San Diego , Ca.
United States

I am new to this site and thought I would put up a few pictures of my shop. Over the last 18 years I have converted my 2 car garage into a very capable cabinet shop. I wish I had more room (doesn’t everyone) but I have made use of every square inch. One thing that helps is that I made a couple of my workstations portable. Sometimes I feel like I am playing the missing tile game in my shop but it works well. I got tired of my building material taking up work space so 2 years ago I had a 7’ x 21’ storage room built on to the side of my shop. I built a new work station where the materials were once stored. After looking at some of the things members on this site have done in their shops I have some ideas for additional improvements in the near future. Comments and questions are welcome.

I like the cabinets under your saw stop. Great use of space.

- Jerome

For dust collection I have a few different methods.
1. There is a Grizzley 1 HP dust collection system connected to my table saw (not shown in photo)
2. I have a portable shopvac that I can connect to the small tools and use as general clean up
3. I have a big fan hanging from the ceiling at the end of my shop. I live in San Diego Ca where it is almost always warm. Garage door is almost always open when I am working. Fan on …door open…dust gone :)

That is a first class shop. I love the organization and that things look easy to find. I confess to some envy of your workspace.
