The space issue becomes even more complex if you keep wood and other supplies in your shop because that also needs storage areas. All of this space can be hard to come by if you’re working in a small wood shop.
If you have a small shop, you’re likely already doing what you can to conserve space. You buy new tools and equipment with the footprint in mind and may hold off on purchases for things that are too large to justify without a specific need. There’s only so much space you can save through restraint, though – you’re going to need storage. Luckily, wood shops are great places to add storage since you’ll be able to build some of the extra storage areas yourself.
