This is my 2 car garage that I fitted out for my wood shop. I have a PCS175 Saw Stop as my work horse of the shop. I went and bought a Saw Stop because I want to teach my 5 kids woodworking and safety needed with that. I pair the saw stop with a collection of Dewalt tools form the 13” planer, drills, track saws and more. I built a faux wall to hang french cleats on and put all the clamps and drill charging station onto. Rockin’ the HF Dust collector with plans to upgrade to a cyclon soon. Plans on wood storage and a chop saw station for the future. The workbench/assembly table is made from 3/4 in plywood interlocking with Melamine top (i have wrapped the top edges with 1” thick Red Oak since the picture) I made the table so I am able to house my 1000mm X 1000mm X-Carve. I run the X-Carve with a fanless mini PC i bought off of Amazon and mounted an extra 32” TV for the monitor. Large investment but I have already seen a ROI on the purchase within the 2nd month of owning it…. LOVE IT!!!

Great start! Can’t wait to see it 1 year from now. Your kids will remember shop time with you forever. Spending quality time bonding with children is so valuable and missed opportunities can never be recovered.

Nice setup, looks like you have prioritized practical organization and it shows. And great idea to make a place for the CNC without having to give up table space. Mobile planer cart next? Mine is also near the floor right now and a bit of an awkward beast to squatlift, and I’m pretty sure yours is heavier than mine :)

Yes, I have been currently keeping the Planner on the left side of the table saw. Working great but losing about 20” in the saw top. John Heinz made a good planner cart with built-in dust collection. I might build that.
