I designed this shop to fit in a sigle car garage or large shed. The lumber would be stored above in the rafters. Once chosen, the lumber would be brought down and sized with the miter saw, bandsaw, jointer and bench planer stored under the miter saw. Once to the right size the wood would then be taken to the woodworking bench to be finished and assembled with only hand tools. All hand tools, portable power tools, finishing supplies, etc. would be stored on the far wall either above or below the counter. Due to where I live, Michigan, I would need to install a electric heater and maybe air cleaner in the ceiling as well. NIce and simple with hand tools to due most of the work which is what I love. Thanks!
