Moved more items out of the tin shed down back, into the shop. Have the cabinets hung, which I moved here from the old house. Started hanging stuff up on the pegboard. Need to purchase another piece and hang a few more boards. Maybe come up with something different for the clamps though.

But overall a good weekend. Looks like I need to paint the cabinets. And get started on building some benches. Thanks for reading.

I was confused for a bit. I missed the Shop Build 4 post. Last I saw you still hadn’t finished the sheet rock and now you’re painted, trimmed, and moving stuff in. Very nice work on the shop. I can’t wait to see some projects come out of it.

That shed is surely a castle in the making.

Your shop is looking great Eric. Ive moved my tools in and have come up against the ole Darn I should have built it bigger. I know that when I finish building benches and start putting things away it should look more organized. I’m building an out feed table for my TS and am planning six draws. The problem with drawers might be, ” um where did I put that marking gauge”. I suspect you’re enjoying your shop as much as I am mine.

Thanks, and yes it is going to be enjoyed. I plan on using the main bench as an out-feef table for the TS. I also plan on long benches for those long walls, shelves and drawers build in. If I get it right the table tops of the bench tools will be on the same plane.

Happy New Year.

I spent a loooong time preparing my garage for woodworking. Ran 220v and 110v lines everywhere, insulated and sound proofed the walls and ceiling (which are two layers – 5/8 plywood and 5/8 drywall), then added a heater/air conditioner. Also insulated the garage door. Worth it in the end. It’s always cozy and the neighbors don’t complain. Having your own shop is ….. beyond words.

One bit if advice: if you plan to run a centralized dust collection system, it would be worth developing a work flow diagram to know where you’ll place all your current and future machines. From there the dust collection system can be designed appropriately. I used Sketch up Free to determine all the components and lengths of ducting I’d need. Glad to see someone else doing the journey.

I do plan on a DC system. Have my thoughts in mind, as for equipment locations and the main runs. High chip producers on one side, TS in the middle at one end, under floor, and the low dust producers on the other wall. I have a dicated circuit in the loft to house the machine and I can place the container on the main floor. I have a separate circuit board in the loft for my compressor for the hard air lines.

But still the fun is just starting, and the final will be years of organization as this evolves.

Thanks for the comments.

Eric, Could you add a small weather proof enclosure on the outside of the new shed for the Dust Collection machine.

I have thought about that, not sure if that work out, I am up against the tree line. If there was more room under floor that might work, then run all ducts under the floor. I may vent outside though, providing I am not using heat or ac, but that is down the road.
