    I have several shops. Actually, I have 5 shops. I have the garage shop where the big stuff is like the 3 phase drill press, horizontal band saw, shaper and welding gear. In the basement I have four shops, machine shop, grinding/sanding shop, electronics shop and computer room/library.

    In the basement year-round machine shop is where my lathe and milling machine are. It is definitely full. There isn't space for anything more. I really like it because if I trip I don't fall down.

    This is the basement machine shop from opposite angles.





    In the second pic there is an opening in the unfinished wall that connects to the small electronics shop. The grinding shop is behind and to the right of me in the second pic with a wall between the two shops and the computer shop is a couple of steps to the right past the wall mounted storage bins. The basement shops are all just a few steps from each other as the are arranged in a square connected at a common center.

    Computer shop:



    I'm not showing a pic of the electronics shop or garage shop right now. Too confusing.

    This summer I plan to set up a small foundry outside under a shed roof about 75 feet from the garage.

        I treat it like a submarine shop, keep everything in it's place and only enough room to move...

                Sniveler! I can't even see my Harley let alone take a picture of it! I know it's in there somewhere. The only empty floor space in my double garage is the path between light switches. On the way is my lathe/mill combo or I'd not get any turning done at all. And now I need to make room for a TIG welder. I used to laugh at my dad's garage - so incredibly cluttered with stuff. I recall wondering how he could possibly have so many things in work at the same time. Well, now I know!

                  I don't have room for light switches,I use the breakers for turning on the lights.

                    Evan:
                    Your shed reminds me of the inside of my garage. The other day I had to cut some stock on the horizontal band saw . It only gets used once in a blue moon. Only a few minutes to make a couple of cuts but it felt like it took an hour to get to it.
                    My teen aged son puts things away for me. He does not understand the concept of a walkway or path though the stuff. So had to dig out a path to get to the saw.

                      OK...I took care of all that extra room I had...drug two more dirtbikes in there.
                      Guess my point was...I used to built race car chassis, truck decks, boat racks etc. in this shop. Not anymore!
