Wide View #1 The sander, jointer, drill press, and planer find homes in the far-left corner of the shop. The lockable cabinet stores drill bits and other accessories. The sander and planer bases were shop built.
Wide View #2 The shop vacuum, from its position in the right corner of the shop, collects dust from a run of clear-plastic pipe. With a mobile base, the bandsaw can be positioned anywhere in the shop. Above the heater is the enclosed exhaust fan. The compressor hose cannections are for spraying.
Wide View #3 Design editor Jim Downing, who headed the shop-concept team, says, "Like a 'now you see it, now you don't' magic trick, a woodworking shop appears in the garage after the vehicles move out. Fluorescent fixutres provide plenty of light, and the white paint on the ceiling and walls enhances it. Epoxy floor paint proves durable and resists grease. Electrical drop cords with twist-lock plugs supply power to machines. For air tools and vehicle care, there's a compressor hose on a ceiling reel."
