Jim's main floor is 40 x 50 ft. You are looking at the front room on the main floor. There are 5 rooms on the main floor ( not counting the restroom).
This is the front room on the ground floor. You will find the Fadal, a 10" and a 12" table saw, a 12"radial arm saw, and a Bridgeport milling machine to name a few.
Wood storage on a "loft" on the main floor. The Bridgeport is on the lower right.
The air compressor, air drier, vacuum pump, and home made phase converter are on the main floor.
The "middle" room houses the thickness sander, two shapers, three bandsaws, two jointers, a vertical and horizontal belt sander, a thickness planer,and lots of routers!
The two shapers and various templates are used mainly for making braces and a number of operations on the necks.
In the left foreground you can see a neck carving machine that Jim used to carve necks before the Fadal took over this duty
Jim's biggest ( and oldest ) bandsaw was "rescued" and rebuilt many years ago. It now handles most of the heavier re-sawing jobs.

Jim in the spray room. The guitar is held by black pipe mounted to the floor by a flange bearing so it can rotate as needed. Jim thanks Tom Anderson for this great idea!
This room is next to the spray booth. The UV oven in the background is used to cure the finish with UV light. This room is also where the pore filling takes place.
This is on the upper floor. It is a 30 x 40 ft. room where most of assembly takes place. The laser is up here as well as a band saw and a number of vertical belt sanders and a State spindle sander.
