This maximizes the capabilities of each machine, but requires extra effort to get each machine ready for use.When I laid out my machinery in the space of a one-car garage, I took another approach.Instead of mobilizing everything, I strategically placed them in such a way that I could process material up to 5' long without moving anything.
This allowed me to work very efficiently most of the time.In my shop, there aren't many projects made with components over 5'; the only things I can think of are dining tables and beds, and I rarely work with sheet goods.
Machine layout optimized for efficiencyLike most woodworkers, I use a combination of hand-held and stationary machines.Material-processing machines in my workshop include an 8" jointer, 18" band...
