I’ve got a 10 by 13 foot room in my basement that I use for my shop. I used 12 gauge wire and 20 amp circuits. I installed 2 outlets in the ceiling for my plug in fluorescent lights and my Jet air cleaner.

It’s a little cramped in order to fit all of the tools a serious woodworker wants but it’s possible. These are the tools I have cramed in there.
Table saw – Jet contractors with cast iron extensions
Router – Bosch plunge router and bosch router table with fixed base in it.
Bandsaw – Rikon 14inch on mobil base (sooo heavy)
Jointer – Ridgid 6 inch
Planer – Ridgid 12 inch
Drum Sander – Jet 16 inch
Mitre saw – Ridgid 10 inch (stays in garage to break down long boards)
Joiner – Porter Cable (don’t use it much at all. Not sure I like biscuit construction)
Orbital sander – Bosch
Block plane – Veritas
Belt Sander – Ryobi
Spindle Sander – n/a
Router Boss (http://picasaweb.google.com/rickafriesen/RouterBoss?authkey=Gv1sRgCLPB68yyg_TjvgE&feat=directlink)

Yes. Put up pics. I’m always looking for ideas too. I have an L shaped shop in my barn because of other uses so I’m always looking. Good start on tools. If you put everything on wheels, you’ll be more flexible and be able to stuff more things in.

If you don’t mind a third call for pictures I would like to add my call as well. Visual tours of other shops are always well received.

Rick, that is a very nice shop that you have. I love the window because natural light is so wonderful when you want it and you have a lot of nice tools and equipment. It’s a very cozy shop.

yes, I love the natural light I get in there. I could use an extra couple feet in shop width and another 4 in length at least. But I think I’ve got it pretty good just having a shop inside with a window. Or just to have a shop at all.

Rick, this is a nice looking shop that you have. With all the cool tools that you have in your shop I was expecting it to be a lot more crowded that it actually appears to be. This speaks well for your ability to organize your work space. And, of course, the natural light is a big bonus in my book as well.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks guys. I kept hisitating to put up pictures cause it’s always messy in some way or another. It only stays very clean and organized for about 1 hour. Right before I start a new project I clean the whole shop up from the last project and immediately start messing it up again.
