My workshop is my 2 car garage about 22 ft square. I have a 16ft workbench mounted to the wall with a Dewalt 10 inch radial arm saw built into the middle of the bench.

I really enjoy shop pictures and your shop is the same size as yours, 22'x22'. But could you re-post the pictures in a larger size so we can really see your shop. The pictures you have posted now come out really small.
Thanks,
John

Bob, you have a nice shop space and it appears as if you have organized it well. I can well understand why the jointer is the "pride of your shop". Going for an 8" model is the way to go. I have a 6" Powermatic and wish I had opted for an 8" one. I like the tablesaw set up as well. It is nice to have the space to keep the old workbench and get some use out of it. That is a wonderful new workbench too by the way.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Bob:

Your workbench is absolutely beaiutiful. My "cabinet makers" bench, while not nearly as nice as yours, has proven to be indespensible.

I lived in Fort Myers for 35 years, My shopsmith and I were limited to just a little over 1/2 of a "tight" two car garage.
