Workshop Information

Location
Norway
A basement with just over 6 foot ceilings is not the most ideal space but with careful planning and several remodellings I've managed to get a shop I'm now reasonably happy with. The total floor area is about 320 sq ft spread over 3 rooms arranged in a T-shape. The entrance room is at the base of the T and the two largest, adjoining rooms form the top of the T.
In the first room I've got my chop saw, compressor, chip extractor, dust extractor and a large bench I use for assembly.
The largest of the other rooms is the main machine room where I have my table saw, jointer/planer combo, router table, drill press, disc sander and hand tool sharpening station. All my power tools sit on shelves built into the walls.
My band saw stands just inside the inner room which is otherwise devoted to hand tools and storage. My 8 ½ feet long workbench is along one wall whilst the opposite wall is filled with storage cupboards. My most used hand tools sit on an open shelf unit above the workbench.

Main tools :-
Table saw : Record Power TS250RS
Jointer/planer : Mortensens RPH330 (13" jointer-planer combo).
Band saw : Inca 10"
SCMS saw : DW700
Router table : Triton TR001 in self built table (of the usual design !)
Drill press : Rexon 750W
Disc sander : Axminster 12"
Chip extraction : Axminster ADE2200 through 6-5-4" ducting.
Dust extraction : Beam central vacuum unit through 2-1/2" ducting.
Power tools by : Metabo, Dewalt, Bosch, Makita, AEG, Elu.
Hand tools by : Veritas, Lie Nielsen, Quansheng and many others.

Future plans :-
14" band saw.
"Proper" workbench with twin-screw vise.
Paint the floor !

Great shop - I also struggle with low ceilings and an awkward arrangement in my basement. I really like your arrangement.
