It’s 3.6 x 2.7m to come in under the requirement for a permit, which is 10m2. Lucky we're metric, as 12' x 9' is too big!
Of course I ended up with a door where the offcuts bin is and two windows either side of a central panel on the north wall (bottom of plan) over the workbench. There’s no window in the west wall, so that’s all hand tool wall and small power tools above on a shelf. Drill press will go further towards the back and I don’t have a band saw yet, planning on building one of Matthias Wandel's ( woodgears.ca) plans. That won’t be a benchtop model! Would like to use it for resawing and milling as well, so it’ll go on a rolling stand against the east wall.
Downdraft sanding table is completely irrelevant given how wimpy my shop vac is and how much the table saw kicks out anyway. Table saw will go on a rolling stand (ragnbonebrown.com plan) and live under the bench that’s going on the west wall, with router mounted in the extension wing. This will all be 5mm higher than the workbench so I can use it as outfeed.
Mitre saw station will be ever so slightly right of where it is on the plans due to final stud placement. Hope that’s all clear as mud @Farside!
many thanks @Kiwifr33, clearly you have given this enough thought to have a scale plan. I find it encouraging you are not griping about space as my shed cannot be any bigger, possibly a tad smaller. I am also contemplating mounting tools on mobile stands so I can move them to an outside landing. I am thinking of adding solar PV panels and a couple of batteries to power the shed.
Thanks @Brad - do you have any advice on castors? The table saw will be around 30kg and bandsaw 40+, but I don’t want to break the bank. And in your experience are two locking castors enough?
My Kreg router table roughly 900 x 600 has 4 locking castors and it's easy to move. Stable with all 4 locked, with only 2 locked it will move if you push on the free end. They are expensive...
Assembly table much the same size with 2 fixed and 2 locking, not so easy to move. Stable as the Kreg and set me back $35 for the set.
New bench 2000 x 600, given it would be hard to move at the best of times I am going with 4 locking at $22 each.
Table saw is 35kg and has it's dedicated fold up stand with 2 wheels.
Mitre sax is 32kg and has a fold up stand with extending arms. Folding it up can be an experiance...
I don't have a bandsaw but I think it being a square base you could get away with 2 free and 2 locking castors. Table saw fixed and locking is the cheap option or for easier movement 4 locking.
