This is my basement workshop is long enough at 40 ft, long but only 11 1/2 ft wide is to narrow.
I have to thin it out organize it so it flows and throw out what don’t need.
If anyone knows of web sites, or something how a shop should be organized like in books shows how a shop should be set up from when wood comes in the door.
Any idea’s l sure could use need to make good lumber storage for up to 8 – 10 ft long boards and a plan for a scrap and small pcs bin only have a 6 ft 11 inch ceiling height so is hard.

Jim, you have a nice shop in which to work. It looks like you have made the most of the space available to you and I like the way you have added lumber storage overhead. Having windows in your shop is also a bonus in my book since they will admit some natural light.

You have a nice set of tools as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

what i did for my chopsaw is i made it removable and its fence is inline with the radial arm saw…
the V-Drum sander that I’m waiting to get here (hopefully this week) will be driven from the table saw motor,
ill build a stand right from my table saw table ,, take off the vbelt and hook it to the sander…since i cant use both at the same time :)

by the way hopefully you’ll tidy up the overhead wires.. (hazard)
