The heart of a woodshop is the workbench. I made mine over 20 years ago; the top was constructed using scrap pieces of 8/4 oak from an engineer friend. It has served me well.
The table saw is also the heart of a shop. When I moved to Las Vegas, I sold my old Delta Unisaw and invested in the Saw Stop with sliding table.
The weather here is gorgeous, albeit hot in the summer. It's nice to be able to sit at the edge of the fountain and think about what's next.
Plenty of room to work on bigger pieces.
A nice heavy lathe is useful for bowls, spindles, pens, etc. This one is my pride and joy.
Another view of the lathe area. THe lathe has a built-in vacuum chuck that relies on a venturi effect, hence the air line connection.
You can never have too many clamps.
Lots of storage for tools and supplies such as pen making kits. THe dust collector is a monster, with a built in HEPA filter canister to help keep the air clean.

Compressed air is distributed around the shop via copper piping routed at the top of the walls. There are multiple "drops", one in each corner of the shop plus one by the lathe.
