This is my 20×32ft shop that I built in 2012. We treat this like just another room in the house, and my wife even comes out to the shop to watch movies on date night, (no kidding).

One of my friends who is also a woodworker thinks my 55” TV is a sin to have in the shop, totally defeats the purpose he said, but from August to February, I am in my shop all weekend with my wood, tools, and Football, and he’s sitting at a sports bar…......so who’s crazy now!

I am slowly replacing all the temporary cabinets I built when I first moved in with the nicer ones I have been posting. I always wanted a shop like you see in movies like Sherlock Holmes, The Time Machine etc… Thats why I build what I build, I like all those interesting mechanical and scientific instruments from the turn of the century, and thought the only way to get what I wanted was to build it.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Looks more like a living room furnished with tools, the wainscoting really makes it nice. That is one beautiful space.

Awesome shop. You must have really good dust collection to have a TV in there.

Thanks folks, I appreciate your comments.

I got my dust collection unit for $100.00 from my friend BB. It had all the factory stuff and a few extra hoses and connectors. Looked brand new, all I had to do was a little 409 clean up.

As was typical of these type designs, it left a talcum-fine dust everywhere. This is the reason I got it cheap. Right after I got it, I read the article in Fine Wood Working, (FWW # 232) for an upgrade to this exact style single stage collector.

I did the Thien baffle and the Wynn filter, and it works fantastic. If you have this style collector, do what ever you can to at least read that article. This saved me from investing in a much nicer Onieda cyclone for the time being. Still the plan someday, but when I want to, not because I am forced to.

A very huge thank you to Mr. Thien, and the great folks a Wynn environmental. Super nice and answered all my questions when I called to order the Filter. Also included the heavy mil clear bags!!
