It’s not much, but it’s all mine. As I have stated on the home page, this all started as a garage cleaning. Then I decided that I needed a bench and cabinet…a place for tools…a place for my bench-top and miter saws…so not knowing what I didn’t know, I just built them. Once I got this far, I figured that I might as well build other things…such are the workings of a great mind. Of course, if I am ever fortunate enough to have a “real” wood working shop, I hope to do a much better job of it.

I built the air filtration unit to save my lungs and my marriage. It houses a dual squirrel-cage blower attached to a 1 hp electric motor sandwiched between three filters (two in-take and one exhaust). The timer allows me to set it to run for a period of time after I am done for the day.

Nice shop. I like all the shop furniture. I really need some more storage and organization in my own shop. The timer on the filter is a nice touch.

Great looking shop. I like the air filter. I need one like that. If only I can find a good used motor and squirel cage.

You have a nice shop space in which to work. You have organized it well and I like the cabinets that you added to the shop. They look good. I have had a change of heart since being involved with this group with regards to shop furniture. Before I simply focused on functionality rather than form. But I have come to the realization that you can have both in a shop environment. Your cabinets certainly not only are functional but also look good as well.

Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting with you.
