Looking through front sliding doors over tablesaw and out the rear sliding door. To the left is a shopmade downdraft sanding table, under the saw on the right is a scrap wood bin and the jointer, on wheels. Plywood panels, stored on edge lean against the wall to the right, lumber in the rack above.
Looking into the shop towards the left, (there were two sheds attached together) is the bench area. The bandsaw has since been moved inside and around to the right to allow more room to swing plywood on the Tablesaw. The buffer is below saw table height. Behind the buffer there is now a large horizontal belt sander connected to the dust collector.
The left side of the bench area... a small Delta Midi-Lathe and an old Sprugner Radial Arm Drill Press in the corner. Above them is a low loft for storage. Next to the drill press, and under the end of the bench is my portable air compressor, which is plumbed into the shop w/ flex tubing.
Outside the shop is the dust collector which services the Tablesaw and sander, plus can be connected via flex hose to my jointer and portable planer. The saw automatically turns it on, the sander has a remote switch. Storage out there too for large shorts. It is NEVER this empty!. Northern California is pretty mild... a roof and tarp suffice.

Shop Specs

  • Location: Castro Valley, California, USA
  • Size: 192sq. ft.
  • Type: Detached
  • Focus: Cabinetry
  • Heating/Cooling: Fans, 2 ceiling catalytic heaters

The front of the shed has two large 6' wide sliding doors that slide to one side opening up the majority of the front of the shop. Behind the Table Saw another large sliding door opens up the back wall as well, so I can easily swing large panels around on the saw and rip long boards. Between the workbench and the tablesaw area is now a large horizontal belt sander, connected to the dust collector outside. More lumber storage for shorts is out there too under a cover. Plywood is stored on the long edge between the tablesaw and wall under the lumber rack. Things are tight, but amazingly it does work. Storing finished work is the big issue.
