Finally getting it together; it only took a year, but there were other priorities with the new house. A previous project post showed what it looked like a year ago. See stairs and mantle projects for a couple of those other priorities!

Got the cabinets finished and installed, clamps hung, everything out of the boxes. Still need to get the lathe assembled and a stand built for it, as well as doors for the closets.

Great environment; AC and heat which were missing in the previous shop. Have a sink (!!) that supports a coffee pot. Epoxy floor. 2 closets.

Wall mounted 20 amp outlets placed 4’ above floor and spaced every 4 feet. Plenty of light with 12 4000 lumen fixtures – 48,000 lumens !! Its bright!

Ready to make sawdust! (Since this one is in the finished basement, it will have to stay very clean, lest any dust be tracked out or escape)

Way too clean. Ya need to throw some sawdust around, at least in the corners. Looks like a kitchen.

Seriously, enjoy your new space.

Love my shop and it is not as spacious as yours. Mine is sort of heated and definitely not Air-conditioned… This will be a great creative environment.

Carey, where do you do your hand tool work? Nice tool cabinet (wall hung) with fine planes, but I don’t see a work-holding-type workbench in that space?

Come on man! Disgusting lack of clutter! Easy to find tools aren’t worth using.
