New member from Lancashire

Greetings fellow woodworking enthusiasts, just a quick line to introduce myself and ask for a little help. i am in the process of planning and building a workshop in my (fairly large) garage, and would appreciate any advise on layout, essential kit etc. i plan to concentrate on building my own storage racks, cabinets and workbenches. Any advise would be gratefully received as i am new to this area.

Greatings from Buffalo N.Y. USA and welcome to forum . The only advice I can give you is what I should of done before I placed my tools and workbenches in my shop is to cover my concrete floor with a wood floor. Concrete is hard on your legs & feet and cold in our climate. Welcome again

Layout usually works best for the type of projects you will be working on. The only space hog will be the table saw. Put it on a mobile base if you can and add an cabinet to or next to it for more surface space and storage.

Hi Johnep,
luckily we missed most of the rain, but they really suffered about thirty miles away from me.

Thanks very much for the advise Don I will be sure to take the warning about the cold floor on board, as we too have severely cold winters (and fairly crappy summers !!!!) Also thanks for the welcome. I apologise for the delay in responding, but I work away from home during the week and so I have only just read your reply.
