15’ x 25’ in my basement. Some space in the middle and stuff up the walls and worked in between the joists

Now that is making good us of your space!

Do you wheel your power tools into the middle when you run them? Like the table saw?

I too have every square in of wall space filled up. Us guys with small shops have to get creative, right?

These photos bring back memories of my last shop, looked almost identical, but I think you have more floor space, and a ton more lumber that I could store.

It doesn’t look like there is much “daylight” to your basement. So unless you have a secret door to the exterior hidden behind that lumber I cant imaging what a chore it was getting that Powermatic down a flight of stairs.

Are you venting your DC through an exterior wall?

Hi Jeff, I’ve got a 12×24 inch window above my wall bench in the 2nd pic and I still usually still need to have a light on. The powermatic was still in the box so it wasn’t too bad but I don’t look for the day I have to move the table saw and my butcher block bench when I move. It’s 2’ x 6’ and 3” thick. (how much does hernia surgery cost?) Shame on me but I don’t have any exhaust. I watch the supper fine dust poof off the sack and pretend I don’t see it. I’m soon getting a better unit with cyclone and a proper filter unit. I’m glad Plano molding is close to me, I can get shelves at the seconds cheap shop. I’ll put up some more pics when I get my projects done in a few weeks.
