Shop with a View
Originally, Dave Owen's shop was going to be a three-stall garage and two-story apartment overlooking a lake. He kept the views but gave up on the apartment—instead building an enviable woodworking shop.
Dave ensured excellent workflow through the spacious six-sided shop by meticulously planning out the locations for all his major tools. Mounting many of them on casters or mobile bases further improved efficiency. Dave says, "I can cut 4×8' sheets of plywood, joint 8' lengths of lumber, and crosscut pieces to whatever size I need—all with ample space to move around."
