Small backyard shop – E Bergh
My shop is in two adjacent small backyard sheds, one 8×10, the other 10×14, with the common wall opened up. I have added a pair of large Sliding Doors across the front Wall to ease cutting plywood on the T. Saw and another on the backwall to allow ripping lumber. A Dust collector is housed under an overhang outside. It’s tight but I do build kitchen cabinets, etc. Mild weather helps! Jointer under the T.Saw is on wheels, a Planer under the Radial Arm Saw lifts onto sawhorses on the deck outside. I can also wheel out the Bandsaw onto the deck if needed.
Rough Floor Plan here: Open in new window
Looking through the front of the shop and out the back sliding door. The Radial Arm Saw shares it's outfeed table with the 220v Table Saw. Downdraft sanding table on left, 6" Jointer on wheels under saw on right. Plywood stored on edge on far right, Lumber above.
14" Bandsaw to left by doorway on wheels, buffer w/low-speed grinder on wheels beside it. Beyond is 8' x 10' shed w/ bench area, 6 x 48 belt sander (and clamps around corner on right.)
Bench area (behind Bandsaw) Delta mini lathe w/ extended base, low speed grinder, elderly Sprungner Radial arm drill press, Air Compressor below. Loft above for storage of "stuff" w/ just enough headroom to work at lathe.
My old bench, made from Alder 25+ years ago. Use laptop w/Cutlist Pro software, PCDraft. Window on right provides ventilation. Overhead there is a Dust filter box, also an electric catalytic heater.
Outside storage of "shorts" and dust collector. Tarp/trees do good job keeping rain off. Dust collector runs automatically when saws power up.
