A Layout Kit for Small ShopsModeling in two or three dimensions is a lot easier than moving around your heavy machinery to get a shop plan you like
Architect and hobbyist woodworker John Yurko offers tools, both high-tech and low, for developing a shop plan. This short article offers machine and accessory templates at a scale of 1/4 in. to the foot, which can be photocopied, cut out, and moved around on a grid. Alternatively, the templates can be downloaded from Yurko’s Web site. Or the planning can be done with a CAD program called Sketchup 4.0.
The PDF link for this article does not work.
i have found that numerous links dont work. Is there an archive section? I signed up just for this article
The PDF link is working on all of my systems here. What error are you getting?
16 MAR 2017 link worked for me
The PDF link works fine but the cad model link http://www.yda-online.com/shopmodels.htm does not. Any chance these cad models are still out there?
The web site address http://www.yda-online.com/shopmodels.htm does not work if you put in http://www.yda-online.com you can access the site but I can't fine the sketchup images.
The most important thing that the article says, is to accommodate the wood for infeed and outfeed. In addition how the wood gets in/out of the shop, (especially for basement setups).
I have a basement shop with the above in mind, and it has worked out very well over the last 15 years.
Now none of the above links appear to work. :-(
No. It would appear that Mr. Yurko has moved on in one way or another. On the bright side, if you are a SketchUp user there are many more examples of shop machines in the 3D Warehouse than there were when the article was written. Adding the infeed and outfeed areas is pretty simple.
