Looks like the nicest shop and tools, I have ever seen. Great dust collection, very cool. Green with envy.

Holy shiny floor batman! I would have to spill something on them to feel comfortable working in there. Like just walk in and dump my coffee on the floor. Or maybe knock over some Danish oil or BLO…I mean a shop isnt complete with out a finishing stain on the floor.

Seriously though that shop is awesome. Some day before I’m dead id like to have a space like that to work in

I went with a Grizzly G0442 5HP Cyclone. I plan to post some photos later of the DC shed build. I decided to go with the Griz over an Oneida because I’ve had good luck with the green tools over the years and Because 5HP for less than and Oneida’s 3HP. I’d rather be over powered than under for a 24’x36’ shop. The main trunk is 8” spiral pipe and the branch lines are 6”.

Trust me after 3 years there are dingers and spills on the epoxy floor, They are just not as noticeable in the photos. I almost cried when I dropped a tool and took out the first chunk of epoxy. Now there are maybe over a dozen. I have developed a clean as you go strategy and I find it doesn’t take any more time plus it’s a lot more pleasurable working in a clean environment. This isn’t my first workshop but I’m planning on it being probably my last unless I win the lottery. I’m about 5 years away from retirement so “this is the one”! When I moved from MN to TN I spent almost 4 years planing and saving for this new workshop. I had sold most of my stationary tools before moving because I didn’t want to pay to store them and besides… upgrades.

Now that the DC is installed the mess just gets magically whisked away. If I have to do something like hand route MDF I try to take that outside. I couldn’t for my new outfeed table because of the size and I was vacuuming up MDF dust that got all over the shop it seemed like forever.

Hi Mike,

The footprint is 24’x36’ with a 10-12 pitch roof and a full attic. I have the Sketchup drawing I provided my contractor in my Web site downloads that I put there in April 2017. It has my original machine layout plan and thinking on dust collection. The machines I purchased and the DC plan evolved and I have an updated drawing that I need to make a final tweak on before uploading. The updated plan has the DC shed plan added. I just need to move one machine location I made while installing my spiral pipe.

Here is the 4/23/2017 Sketchup file that has 50 layers so you can deconstruct by unchecking layers.
Workshop Plan

If you don’t already have Sketchup you can download the free Sketchup Make 2017 from Here:

Aww thanks Mike. That’s a high complement indeed. Honestly I’m haven’t been terribly prolific lately. I have been so focused on getting my shop just like I want it I’ve only made one thing worthy of being called furniture in the past year. It took me 8 months of weekends and some vacation to build my DC shed, install the new cyclone and all of the spiral pipe and fittings. I’ll post some past projects soon and some new ones hopefully in a few months.

Updating from an earlier comment that is no longer editable, here is a link to my current shop Sketchup drawing. It’s big… 216MB. It takes a while for Sketchup to open it. It has my current tool and DC layout in it in 65 layers.

Wow! Super shop! I’m a little envious. Only thing I don’t see is a large open space for staging material or building large projects (like a set of kitchen cabinets) but perhaps you don’t do that sort of projects. I’m sure it suits your needs well since you planned it for so long. Thanks for sharing.
