I’m new to Lumberjocks but I am enjoying the site for ideas and the forums, although I have yet top post.

My new shop. Total size 24×40. The Shop itself is 24×30. The back room, wood storage is 10×24.

Built one long table in sections along the west wall, embedded the Dewalt planer and use the Tops as the in feed and out feed. Also added a Radial Arm saw build in using the table tops as an in and out feed.

The previous owner had an exhaust fan in the wall which I made into a small spray booth.

yeah that’s one problem using a phone,so now I shoot all mine on a slr and never have any problems.sideways pics really piss a lot of people off here,including me-lol.

ps-i read your statement and you didn’t like portable equipment,but I have two garages side by side and me and the wife both park inside due to the fact I have everything in my shop on wheels including all benches.i can set up and be working in 5 minutes! take a look at my shop,mobilty is the way to go.even if I had the room id go mobile just for the fact that a shop is always evolving and that makes it so easy to change things around.

Nice Shop Pottz!!

Your portable is fantastic! Mine was no where close to that. All metal portable tables, mini dust collector, etc. I’m also a Motircycle enthusiast so I tried to to make it all work then decided I’d rather have the space to woodwork. Fortunatley from the move I ended up with a separate shop from the house so the wife still has her garage. I totally understand the ever evolving shop. I keep moving stuff around to try and find the right fit and material movement.

Love all the cabinetry you did in your shop!

Very nice shop! Thank you for sharing. I really like your spray/finish area as well – what type of fans are you using for that? Vented to the outside or re-circulated?

Thanks HighPointWW.
I’m using a wall vented fan to the outside. It works good with my HVLP sprayer, but not as good with an aresol can. This was installed as a regular vent fan by the previous owner. I think I’m going to install one with a better Cfm rating. But I’m still pleased on how it does work currently.
