I’m in the proccess of building my shop. It’s limited to 12 by 16 because I’m only allowed 200 sq feet. I don’t really have room for anything much bigger either. I will post more pictures as I progress. Once I’m done comes the fun part of filling it with tools.

My shop is about the same size—is 14 feet by 16 feet and you can do a lot in that space.

Go to my home and click on my workshop.

Did some more work on my shop, it is starting to become functional. Basically my rule is if it is on the floor, it needs to be on wheels. Anything that can be off the ground is like my storage and air compressor.

Trying to post these via mobile device is difficult, hopefully this works. I also make good use of my crosscut sled and straightedge with circular saw and that saves a lot of space.

Thanks guys. I also wanted to show my air compressor setup. The cord reaches anywhere in the shop and since it is so high up, it tends not to get snagged, kind of like those drive in do it yourself car washes. It is hard to see but there are some hooks underneath the compressor where I hang my air filter. I put an outlet behind the rafter for them. Future projects include under floor dust collection with a shed type dormer to keep the actual dustcollector itself outside. Again this will save space and keep it quiet. My shop vac is so loud. I am also going to make an all in one movable tool stand that provides outfeed extension for benchtop jointer, planer, mitre saw, and router table. I can’t really describe how it will work, but once I post pictures it will make sense. This Has been a 2 year project so it is exciting to see it start to take shape.

Have your say...
