Well, maybe not a castle....but a shack!!!

Here's mine. A 16x20 carport with a 10x12 shed in the back. Dirt has been recently carpeted...keeps the dust down. Ain't much, but it is the best I have ever had. Future plans for a concrete floor. The Road King hasn't complained at all. Maybe she likes it.

It'll be more effort to "step" it gradually instead of in, say, two or three big steps, but it will be worth it. And likely easier to keep the siding of the building above grade, too.

This should have been one more step here:

Since I like to lurk and was tired of there not being any recent updates, here's the garage of the house I am closing on next week. Undersized 2 car garage at 16.25'x18.75' (plus nook for water heater), but it's significantly bigger than anywhere else in city limits that wasn't crazy expensive.

Looks like it's the perfect size for a bike

Well it's going to be a 2 bike garage and woodworking shop combo. Car is staying outside permanently.

It's still a big work in progress, but here's the current state of my idea.



Still need to add upper storage cabinets, and refine some more storage ideas.

Here's the plan for the Tablesaw outfeed support. There is an insert that can be moved so that the planer and spindle sander can utilize the outfeed table:



Also, the general purpose workbench bottom rolls out and will be a work table for the motorcycle:

Great idea for the roll out work table...seen a few different variations, but I think that could be the most useful.

That looks really cool! The roll out bike table is neat.

One thing I'd add, if possible put that outfeed table on casters. It's so handy to have a mobile bench/table that you can work right around.

Cheers
Clint

I was originally thinking of a flip-top stand as I had one of those in my place back on the east coast, but I decided this would be more useful as it allowed the table to be an outfeed table for anything I put on.

Software is Sketchup. It's free. It was a google program, but they sold it off to Trimble. It's no Solidworks, but it does a decent job. There's a large warehouse of models that people have already done that makes your job much easier.

Outfeed table and table saw will be on casters/mobile base. I just didn't add those because I got lazy.

Nice drawing and ideas!

Re the outfeed table...

Instead of a table, I have a set of conveyer rollers that attach to the saw and the wall opposite the saw -- put them in when you need them, take them out when you don't. Works well for me and takes far less floor space than a table would.

Here's a pic of the rollers -- not mine, but you get the idea:

Right. I chose the table though because it offers storage capacity, plus it will function as the router table, planer outfeed table, spindle sander outfeed table, and it will be used as an assembly table.

Current plan is to have the top be made out of melamine or phenolic plywood to provide a slick surface and have it resist glue/finishes. It takes up a good bit of floor space, but as I only own 1 car that will only be inside when it needs work, it's something I can live with.

Once I move in, I'm going to be looking more closely as to whether or not I can fit some storage above the garage door. It's got a low ceiling height, but if I can at least fit the underbed storage bins, that will be worth it.

The main focus is going to be woodworking for now. I will be building all the furniture for the new house to replace the crappy hand me downs/ikea furniture that I have from being a broke college student.
