Having a really nice workshop seems to be a dream for lots of folks, but workshop design can sometimes be tricky.
It includes plans for dedicated woodworking shops, as well as for shops in shared space, such as garages and basements.
If you're a Visio user, the Wood Shop Visio page has woodworking templates and stencils for laying out a home woodworking shop. Something fun - I've also seen a surge of people buying the SWMBO T-shirts that we recently designed, as well as related items like SWMBO mugs.
The shop, 50' by 30', will be built on a hillside, and there will be ground-level entrances to each level. In fact, if you're planning your shop layout, there's a lot to be learned from this discussion thread at Saw Mill Creek. In planning your shop, Charlie recommends seriously considering wall hanging tool cabinets with doors deep enough to store chisels etc.
Note how his layout of each side (below) let you see not just the floor plan but also the side view of every wall.
It must be getting a good reception as it's the bestseller from Amazon's woodworking section at the moment.
This shop plan, available in Visio format, is a well-thought-out layout for an expansive 42' x 30' shop. This shop plan, available in Visio format, features dust collection, sanding station, planer, table saw with extension and router, bandsaw, and more. This shop plan, available in Visio format, has layered diagrams for walls, electrical, cabinets, and equipment.
Most of the woodwork carried out in this 10x16 shop area is cabinets and sectional built-ins. What none of them realized was I had designed the layout using a 3D model and input from several really good wood workers. In designing his shop, Larry got great advice from the fine woodworkers at Saw Mill Creek, which I highly recommend as a forum for information and advice about all things woodworking.
To quote Charlie, one side is the "clean, quiet area" - a place for contemplation, layout, assembly and finishing.
For most people the first obstacle is having a space large enough, which is capable of supporting a shop full of power tools.
By using a three-dimensional model I was able to design several options before I ever pounded a single nail. Very well equipped, this is a serious shop, with tools, shelving and workbenches in abundance. The right half of the shop is The Space of Dust and Noise - where large, expensive pieces of exotic woods are converted to valueless, hard to dispose of sawdust, chips and scraps.
