Blackie, you have a nice looking shop. Having a stand alone shop is the way to go, in my opinion. And it looks like you get quite a bit of natural light in there with all the windows in your shop. Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

And let me welcome you to LJs as well. It is good to have you on board as a member of the group.

Hey Scott thanks

Yes it’s lit up pretty good I’m in the process of adding a couple more florescent’s.

I pretty much have everything in it but a lathe, no room for that. Other items not show in the pictures are a planer, a joiner, and then small hand tools such as biscuit joiner, hand saws etc…

It’s a really nice shop, Blackie. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Thanks a bunch dbhost,

It’s taken even a better and different turn since these pics were taking, actually I used your awesome idea and storied all of my bench top tools in a central rack, I’ve moved the workbench with drawers over to the adjoining wall freeing up even more space, I now have the band saw sitting where the router used to be, I prob should update my pics, the shop actually looks even bigger inside now. I still plan on building a new out feed/ worktable replacing the one just in front of the table saw and making it so that it rolls over the top of the table saw, I purchased the plans from www.woodmagazine.com

Thanks Roger, yes it’s the HF, I normally don’t purchase any type of power equipment from HF but after reading the reviews on this DC, so far doing great!

I have had the same collector for quite a few years now. I am happy with it and the price I paid way back, was 129 if I remember right. I haven’t “piped” out my shop just yet. I’ve been thinking about it. I’ve got some hoses laying here and there, which works, and has been workin out for me. thnx for your input

That’s great to hear Roger, though it did have me worried last week it all of a sudden lost suction, hardly any at all so after tearing into the piping finding nothing I went to the main unit outside in the add on and had to pull the large Y connector off and found that paper was the problem it was blocking the air flow, there’s a metal cross section in side that it was up against, so made note to self to be mindful of what I suck up in there. LOL

Being that I have it outside the shop I really see no need for a cyclone or any type of catcher and use the saw dust for my wood spalting and around the flower beds, besides I have no room for an extra trash can out there anyway. LOL

I am having a blast with this band saw, I have several more bandsaw box ideas that will be coming for display soon, as a matter of fact one of the boxes just sold this morning at a place dad and I have breakfast at, I took a few with me and one of the waitress’s purchased one of them, broke a blade yesterday and that box sell made up for the replacement. :)

awesome! nothing better than word of mouth. do you have a preference for bandsaw blades? if not, then give Timberwolf a try. go to their webpage, and sign up for an email newsletter. a lot of times (about twice a year i think) they will do a buy 3 get 1 free deal. their prices arent’ bad either. I’d like to know how you go about spalting? appreciate your tips. your spalted projects are gr8! thnx
