Plan The Right Kind Of Layout For Your Woodworking Workshop

Aug 17, 2007
When you are looking at the workshop layout for woodworking each wood worker will be faced with a unique set of challenges in order to build one that is right for them. Firstly they will need to decide where it is going to be located. Will it be in the basement, the garage or will it have its own dedicated building? Certainly the decision on where it is located is probably the most important decision that a wood worker will need to make with regard to their workshop. Once this has been decided they can move on to the next stage.

There are a number of different things that need to be considered when planning the layout of your woodworking workshop and this includes lighting, where the electrical tools are to be located, where your tools will be stored and how any dust will be collected.

Through this article we will provide some guidelines, which can help you to decide on the best layout possible for your woodworking workshop. Plus by ensuring that you have developed a great layout for your workshop you will stop yourself from spending years in an uncomfortable as well as poorly organized space that you are going to be using on a regular basis. However, below we will look at two of the most important ones.

1. Lighting
This is one of the biggest considerations you need to look at when designing a layout for your woodworking workshop. You will need to consider what type of lighting that you will need, is there any natural light available and would you be better to use fluorescent lighting instead of incandescent in the workshop? Yet even if you do a wide variety of lighting sources in order to ensure that your workshop is well light it is also a good idea to include some lighting to each workstation.

2. Placement of the Machines
When beginning to design your workshop layout for woodworking it is important that you decide exactly where all your basic machinery is to be placed. What you need to remember is that you will need a clearance area around the machines in case you have to work with large pieces of wood. Also look at a way of setting up the placement of the machines so that you do not have to spend your time running from one machine to another because they are spread wide apart around the workshop. Plus you need to look at their location so that they are close to all the power supplies that they need, as you do not want to end up having loads of electrical wires running across the workshop floor, which can be a major hazard.

Plan your woodworking shop with care and it will take care of your needs for many years to come.
