I have one concern about that lot of substances stored in the corner of picture 2, they are very near to the scooter...
Yeah, I see your point Alexis. I am in the process or organising and have yet to pick up a locker I was given to stored most of it in.

Since we're talking sheds, this is mine. The pictures are a little older and the old table saw is now replaced by the Laguna. The handiest feature is the adjustable wire shelving and the matching plastic tubs, labeled on the end with the contents. I used to have an L shaped counter on both sides of the door and the ends, but most all of that is gone now, but the picture of the small orange parts drawers is still there. That counter is littered with stuff I can't find a place for.

It's 12x24 feet, wired with an AC and a couple of heaters. 3 20 amp circuits on the walls, above 4 feet, color coded so I don't overload anything. The overall shot is of the old Delta saw, but it's pretty much the same. I still have the outfeed table, and most all the tools shown, but some were replaced with much newer, better tools. The entire back wall (to the right in the overall pix, is covered with quarter inch peg board. Lots of small items, saws, straight edges, squares, clamps of all kinds, staplers and staples, etc. I forget I have them unless I see these items up there. There is another 24 inch wide panel of pegboard for small hand tools. Since these were taken, I've enclosed all the stands with doors to keep the sawdust down and to store tools.

In the back corner is the AC and under that a HF tool chest that holds tools, blades, wrenches and other small stuff, including long drill bit sets.

I can't find a picture of it, but on the end the overall picture is taken from, and built over the window area, is a series of shelves, spaced pretty close and fairly shallow. It is opposite the wire shelves, with the workbench in the middle. The workbench is only 20 inches wide (60 inches long), but I more than doubled that with a fold down extension Can't find the pix, but I have never folded it down.

One of the last pictures shows the current setup on the front inside wall, Rikon band saw, sander, sliding miter and all have shop built stands with doors and shelves inside. The one under the sliding miter will eventually have drawers installed. Presently it holds all the 18v tools other than the drills.

@Cherryville Chuck Dang! Forgot to correct the sideways pix. Would one of the moderators mind uprighting them for me?

When we moved out here, we'd sold a condo near the Orange County Coast and had some extra cash, so we bought the shed then. Wish we'd popped for a little more for the 16x24. Happy to have it, but the Laguna saw is much wider so there's not a lot of room to get around it when the sliding miter is extended. But I'm thinking of building a "porch" and rolling the miter saw out there when I need it. Only use it occasionally.

That pretty well describes it. The counter under the small drawer storage for small items is where the real mess is. Sometimes I just can't figure out where things are supposed to live.

In that picture of the tools against the window, way back in the corner is where the port is that carries the sawdust outside. There are several shelves in that corner to store jigs. The picture below is of the DC enclosure with both doors open. Just shortened all the connectors and eliminated most of the curves to increase air flow. You can see the Wynn filter and beside that, the 20x20 filtered port that returns air to the shop. Thinking of putting a fan in the vent to help the air along. It would turn on with the DC.

There's also a storage area under the outfeed table for the pancake compressor. I put it up on a low stand so I could reach under and empty the tank when not in use.

I have a few big pieces still in their shipping boxes that I'm just not going to use, and they eat a lot of floor space. I should try to sell them, I guess.

Not many people looked at my string on putting my DC unit outside in a small breezeway between two sheds. Enclosed it, put a floor in it, tight fitting doors on each end and a return opening that returns double filtered air back into the shop. Floor is linoleum so air stays in the chamber, thus saving the cooled or heated air in the shop. Really COLD winters and HOT summers here on the edge of the Mojave Desert.
