The six pictures on the right you see is the way my shop used to look like in Huntsville.
Couldn’t figure how to add new one back once the old pictures were deleted.

I moved two years ago and so have a different lay out now in my 12×20 shop out behind the house.

I have to do all my wood working sitting down so everything is low and on casters so I can jiggle things around when not in use to have more open space.
My main work table is mounted to the wall.

Then as we go around the shop I have shelves that were there when I got the house so that helped.

My table saw is a Dewalt and also a small miter saw all set up low and easy to use sitting.
Take note that the table saw fence can be used as a stop block for the miter saw for longer boards, as both are at the same height.

The drill press comes next and is a 1983 Shop Smith mounted to the wall and off the floor.

There is a set a drawers beside the drill to handle all the odd ball things I use for drilling and drum sanding.
The band saw stays close to here as I use it a lot but is on casters so can get out of the way when needed.
Behind this is my scratch built cyclone with the vac on a shelf above the drawer cabinet.
There are hoses run to the table saw and my other shop Smith plus a hose that can reach any where in the shop for cleaning.

There’s a router table and my sanding table slide in this corner, plus the plainer all on casters s can be gotten to when needed.
Last is my main 1995 Shop Smith set up for mainly disk sanding of wheels but can do whats needed.

As you can see every thing is set up close so I don’t have to get up but can just roll my chair around to get er done.

I up dated my shop pictures since I moved two years ago and never got around to it, which is probably good as I’ve fiddled around with different setting for the whole time. LOL
