Have you seen the photos of the big home shops that some guys post in woodworking forums and elsewhere? Wouldn't that be nice? Well, that's not my experience, nor is it most woodworkers experience. A while back, ShopNotes posted an article about small woodworking shop layouts, complete with floor plan and lots of advice, over at WoodNet.net.
It's a terrific article and one you'll find useful if your shop is squeezed into a space the size of a one-car garage or smaller.
And while you're there, sign up for the free weekly woodworking tips from Woodsmith magazine.
Being a woodworker is being part of something much bigger than just a guy in a shop. There's a world of woodworking design, art, and culture. I think that's as interesting as the working with wood itself.
