My shop is framed in, inside the garage. 60 square feet total. Annoyingly small…
Tools inside the shop: Rigid 14″ Bandsaw, Delta 12.5″ lathe, Delta Belt/disc sander, Rigid 6″ grinder/buffer, Rigid shop vac, Grizzly 2×72 belt grinder, 1×30 belt grinder, router table, Onieda Dust Deputy, Delta 12″ drill press, small compressor, plus an array of handtools, sanders, etc… Needless to say it’s a little tight in there.
My tablesaw and Performax drum sander have to go outside.
Mostly I am a woodturner. I also make jewelry/trinket boxes, small furniture, and custom knives. See more at http://www.chrisndesigns.com
Bandsaw with builtin cabinets behind
Lathe and drill press, storage underneath
Router table/workbench on left, storage rack on right
Belt grinder with storage for bench top tools underneath

jverreult, yes that is a Grizzly riser block. The only problem with using that is the longer shaft for the upper guide block assembly is too small in diameter to work. So I just left the shorter one on. It's works just fine.
Great shop and I do sympathize with the size as my shop has similar issues...you work with what you have.
I noticed the Rigid 14" bandsaw and the green riser block. Are you using the Grizzly riser block kit? Just curious because I have got one but haven't yet installed it (the Rigid one was just too bloody expensive and is exactly the same except for the green paint).
Time to move the car outside and bring your table-saw in. Good dust collection is really really important A ambient dust collector in your shop would be healthy for the lungs. Good woodworking can be done in a small shop.
Thats a nice shop.
