Workshop Information

Location
United States
I have a 2 car garage that is now fully dedicated to my woodworking shop. It's always evolving as I acquire new tools or upgrade existing ones. My garage door faces north, but being in North Texas, it still gets pretty hot in the summer months. Luckily, winters are pretty mild and only gets too cold to work a few days per year. I'm planning to insulate my garage door and hopefully that will help.

In the center of the shop is my table saw. The outfeed table is multi-functional as a work bench, assembly table and downdraft table.

On the west wall is my band saw, miter saw, router table, dust collector and wood rack.

On the east wall is my planer, jointer and my disk and spindle sanders.

On the back wall is my work bench with storage cabinets and my drill press.

Your shop is very nice, I am jealous of having a dedicated space. You have obviously spent a fair amount of time building cabinets and dedicated storage…..well done!!

One more thing…..I can't help myself…..I have been a Professional Photographer for 35+ years…the reason your photos have a "foggy" look to them, is you have a smear on your lens….give it a good cleaning and you will have much clearer photos…...sorry…old habits die hard!! Congrats on a work space to die for!!!

Actually, the original pics were taken with my phone camera which has a scratch on the lens. I retook the pictures with my SLR camera and they are much better. I also do a lot of photography, but don't always have the best camera with me.

Love the simple, but at least from the pictures, effective dust control system. The black wye's on the dust control system, where did you get them?

The white PVC I got from Home Depot. It's the lighter and cheaper irrigation pipe, not standard PVC. Everything else I got from Amazon. You can however, buy the same parts from Rockler or Woodcraft if you have one close to you.

Hickory Creek, I know where that is. I graduated from Wolfe City High School in '75, never thought I would see a Hickory Creek workshop while poking around here. I moved to Nawlins' in 83' and now have a little woodshop in my two car garage in Metairie, LA. I do like you dust collection setup, may use some of your plans.
