Posting some pics of my workshop. (Finally figuered out how to size photos) My brother in law and I built my house about 18 years ago. I was involved in the design and therefor added 20×8 to the east side of the attached garage. It has evolved into a very satisfactory work space. Dust is the biggest problem, but am gradually getting a handle on that. For any who may view these posts, your comments and suggestions are welcome. I have found that even old dogs can be taught. It just takes a little more prodding. I like tool benches and items that are multipurpose. Maybe a little OCD showing, but organization saves a lot of frustration. I am good at stealing ideas, keep them coming. Love lumberjocks and pinterest.

More pictures of workshop tools and setup. The five way bench is a great spacesaver. I had to mount the three tools on an angel to make it work without runing into each other. One side has a Ridgid sander (great tool) a cut off saw modified to cut metal, and a shortened drill press. The other has a wood splitter (since the picture the foot pedal has been extended to the floor) When opened up it has a downdraft sanding table. I should have taken a pic but inside the sanding table are sheets of 1/4 inch glass slopped towards the

port.

Like the combo bandsaw/ disc sander using the veritas router fence on it as well. Also the multipurpose lathe stand. But I think the track saw is my favorite of all.
1 Bandsaw with table extension. Veritas router fence adapted for bandsaw fence as well
2 Disc sander added to bandsaw
3 Delta planner, my newest toy, still needs chip collection box
4 lathe with shelf and storage
5 lathe with shelf open
6 track saw, the marriage saver, no help required to break down sheet goods

Awesome shop Ed!!! I too, am a nut on organization…..You have obviously spent a great deal of time on working on your space…..I used to feel guilty about working on my shop instead of my projects but not any more.
Now I must say, you might be more obssesive about organization than I seeing as I don’t sort me zip ties though!!!!
lol

Did I miss the Table saw or do you live without one?

Great space, great shop…thanks for showing
Mike

Thanks for the comments all you good people, and yes Steve it is time to make some sawdust, just have to keep from tracking into the house.
moke I enjoy making jigs and organizing as much as building things, The payoff though is avoiding frustration by being organized. Expecting perfection is another matter. The table saw is folded up and sitting under the breaker box. I still use it quite a bit but love the track saw for breaking down sheets.
Greetings to my fellow canadians Steve in Prince George, just a hens race away and Roman in Calgary.
