mortiser that arrived on Monday morning :) ( Kinda hard to believe I had this a week already :-P) It blended in with the rest of my tools perfect :) Early this week I was thumbing through an old Delta-gram book and came upon a article on shop layout and said this looked kinda familiar after looking at another book Do-it-yourself manual from the 70’s I realized they were almost the same!! only being a foot different either way !!!
After several tries to make my shop less cluttered I was somewhat enthralled with this plan it was 12’x15’ and had all of the tools except a radial arm saw instead of a miter saw was used. BINGO There was my problem I have my shop backwards to the plan, trying to be able to cut 10’ boards was hindering my space restrictions and efficiency, let me explain.
My miter saw station measures 10’ across by 2’ deep and is along the 16’ wall in my shop leaving me 10’ of available space, place my table saw 30” fence in the center and a 18” deep workbench along the wall and viola a cramped area and a breeding ground for clutter after reading the article I began pondering then using Google sketch-up found out my problem now begins the task of revamping the shop layout by placing the miter saw along the 12’ wall and scooting some of the tools around to better suit their task. While I am at it Might as well paint the floor again and add that deck I was planning on to the front to kill the mud hole in front of my shop as I start working on marketing my business and upgrading my templates for production of my chairs I will have a busy week ahead of me and I will post pics as I go Until next week
Take care :)
