Update 18 March 20019

Well 6 years on and not much has changed on my workshop from the outside, still have no heating yet, hopefully later this year, just waiting for 45m2 of solar panels to be installed.

The inside is now useable, still no central dust & chip extraction, that wil be later this year/next year. The work shop doors have to be the next project.

I now have a second workshop dedicated to hand tool work, about 50m2 (540 sq Ft.) with heating

Woodworking in the round! That’s a really neat layout.

I’m sorry for the intrusion. It’s really nice. You must be a professional, and do it as a full time job. Brrrrr -22??? we feel really cold at +19ish

I like how organized you keep your shop. It looks very efficient and a pleasure to work in. That is key in any size of a shop. Thanks for showing us!

-- Happy woodworking!

Hi Tony,

I love your tablesaw set-up. This is a gorgeous shop space. It is no wonder you do such beautiful work. Just being able to work in such a nice shop would be incentive enough to get the adrenaline flowing every day.

Seriously you have a nice shop, some very nice equipment and I really like a separate finishing room. I would offer to sweep up around the shop just for the opportunity to work in there but the commute would be a little long. :)

thanks for sharing.

I like your shop, my ceilings are about the same height. I need to get a cyclone dust collector for mine but I don’t know of one that I could fit under 7’.

Hi Dustin

I looked at cyclones but was unable to get a DC system that fitted in my shop, that was large enough handle all the machines (2 at the same time) so a I used a 2-stage DC system located outside, to save space and reduce the noise and dust in the shop, I must blog this some time.
