  1. even though i dont make fine woodworking things, im 13 and i can only use 1 very small part of my garage and have to wheel everything out to my front lawn to use. I still make shitty ramps though! haha

  2. First of all, thanks for an inspirational video about making the most of limited space. I intend to set up a small shop soon and will use these principals. One thing you did not mention that I will likely do is integrate a router table in with an assembly table/outfeet table. My plan is to roll it down below the surface of the table when not in use. Thanks again for the video.

  3. Thank you so much for your video, my garage is exactly the same size as yours including height. So I’m very interested in how your workshop is laid out. I bought a SawStop table saw which upon reflection is too big for my little shed. Keep up the great work, and thanks for the great videos

  4. Nice shop, i have a similar one and what i hate about it is that: anytime i need something i need to move other 3 things out of the way, i just wish to have a shop with direct access to all the stuff, that will be easy 🙂

  5. Well done making the best of the space you have. I have a celler, thats about 1/4 the size of your shop. But I'm always working to make it work better. And make it all the way around more functional. Thanks for the video. Gives me a few good ideas.

  6. I am moving from what I considered my small 19 x12 foot garage workshop to an 8 x 8 foot shed. Feeling sorry for myself. Thanks for reminding me a small workshop is better than no workshop.

  7. Nice shop. I’ve worked in professional wood shop close to 50 years in my family’s wood business and others and I found for me you will never have too much room. So being resourceful,as you have had to be, will always be key in how efficient, productive, and enjoyable the shop is. A guy just can’t hardly too organized. My bandsaw is on casters also. We cut pipe saddles for a pipeline company out of 10 by 10 Doug for so we actually spin the saw through the timber. Appreciate your video.

  8. Ok thumbs up just for the metric conversion. I do have a suggestion for your shop, where the planer slides in, add some rub rails to guide the cart through the cutout.

  9. Thanks mate – my shop is 5mx2.5m so anything that shows efficient use of space is very welcome. I’m especially interested in your wood storage.
