Wood Shop Layout

Wood shop layout seems to be a bit of a misnomer. As a woodworker, all we want to do is build great projects!

One of my most favorite sayings, although it gives me a shutter each time I say it, “How You Do Anything Is How You Do Anything”.

If that’s true…applying that logic to our shops…if its not organized and clean, we’re screwed!

I’m not suggesting less efficient shops result in terrible and ugly projects, however I’m noting the process through which a project is built, and its final product, could have been completed for efficiently.

Personally, I can attest to enjoying a wood working project…any project for that matter…when the area around me is comfortable and efficient.

Last week, I posted many items related to planning a shop that’s efficient and well planned.

Based on interest in those shared videos, you’re looking for ideas, tools and suggestions.

While all of our shops have many items that are standard, the footprint of our shops is not typical.

To learn more about shop plans and layout, here’s a list of books and sites to help:
