This is my third shop that I’ve setup so I’ve learned a few things that do and don’t work with a shop workflow and efficiency. Here are 5 tips that you may not already utilize in your shop.

    My tip. Long term items tend to automatically turn into hoarded items when they are out of sight too long. So sometimes we tend to keep them just visible to not forget we have them. Solution: Photograph, catalogue and keep it handy on your computer!

    Additional tip. Keeping stuff to get rid off in one spot is obvious. What I do to top that off is I keep notes of potential candidates to be auctioned or given away. It weirdly overlaps with my list of tools I keep juuuuust in case ;)

    Mark Twain's quote "several years ago"
    wen it comes to their own culture Americans are a shame !…

    If you pay attention to the height that you build carts, stands, work tables, etc… you can roll them under other items such as a bench, miter saw stand, drill press and other equipment.

    do you ever park a car in the garage?

    Nice shop setup! I'll be starting on my garage soon. I think I'm going to go with a 4'×4' version of the paulk workbench and something similar to the miter station you have going. do you think birch plywood is overkill for a miter station?

    Great tips. I noticed or didn't notice a router station. Do you only use your router in the portable mode?

    I noticed the Festool dust extractor & cyclone in the vertical rig; is this the original build project you did? Too bad about the Wings tomorrow night- Wild is coming to D-troit!

    Good, practical tips. I believe in continuous improvement.. I've seen your loyalty to the D pro teams, but I've always wondered, are you a Wolve or a Sparty, or no dog in the fight?

    when I moved into my present workshop I already had a lot of stuff I needed to put someplace. So the closer I could get to the ideal right off the bat the better off I was going to be in the long run.The idea of moving a lot of my tools around continuously just doesn't appeal to me.

    You are a huge inspiration Jay. I'm wanting to take my woodworking hobby and start making it profitable. Thanks for everything you do. Keep up the good work!

    Love Mark Twain. Wise man and we have a lot to learn from him.

    What sort of material is your tablesaw top made out of? The black shiny stuff.

    You are getting good at the weatherman point at the object where it is on the screen move! Also I love the dead space tip. I never thought of that.
