So there I was, trying to work out the plans for the shed, and things were just not working as well as I expected, and I put it down to the fact the components I was working with on the Grizzly Planner were not to the same size (scaled) as I needed them to be.
But then I tried a major rearrangement, putting the tablesaw down the back of the proposed shed, and couldn’t get it to fit. Shouldn’t I have a metre clearance? So I checked my dimensions. Then checked them again. And I finally got it. The shed was drawn completely the wrong size. The problem with working in feet & inches, is I don’t know what 96″ looks like (or whatever). It is not intuitive to me, having primarily worked in metric.
So I then redrew the shed to the right size, and then tried placing in the tools. Everything looked completely wrong – all the tools have just too much room. How can that be? Checked. Double checked. I think it is right. WHOA! Awesome!
This wasn’t a serious effort at tool layout – couldn’t get over how much room there was. This fits all the tools, and still space for more that I hadn’t included in the initial planning from the previous shed. And there is still the mezzanine 🙂
Some really interesting progress on the shed front – hope to have an update around the end of the week (or there abouts).
