It has been good watching you build your shop addition and I know you gotta be anxious to use it as a shop.

Hey,

Nobody said “goodbye to the workbench.” See how compliant I am. LOL! So what is the current interior Length and width?

Are you adding more dust collection tubing?

Daylight and canned suggest you should see pretty well?

Home stretch? Do you have some boxes waiting to be made?

Thanks everyone

Haha Grizz.

Tom, I still have the piping to run yet, I’m holding that until the last, making sure I have all tools in their new locations, lighting is good and still have the miter stand and the bench to build, the exterior is 12’ x 24’ – the wall thickness on the inside, which would be around 4 3/8” per wall.

It looking really nice.

How do you like the new lights compared to what you had? I’m interested in the same lights but I wonder if they end up with more shadows than tube lighting would.

So, first things first: where’s the beer fridge?

Thanks Sander, Thomas and Richard, the LED’s are just as good as the tube lighting, only thing is and was a learning process for me is that you need the brightness to be 650 or above, if you go with new construction, cans and lighting the cost is a bit less than if you are replacing at current box fixtures, they make lights to fit the box but they are a bit more costly, you can figure ball park $35.00 – $40.00 per light, but they last almost forever and use half the electricity a tube does aside I understand that tubes are going away at some point.

Thomas, as much as it pains me to say this, I’m not much of a drinker so there’s hardly ever any beer at my house, I average around a 6 pack per year.

Tom, to answer your question about interior dimensions, it’s 11.67’ x 23.67’.

Whoa, man, you actually drink more than I do: it’s been 3 years since I last drank a beer (or anything else, for that matter). My average was like yours back then though.

Looks neat and well organized Randy. I can see some good projects coming out of there. I also have a pretty small shop and reorganizing has become a regular routine. It happens every time I buy a new machine or add benches, etc. and also when I start doing something different. I expect you are experiencing the same.

Might have to steal some of your layout. We now have the same dimensions, but I have a floor lathe from HF ( not used yet…grrr) in the space.Also a door to the enclosed kitty jail for the barn/shop cats.

I also have a lot of extra leftover material from, Garden/dust collector shed, and room addition, etc. in the shop. I often work on the floor….Now I’m not laughing.

Gotta go to Mankato to see clients.

Later

Wow,

Just thought about it. Your shop was small, but much more efficient. My chaos would be in chaos. LOL!

Tom no lathe but I do have a delta joiner that’s under the center workbench not shown in the photos, I went back out again this morning and changed things once again, I move the tablesaw back closer to the door and moved all of the smaller tools up closer to the cabinets along with the center workbench, I like it much better now.

I’ve had to many tools fail from HF, the only thing that I still have working great is the DC in which I have no complaints about but I’m done buying disposable tools, even Porter Cable is falling off the bandwagon.
