Hi Jakerjax,

You certainly have a nice work area in your shop. But it looks too clean. Where is the sawdust? :)

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jakerjax,
I got some bad news for you….
Arranging the shop is a never ending process….Ha
I have been “arranging” mine for the past 10 years…LOL
About the time I think it is about right something comes
up to send me into another mode of changing the shop.
My wife keeps wondering when I am going to make something
besides stuff for the shop…Ha
Besides…Half the fun is in the arranging
Good luck and your best ideas come from checking out other peoples shops.

That is an absolutely gorgeous space and looks like at great location as well. I am very jealous. Got to agree with Bob, it is never ending. But it is also a large part of the fun. My tiny workshop is in its third incarnation and I am working on the fourth as we speak. The problem is that you can spend so much time working on the workshop that you dont make anything. No answer to that, just have to be disciplined. I find I want to work on a range of projects all at the same time and never really make any headway on any of them. Stick to one project, finish it move on to the next. Make sure at least every other project is not something for the work shop.

Good luck. Enjoy.

Wow! What a roomy shop. I could fit at least 4 of mine in that shop. Nice!

A lot of wonderful space. In Gainesville I only have 194 sq ft.

As was said above, shop organization is a never ending process. However, the basics are heating/AC, adequate electricity, and lighting. You will never regret insulating the shop. A sub panel is also very nice as you can add circuits as needed. For lighting, I like a combination of incandescent and fluorescent fixtures, on separate circuits. Go with the newer type electronic ballast fluorescent fixtures and select bulbs with the highest color rendering index (CRI). Being able to see true colors is important in a shop.
