We are just putting the finishing touches to a new 24x30 garage that will be set up primarily as a wood shop. It still needs insulation. sheetrock and electrical service.

It would take less time to look at the plan if the location diagram was oriented the same as the photo. I have to share my walls with my camping gear, etc but every one of these plans assumes you have no other interests other than a wood shop. I have the water heater in my 3rd space too.

This plan is great for those who have sufficient room. Whatabout those of us who have very, very limited space?

My space saving tip, if you are able to work it is to put your table saw in front of a window. If running thin stalk it's an easy slide. Wider stalk requires a window with no fixed panels allowing the glass to be lifted out One drawback is location. I'm west coast so a forced coffee break sometimes happens.

The biggfest problem that I see with this plan is that there isn't any dimensions given such as how far is the t/s away from the end walls, how big is bench #2, etc etc etc. If someone could supply those measurements that would be great.

I have an 11-yr old house w/a 3 car garage. This single stall is 10' x 21' and this shop would only fit in the 2 stall portion. Nice shop however. Congrats.

You are WAY off in that being just one bay of a 3-car garage. A garage bay is normally only 10' wide, if that, and this just will not work in most garages.

If your like me you build a variety of projects different sizes and shapes. There is no one way layout that will fit even the most clever craftsman. I believe it is part of the tool manufactures responsiblity to get clever and design tools which can be used comfortably in anyones shop. I for one am tired of trying to design my shop around their tools. The more complex their tools, the more I appreciate hand tools and a typical bench.

I am researching heavy duty slides to house most of my tools (oscillating sander, 12" sander, chop saw, jig saw & router table) in drawers along one wall to reserve floor space for table saw, band saw & drill press. I figure the planer to be a infrequent tool that can store under my portable work bench and use on that work bench when needed. The duste collector will be housed outside in a tall cabinet and plumbed through the wall.

We have a one car garage. My shop is in the from part. So it is only 8x9.5. Mostly I work outside. The point is our 1 car garage is only 9.5 x 20. I'd love to have the space they mentioned...

Thanks for the suggestions. As is clear from the comments below, we all have different configurations to work in and around. I finally built my first shop after more than 25 years of working around everything else in my garage, carport, and/or sheds. I took all the best ideas from various of your articles and came up with solutions that fit my curcumstances. The result is a shop that meets my project needs in the space I have available. Please keep the ideas coming! RLD

I agree with the other comments. My 3rd stall shop is 10x22 and I stole every spare inch I could afford from the 2-car portion of the garage.

A couple comments. First, I have found that angling my table saw gives me more room for infeed and outfeed of large pieces in my cramped space. In fact, I often have to open the side door (to the outside) and run my infeed there. Second, I would never wall off a bay. What do you do when you need the space for a big project? Carry the pieces out the roll-up door and back into another bay? Otherwise, very nice and helpful article.

I do have an 8x20 space as work shop and find that it is tight squeezing all my mobile-based tools against one wall and still finding room for a bench and storage. Instead of the more powerful cyclone, I have a shop-vac with dust deputy which is distributed via 2.5in tubes. Not as powerful, but picks up dust off the tools well during clean-up.

"We walled off one 15x22' bay" - You're kidding - 15' is one third of a three car garage? Its the whole 2 car garage for Jbi7459 above. Nice shop, but advertised with some editorial license.
