Welcome to
The New Shop is 24' x 32', I hope you enjoy these New Shop page and that you may be able to use some of these ideas into your shop as well.
These are pictures inside The New Saw Horse Workshop.
Let's start out with the office area I made so I can keep-up with emails and projects plans I have via the internet, as well as a TV and VCR to watch / review live woodworking shows and those I have taped..
This is just outside the office and just to the left of the sliding door. You can see the door to the office, my refridgerator, sink, coffe pot, towel dispenser, trash can and cabinet to the left. To the right is a wall of base cabinets and wall cabinets I use for storage.
This is another angle of the wall of base cabinets and wall cabinets I use for storage.
This pic shows the wall to the right of the cabints, it shows my large vise, ginder and disc/belt sander combo, as well as my clamps. In the lower right corner is my mortiser and small drill press, in the upper right corner is a 24" fan I hung from the ceiling for air circulation during the HOT summers here in Texas.
This pic shows my work benches and the 1/2 of the back wall where I installed slat wall to hang jigs, tools and other misc. items. It also shows my tool box, lathe (one of these days I'm gonna learn how to turn something) and my osillating sander.
This is the other 1/2 of the back wall where I installed slat wall to hang jigs, tools and other misc. items. It also shows my joiner, planer, band saw, large drill press and scroll saw.
Turning the back right corner you find my dust collector for my joiner and planer, a shop vac that controls the dust collection for my band saw, large drill press, scroll saw, osillating sander, router table and my miter saw station. I also hung another one of those 24" fans.
Following the same wall we come to my miter saw station, a cabinet I built to hold my fishing gear, and turning that corner is my lumber storage with racks on the wall and sheet good leaning against the wall. I will be building a sheet goods holding system that will be on wheels that will allow easy access to all the sheet goods.
Here is a wide shot of the previous wall that includes my table saw set-up. The sliding door providing the sunlight coming in from the right of the picture.
This shot shows the sliding door opening with my beautiful wife standing in the doorway, along with my pick-up backed-up to the doorway demonstrating why I built the shop up as high as I did. I can load or unload extremely easily with the shop floor at this height. When the tailgate is down it fits perfectly in the doorway and just a few inches above the shop floor.
