Ha, thanks! The dog will be a permanent shop fixture, so I have to plan on her taking up some space!

In that case you might want to reposition her away from the door to make getting materials in a little easier!

Not sure what kind of projects you like to do, but You may consider relocating your jointer along the 20’ wall parallel with the TS and using the 16’ wall near the door for incoming material storage. Personally, I find having the TS, jointer and either a radial arm or chop saw located near each other to be the most efficient workflow since I tend to use them together as sort of a work cell. In my shop the TS is in the middle as you have it, radial arm and chop saw along one wall next to the TS, Jointer along the other wall next to the TS. That way I can move easily among the three tools as I prep stock.
