I didnt have the ideal space to start … and I wanted a wide selection of tools and equipment …. I think it turned out OK.

The shop started as an open air car port that I walled in using shiplap sideing. I added a 170 sq ft side room with oak floors and cabinets finished with redwood beams and skylights. The main shop area is 25×24 where I added overhead storage and 25” bench that passes through a door to the added room with a Dewalt heavy-duty 12” double-bevel sliding compound miter saw on a mobile stand that slides in and locks in flush and square to the bench next to an 8 ft digital fence.

Pretty much everything is on heavy duty rollers so i can create more space when needed

This is a nice shop!! You have organized it well and everything is neat and tidy. If my wife were to see your shop I would never hear the end of it. :) She is borderline OCD with respect to keeping things orderly and neat and yells at me if I “forget” to clean up my shop after working in there because I will track sawdust into the house.

That is a really nice bench that you have to work on and you have a wondeful set of tools to play with as well. The cabinetry that you have added to your shop looks really good. I used that believe that shop furnishings only had to be functional and there was no need to dress them up since they were only “shop cabinets”. But I have come to understand that shop furnishing can incorporate both form and function. Yours do this in an admirable fashion. And I really like the wood flooring in your adjacent shop. That is something that is not usually seen in a shop floor but it looks really good.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Looks fantastic! You have a lot of big equipment in that shop and it looks like you thought through the layout well. I’m sure there will be a lot of green envy when everyone sees your setup.
