I have a basement shop that serves triple duty. It is the main workspace for household projects and it also contains the utilities (furnace, water heater, circuit panel, etc.). I would like to add a few more woodworking tools to use as I build cabinets for the “occupied” portion of the basement. I have been eyeing a Grizzly G0690 cabinet saw as my first addition. However, before I make a large investment, I want to make sure it will not be too cramped. I will be buying a mobile base with it, so I can move it and my other tools (already equipped) as needed.
I originally had my storage cabinets/workbench along the top wall to accomodate my old miter saw and any long boards. I have since purchased a sliding compund miter saw that came with a folding/rolling base. My thoughts are to move the workbench and cabinets (I will lose 30” of length) to the alcove area, but I am not sure if this will leave me enough room. The location in the second drawing seems to be about the only position that will allow me to cut down sheet goods without disrupting the flow too much.
The sewer stack and the water supply don’t help my options much. I am not open to busting up the floor to move them.
