Back in 2007, when I was trying to place tools in my 11’ X 24’ shop ex-garage, I was stumped. My wife finally said, “Just put them in there, and see how the flow goes.”

So instead of drawing out plans, I put the tools where I thought they would be best, ran power in the ceiling, and went. I’ve been through about four changes over the last ten years that you might call major, all based on my woodworking style, my actual work that I do, and eliminating steps and reaches as I work.

Now overall, at least 60-70% of the tools I use on a regular basis are within three or four steps of where I stand. It is not an optimal shop by any means, but it plays out fine for me and what I do.

I did take into consideration long boards, and how to cut them when I first laid it out.
