My workshop is 13 feet wide and 21 feet deep, with a 4×6 entry alcove, basicaly a one car garage. It is a single car attached to a three car garage, and I set it up as an enclosed shop. The first picture is of the entry door from the other garage. I have a powermatic lathe, a grizzly tablesaw, rikon bandsaw, shop fox mortiser, de walt 12 inch sliding miter saw, delta jointer and jet drum sander all crammed in there. Things are on rollers to move in and out and I have the other garage to move things into, store wood, etc. I started out making pens so you can see a bench set up with drawers with all of my pen kits, my press, and a rack to hold the blanks after they have been glued. The pegboard above the other bench holds some chisels, hammers, saws and some planes that I plan to restore. You can see that in the shelves above I have numerous toy trucks, mostly Tonkas, which I also restore. I am getting ready to get rid of a lot of those to free up some space. With a full time job I have to pick one of several hobbies to concentrate on! You will see next to my buffing station is a router table that I designed and made, I hated the paint job I did so my kids get to put stickers on it when they get some. Thanks for looking!

This is a good looking shop that you have put together. It is well organized and mobilizing your power tools does help a great deal with space utilization. The windows are also a plus in my book as well and it looks like they will let in quite a bit of natural light.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

great shop! Well organized use of the space. The cool kids were the ones with the Tonka trucks…
