Yes, it’s a great blessing to have. The building is 60’x40’, with what is currently a 20’x40’ guest suite (which my wife and I lived in for 3 years before building the house), and the 20×40 above it finished out as storage and play area. My plans are to turn the bedroom in the quest quarters (about 20×12) into a finishing room.

Nice shop. How does that hood setup for your mitre saw work for you?

The hood works fair for the saw; and very well for the Rigid sander, capturing almost all of the fine sanding dust. If you look close, you can see a row of holes at the top of the back, and a slot at the base of the back. I think I need to close off some of the holes at the top in order to increase the suction at the base where the larger particles fall.

WOW! What a great shop. Love the lighting around the miter saw and the nice job you did with your dust collector

Thanks for all the nice comments. I have a small hobby farm that the tractor is used for. That’s its normal parking spot, but it’s moved outside when I have large projects (e.g. cabinets). It does come in handy for hauling out scraps to the burn pile; I just dump the scrap bins in the front bucket and head out :).

Great shop, is it tough keeping it warm? I just put a lid on mine because I couldnt keep it warm with the open ceiling.

Thanks Cary. Heating is a major challenge because of the very high roof line (the area above the tractor is two stories high), and I haven’t come up with a way that won’t break the bank. But the winters here in central Texas are relatively mild, so there are not too many days that it’s too cold to work in the shop.
