The wood comes in the door. it must be turned 90 deg. to be jointed and planed. it must be turned another 90 deg. to be run through the table saw…Turning those boards 90 deg. again and again is a pain. the job is much easier if you are not required to do it.

Thanks for the input. I do plan to bury the ducting for the machines that aren’t on the wall, so that will make it much easier to maneuver. I’ve found there are pros and cons to each arrangement I try and there is never going to be a perfect one. I don’t see any way to rearrange the tools that would eliminate the need to turn, backtrack, walk around, etc… If you have any specific suggestions with my layout, I’m listening :)

Anyone have any input about the size of the finishing room? Or should I even have a dedicated room at all; Maybe I should have a ventilation fan and a curtain?
