Workshop Information

United States
I'm retired now and really enjoying my time learning woodworking and building small things for my grandkids. I try to improve my skills with each project I do. My challenge is to incorporate a new skill with each thing I build. Right now my interest is string inlay and making it as narrow as I can.

Don I hope you enjoy your retirement. Tell me about your dust hood on that chop saw, is that a commercially available hood. I dont need one, just never saw one like that and others may have interest. Enjoy

Don, this looks like you have put together a pretty nice looking shop. The window is a big plus in my book as well since it appears that you get quite a bit of natural light in there. You also have a nice set of tools to play with.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Real nice shop. I'm captivated by your chopsaw setup, too. Why didn't you just let it eject into the back of your convertible and mulch the median as you drive? ;)

Shelly, the cabinets became mine when the wife had me redo the bathroom. I took the doors off because they got in the way. It was either that or look at myself all day.

Nice shop I see you are a DeWalt fan, so am I to a degree,

The thing that interested me that I need is, the plastic hood you have on your sliding chop saw. Do you recommend I get one? I so, where did you get it? Or what is the brand name? So I can search for one. At the moment I have a cobbled together plastic tote that is cracked and due for replacement.

Exelec, what kind of saw do you have? As we all know the mitersaw is the biggest dust maker in the shop. I have done a lot of research and have a few ideas. I am currently in the process of doing the following. I am going to continue using the Rousseau 4550 Down Drafter but I am going to hang heavy duty plastic curtains on each side of the saw to prevent blowback similar to this video from youtube. I also have the Clearvue cyclone.
