Workshop Information

Location
United States
Having just started woodworking about a year ago, I have a very small workshop; two small rooms. As a result I've had to find ways to conserve space and double up tools and storage. (When I say small, I mean the main room is 9×10 and smaller back room is 5×10.) Under the main bench you'll see a few drawers and a small TS I keep a dado blade on.

I have a HF dust collector in a closet I built in the back room (I've added a second stage and a canister filter to the standard setup and also put my air compressor in the closet to quiet it a bit. I also have a shop built air filtration system I made using plywood and an attic vent fan with two filters and two prefilters. There is also overhead wood storage in the back room.

You'll see a flip-top bench I made for my planer and jointer and my bench, a circular rotating bench for tool storage and table saw with router table. I use a vega fence and an incra miter, both of which I love.

In the back room you'll also see my HF lathe, which works like a champ. Anyway, it's small but I don't think there's a square inch of wasted space.

I like your shop. You have found ways to really utilize your space. Your TS postition really caught my eye. Putting the left side up against the wall is not an issue, if you use the right side of the saw. Nice!

Thanks Nighthawk…I would advise making it slightly larger if it would fit your space. This one (from a Shop Notes plan), has had more tools on it, but it feels cramped.
