In all my videos it’s my goal to help you Maximize Your Shop! In this video I give 9x universal tips to help you improve your workflow and maximize your usable shop space for both small and large shops
This is a summary of the tips:
1. Mobility is key.
2. Keep material storage close to where they will enter the shop whenever possible.
3. Place machines used to break down and mill close to material storage (miter saw, track saw, and milling machines)
4. Group by function/process (Milling / Shaping) (Fine cut / Sanding)
5. Align work flows so that they are parallel
6. Align “dead-space”, non usable parts of machines (drill press column, sides of planer/jointer, rear of miter saw, etc.)
7. Keep assembly tables & areas central.
8. Storage is an essential part of woodworking, The better organized you are, the easier it is to return tools to their “homes” when a project is over.
9. Remember to “think 3-D”. Each machine has a different ideal working height.
