Hi all, Right now my shop is a 7' x 7' nook in the corner of an unfinished basement that's also used for storage. This is a problem because a) it's tiny, and b) even with me being careful with tools and dust collection, everything in storage gets a slow buildup of dust on it. So, I'm going to flip flop the basement: move my shop to the other end, and build a wall to create a separate room. This will give me a spot that's roughly 7' x 16'. This may sound claustrophobic for some of you but it will be a giant cavern compared to what I'm used to! With this in mind, I'm hoping to gather ideas you've all found useful for shop layout specifically for building instruments. Much of the reading material I can find about shop layout is aimed at more traditional woodworking (cabinets and furniture) which I don't think applies well for us. I'm thinking about putting my current work bench at one narrow end, and using that for hand tools, assembly, etc. Then, building a new workbench in the other narrow end, and using it for power tools, with storage under the bench for the tools (routers, tabletop drill press, sanders). I'll put a dust collector next to this bench. Finally, long narrow shelves along the long wall(s) for wood and project storage. I'd love to have the table saw inside but it's not clear to me if it would fit in the space I'll have available. I'd love to see how you all have your shops laid out, or hear any thoughts on the subject!
