My research on the net shows that a typical garage size (although a bit tight on the cars) is 20×20 feet.
We would be lucky if we could have the whole space in our disposal to turn it into a woodworking workshop. Unfortunately this is not the case; there are other things which go into the garage, and the Misses won’t be happy throwing her stuff out or other times the garage is turned into the laundry area. Hmm you do not want to go to work with a stain on your shirt!
So whichever the case is or is used for, I am going to suppose that I got together all my charms and nice behavior, took the misses out to a nice romantic dinner, and with allot of persuasion and promises that she will have plenty of space for her things and everything will be more organized and bla bla bla…
I finally convinced her to let me use 2/3s of the 20×20 feet garage space.
- What about the cars?
- What about them? Its not like we have convertibles, both have rooftops, but my workshop doesn’t have one, Pleaseeeeee.
What a story!!! Shhhhh It’s a lie.
Anyway let’s get serious.
So let’s imagine that your woodworking machines are of medium to small size, but you do have a complete set of all necessary basic equipment, tools and accessories.
No design is ever perfect and especially if it’s a fictional space, with fictional equipment, but never the less I gave it a try to see what fits in such a area.
Off course there will be lots of different ideas and opinions on how to organize better this space, and that’s where you Lumberjocks friends come into play.
Suggest ways to make it better and more organized or even more you can play with your SketchUp by adding, moving or remove things to the original file which I will upload for you and you will be able to download from 3D Warehouse to this LINK.
So if you want to give it a shot and play this game, lets hear from you and lets have some fun and see what we can do all together.
