Deb, you'll have to set the fridge outside. You don't really need one in Canada, do you?
It looks like the jointer is the only thing missing in the pics. Nice equipted shop. Thanks for the pictures.

How about the jointer goes behind the spindle sander, tucked against the wall?
Nice sized shop. Wish I could get my wife's car kicked out of mine.

It appears that you have at least one of everything. I didn't see anything missing. Great looking shop, now mess it up!

Hi Dep hahahahaha

Where are you going to put a jointer ????, looks like the black metal rack for wood cut offs is going out the door or going to get hung from the ceiling ,,that's what I had to do when I run out of floor space..it works ok but a bit hard to get to the top shelf

You can see it hanging in the picture below,upper right hand side..

I thought a fridge was a staple in every shop? It is definetly needed in the summer months. No heat in the winter and no AC in the summer!
I will squeeze that jointer in somewhere.
I got the steel shelving just before I decided to "convert" the garage into the shop. It's a demon to move. Took 5 of us to get it in there.
As for neatness, sheesh I have a heck of a time moving around in there. I can never find a clean surface to lay something down. To me it seems very cluttered. But my computer desk is much the same so I guess it must be a "me" thing.
Without a dust collection system I make it a habit to vacuum every night when I am done in there. Mainly so I am not tracking sawdust into the house and making more work for myself..lol.
I think Bobj3 should get the blue ribbon for neatness. WOW look at that floorspace! I'm envious!

Looks good, Deb.

You have much more open floor space than I do, though. When I moved to New Mexico, I shoehorned a 3-car garage shop into a 1 1/2-car space. Then, my dad died, and I added his tools to the mix. My neighbor woodworker friend calls my shop "tightly engineered".

I believe one of the corollaries to Murphy's Law speaks to the issue of horizontal surfaces collecting new stuff.
