Hello all – I am new to the site…have worked with wood since I was a kid, but never had the toys for it. I am about to buy a sawstop table saw, dust collection, drill press, maybe a lathe…I am trying to determine the optimal layout for bay 3 of a 3 car garage. I attached a snapshot from Google Sketchup.
Sorry if this is a redunant post (new here) but I would certainly appreciate any feedback and/or advice from the experts. As you see, I plan to build a 28” deep workbench along the entire wall with cabinets above. I will recess the miter saw as indicated. The center bench will probably be something like the shaker type workbench with cabinets and drawers…the others probably just large cabinet drawers (to house a dewalt dust collector for miter saw for example).
Another question is what to make the bench out of…I thought I would use mainly pine for the structure and then a hardwood top…is that reasonable or use more hardwood?
Thanks for any input.
