Building the Shop

Framing the Shop
I was going through some of my early pictures and came across several photgraphs taken while I was building my shop. The foot print of the building is 30'x 50'. The ceiling height is 10'. My first 'shop' was in the basement of a small town house. Everything had to fit up a small stair-case or slide out through a small back window. I swore to never again build stackable book cases without being able to fully assemble them in a future shop. The foot print of the building was based on having semi-seperate bench and machine spaces. I also allowed for the ability to handle long 16 foot boards when laying out the location of my shop machinery. For the most part my early assumptions about how work would flow through the shop have borne out.
