Let’s try something different here, shall we? I’ve got an ongoing problem in my shop, it’s too @#$%#% SMALL! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif It’s basically a one car detached garage, and it wouldn’t even hold a full size car. One of my biggest problems is not enough shelf space so things wind up piled around in the floor. I’m sure you guys have noticed the mess in my pics. Anyway, I’m working on getting this thing into some semblance of order. I may never be able to get my rig inside to work on it, but I will get it so I have at least some room to work… Below you will see a diagram of my proposed shop layout along with a rolling rack for steel storage. Everything is pretty much to scale. They are rather big, but the file size is not too huge so it shouldn’t cause too much trouble. On the shop: The orange block at the top are floor to ceiling shelves. The brown block below is the rolling steel storage racks. The top is 1” plywood to form a work surface, but primarily to use as a feed table for the band saw and chop saw. The two things on the top left are rolling tables with my band saw on one, and the chop saw plus grinder on the other. Both of these will “dock” at the end of the steel storage so that the feed table can be used. That black “x” thing is my bender showing the lever arm sweep. Most of the rest should be pretty obvious. I’ll also be adding a number of outlets in strategic locations. On the steel storage racks: This thing is going to completely block access to the lower shelves against the wall. I’ll put “rarely used, long term” stuff down there. The rack can be pulled out if needed. I’m torn between casters or just rollers. Roller will make it easy to just pull in and out. Casters tend to fight themselves (6 would be required) and can cause tipping and such, but of course they allow more flexible adjustments. The top “shelf” has extra supports along it’s length and expanded metal to support full lengths of small stuff like 1” x 0.125 strap and such, things that will sag without support. The other “shelves” are really just 1” x 0.125 bars that support more rigid stock like 1.75 x 0.125 round roll bar stock. The very bottom “leg” will be used for heavy stuff like 2 x 2 x 0.250 square. This should make it more stable, and the bottom legs (2 x 3 x 0.125) should have plenty of strength to support the weight. So, any brilliant insights?
