Right now the w.s. is one big ole pile of wok and not much shop. I’m going to be working on getting it whipped into shape over the snowy months. I need to patch some drywall and start making cabinets. I’ve got a layout that I think that I can work with. Now that I have a new TS, I have a height for base cabinets (some double as out feed tables.) Just need to get a few other projects out of the way and it’s off to the races!

Chunk, your shop has a lot of potential. Having a window in there is a since it admits natural light to your shop. I like the sled that you have built for your planer. I thought about building one of those, especially when I have been frustrated with the way my jointer was performing. But simply have not gotten around to it. It is a good idea though.

You are in the exciting part of setting up shop. The space is wide open and you can put whatever cabinetry and shop fixtures that you want to in there. Keep us posted on the updates that you do to the shop. These are interesting to follow.

Thanks for the comments. The window also opens so I get a nice fresh supply of air. I love windows in a shop. Thanks God for walk out basements! Actually the bottom of that window is about 6” above grade. That’s where the yard starts to fall away.

It’s funny because I had a layout all figured out until it all changed once I started reading about Dust Collectors. Then I start reading about the Thien’s Baffle mod to dust collectors and starting hearing some positives about, dare I say it, Harbor Freight Dust Collectors. Now I’m no fan of HF, and I’m usually the first on that will take the mickey out of you for even suggesting a HF. But I got to say that the HF dust collector with Thien’s Baffle and the Wynn filter is a pretty slick setup, oh and the $139.99 coupon for the DC didn’t hurt any either.

So needless to say, the shop layout has changed from originally planned but that’s what it’s all about!

Okay NOW I need to go home and see if my DC is still in my shop!

As far as shop layout changing. Yeah that is sort of the way it goes…

Glad you are happy with the HF DC / Wynn / Thien combo. Very hard to beat bang for the buck wise…

Your shop is looking great. Thanks for sharing your shop and all of your shop projects. I also like what you did with the table saw blade guard.
I hope all that dust in the DC bag is before you added the Thien Baffle.
Thanks
