well approx 6 years of making this 25’x45’ area is my woodshop and how it is coming. as with any shop so much is still being improved. all of my big equipment is 220 except for the milling machine which is 3 phase. my dust collection is 6” main sch-40 pvc pipe. and yes it is grounded. :-) i like the pvc for being quiet compared to just regular metal duct work. i also like how it looks so much more pleasing to the eye. as u can see the whole shop is surrounded by peg board. The peg board is backed with 2” of foam and both are fastned in 4’x8’ sections. The foam gives me a solid base to help support the pegboard when wheight is applied and allows to never leave anything permanent on my walls. i will keep things updated so please keep an eye out for my updated postings of the shop.

and please forgive me for some pics bigger than others, im still getting used to posting pictures.

Very organized! Lots of big tools. What do you build? I just purchased the Grizzly 8” jointer with the spiral head and being new to jointers I am having trouble getting a flat surface. I think I have to work on my technique.

This is a great looking shop designed for big projects.

It could also serve as a Grizzly showroom.

Xtreme, I can tell that you have a great shop and I love the milling machine. One of those can really come in handy in a woodworking shop for making jigs and fixtures. However, I have a gentle criticism – I can’t hardly see those small pictures so it’s hard for me to tell very much about it in detail. Your pictures should be at least 450 pixels wide, IMHO. The picture size that you have used is more appropriate for thumbnails. Your shop looks like it might be a showplace. You should change the picture size so everyone can tell how great it is. Other wise everything is great. I’m sorry about these old year old eyes of mine. :)

All of that big equipment… then a tiny little compresser. Thought that was funny.

xtreme, How do you keep your shop so clean? You are very good at organizing I have to say!! . Looks great.
Do you have 3 phase in your shop or do you use a converter?
