Workshop Information

Location
United States
My shop is only 10X20 with a 7'2" headroom. I think that I make good use of every square inch. My dust collector is in a shed outside with the duct work running down the outside and thru the wall (220V 3 hp Oneida). My air filter is built in to the attic space between 24" rafters with a strong fan, 2 furnace filters and a timer switch. One corner is even lower with plywood storage up and I have racks on 10' of one wall and 2' of an other for lumber storage. I built the work bench to allow storage of my router table, planer, spindle sander, and drum sander on trays with casters underneath. My table saw, band saw, and drill press are on wheels. My chop saw is mounted to the wall lining up wilh the work bench and built in cabinets for support, bolted to a folding support to get it out of the way. I would like to get a big table saw but I think it will be too hard to roll around in my tight shop, it will have to wait till I get a bigger shop (say 20X30). I'm always looking for cool new tools, project ideas, and new building skills, LumberJocks is a great source.

Rob, this is a nice looking shop that you have put together. It appears to be well organized and you certainly have done well with the space that you have. Putting the dust collector outside the shop helps with both the noise and your space utilization.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Rob - you are packing alot of punch in a small space! I started out small as well, just a tad over 7×15 space so it's nice to see how others deal with the constraints. Here the video if you have 9 minutes to kill.

Happy building!

Hey Rob - I had to come back and take another look - you have very good space utilization skills…..there are advantages of having a small shop, like everything is within 2 or 3 steps…......

Also - it looks like a TV in there - good to have priorities!! Tiny shop but managed to squeeze in the TV! Is that a Sony Dust-A-Tron?

You have made a great job of organising your tools and machinery in your shop. Mine is not much bigger at 14×23 although, like you I have shoe horned a lot in there.

Thanks for showing.
