Ah...figured it out...here's the other 2 photos By the way, the shop is 24' x 20' with a 6' section divider to allow for 2 additional storage rooms, so the shop itself is 18' x 20'.  Still a HUGE change from my little 177 sq. ft. shop, I used to have in the old home.

Anyone have any ideas on what layout I should do?  Everything is mobile except the workbench & lathe.  Ideas would be welcome.  I hope to keep the center area clear so that when I need the tablesaw, I can just wheel it in the middle and have room to cut bigger pieces of plywood or whatever.  I'm still trying to figure out the best way to lay it out.  OH, and anyone have plans for a turning tool holder, that I can easily mount to the wall or below the lathe? 

Thanks,

...Bert

Bert, I used the Grizzly Shop planner tool to help me.  You have to play around with it a little bit and re-size things here and there, but it's a big help.  Here's a link:

You may also want to consider a work table for the center of the shop.  I have one raised to be the same exact height as my table saw so it can act as an extension table if needed.

   Bert  I would go use the Grizzly shop planner.  Mostly because it's fun.  I've added an extra bay to my shop then put new tools in.  Started over  made a place for the dog and they even have a dog to put there.

Nice.  I made my first real step towards finally getting my shop how I want it.  I borrowed a trailer yesterday and piled it with junk as high as it would take it and I took it to the dump and said goodbye.  Maybe we need a mens support group called "We CAN live without 96,384 PVC fittings"

How big is your building?  Mine is 24' X 24" with an 18 foot door on one side.  And sadly up until yesterday, had room only for one person.  (But that's changed now)

Of course you know in about a week a need will arise for that 96,383rd fitting.  Grin  Still, chances are it'd take less time to go to the store and buy one than it would to sort though them all to find the one you need. Wink

I don't think it's possible to find the part you already have until you spend hours looking for it, vist two or three stores and pay too much when you finally do buy it.  LOL

And as soon as you've put it to use you'll look over and see it sitting on the bench or shelf in plain view.  Happens to me all the time.

Sorry I didn't answer you there Charlie, it's been a while since I came on the WR site, since I posted the shop pics.  Anyway, my shop is 24' x 20', and has a 9' overhead door.

I like the fact that your turning area is NOT CONNECTED to the house. 

I do all that I can think of to keep the dust out of the house (coveralls that I do not wear inside, hat, remove shoes before going in, and I thoroughly vacuum off before entering the house) but it somehow seems to find its way from the garage to the house  Angry.

This fact is not un-noticed, nor appreciated by my beautiful bride  smiley=slap.gif.

I think a separate building would help....
