Topic tags/keywords: shop re-organizing resource

I wanted to share this with folks that don’t get Woodcraft Magazine. I bought a subscription about 3 months ago. The August/September issue of 2013 has this kool little Woodshop Organizer in it, where you can layout a new shop, re-do your shop, or just look and dream of expanding or building one. I am planning on moving a wall so I can get another 10’x29’, and go from about 300 to almost 600 sq. feet….........when I get my 3-in1 crib done…... I know, don’t say it. Anyway, this will help someone immensely if you want to build or re-organize. Thnx for lookin in, and anything said, good/bad/ugly is appreciated. After fiddlin with this little grid for about 3 hours, I hope my shop can look somethin like this; (when I git round to it) :)

Thanks, and I’m glad you have room to expand—my basement walls are not very cooperative. LOL

Great addition you will have! We all need more shop space! As soon as I built my barn, it was too small!
Cheers, Jim

I just had to tease you…after I put my spectacles on, I saw it was your TS : )
I hope you find the time sooner than I will to reorganize your shop.

Roger, I thought that was a nice article, specially cutting out the little tool shapes.
I did my shop in Google SketchUp a couple years ago.
Handy because it lets me work in 3 dimensions.

A nice large shop will be nice Roger. Can’t wait to see it finished. Like Pete, I use Sketchup for my planning, but the cut-outs work well too.

I had to go measure mine, only 23 X 12, but I have to share it with my pickup in the wintertime, to enlarge
mine I would not only have to knock out the wall, but would have to build onto the garage. Hope you have
fun planning and using all that space when you get a round toit.

.....so let me get this straight. I have this borrowed corner of a garage to store my tools and have to do the actual work out in the alleyway. And you are doubling your shop space from 300’ to 600’??? There is just something really, really wrong with that!
