« Part 12: Band Saw: Fence Upgrade Part 13 of Shop Upgrades series Part 14: Shop Reorganinzation continued »

Band Saw and Lath area coming together nicely. Still have more track wall to install and some overhead shelves.

Temporarily moved all the sanders next to biscuit and dowel cutting tools while I brainstorm the sanding/downdraft table I’ll be building this summer.

Hand tool workbench cleaning up nice, but think I’ll be moving chisels and planes to under homemade workbench with twin screw tail vice.

Chemicals and safety equipment cabinets have stayed in place, but I’ve added a few more first aid kits close by to other workstations.

Automotive area cleaning up well also. I now have a placer to hang up floor creepers.

Cleaned off table saw out-feed table (moved it all to assembly bench to sort and put away ;-) ). Now you can see old dust collector, oscillating sander, and planner.

Hopefully this weekend I’ll finish up sorting, electrical work and can start organizing the wood storage section—right now its nothing more than a pile of wood leaning against the wall. :-(

Looks great BK. A place for everything and everything in it’s place helps to keep me sane LOL

How do you like the overhead dust collector/guard for your TS? Any issues? Have you made any customizations to it?

Overhead DC moderately effective as is under table saw collection. Suspect that is because I present its hooked up to a 1hp Rigid DC—reason why I’m building out a new HF / SDD dusk collection system
