Here's a little tour of my shop. It's a 24 x 24 two car garage with 9' ceilings. The wife still parks her car on her half so I have most things on mobile bases. She is very tolerant though and I leave it in shop mode most of the time.
Since I'm finished up with Christmas projects I spent most of the day yesterday cleaning. It's usually a cluttered mess.
The first two pictures are of the lumber storage rack area. I have a triton rack for the long pieces. It's worked out very well. I put it high on the wall so I could get sheet goods and shorts underneath. I need to come up with a better way to store shorts.
Here's a couple shots of the shop dogs. The basset is Daisy and the boxer is Joe. Joe doesn't like to have his picture taken.
The next shot is working down the wall. I have a shelving unit used for storing small turning blanks. I got a deal a couple of years ago on small blanks. The metal cabinet is for storing adhesives and finishes. I put the planer on one of the old ridgid mobile bases. It works well. Next to the cabinet is a work table I made from a couple of recycled science lab cabinets with a reused counter top. You can also see the shop throne which was my grandmothers electric chair. Somehow I ended up "storing" it for my mom after my grandmother passed a few years ago. The batteries are shot and it's a hernia waiting to happen to lift. It is comfortable and I use it as my thinking chair. I also have a mitersaw on a ridgid base. I have a redneck dust collector attached to the saw. If I'm using it a lot I'll attach it to the DC.
To the right of the lumber rack is a set of shop cabinets I built last year. I kept watching carigslist for used cabinets someone had taken out of their kitchen, but they always wanted WAY to much for used cabs. I built them on the cheap, I've got around 200 total including the lam top. I'll get around to painting the MDF fronts one day. Next to that is my grinding station on another metal storage cabinet. My router table usually lives next to the metal cabinet, but I have a gas heater that I use during the winter so I pull out the router table.
I started making shaker boxes this year. This is what I came up with to try and organize all the supplies needed.
Here's a shot of my router table and bandsaw. The router table is based on norm's plans. I put it on casters so I can move it around.
