Shop Specs

  • Location: Stoddard, Wisconsin, United States
  • Size: 1080sq. ft.
  • Type: Basement
  • Focus: General
  • Heating/Cooling: No need to cool it, just have to keep it warm in the winter

My shop is not pretty but it is funcitonal.  It measures 33 x 33 and is laid out in 4 working aisles with two sections off of the end.  One end section is for the table saw and the other for the build up bench.  I can rip boards up to 14 feet long but I try not to purchase anything over 8 feet long.  I have enough width in the table saw area to split full sheets of plywood.  The entire shop is plumbed for dust control and compressor lines.  Each work area has more than ample lighting.  The only pieces not in the main shop is a 22 inch drum sander and the air compressor set up that sit outside of the door in the attached garage.

Well, I would have to agree, the pictures don't help make your basement shop look very pretty, but that's OK by me. Keeps the wife out of the way. ha.

Maybe someday, you could throw up some drywall, paint it white, and spray the ceiling. That would brighten it up a bit. No doubt, it's probably "on the list".

But,I like your no nonsense approach to function to maximize production. Good use of space, working around those metal columns. I wish I had 14 ft. cutting capacity without moving things.

A thumbs up making do with what cha got! I like it.
