Recently built an outside shed for the dust collector. In addition to opening up some valuable shop space, it’s a lot quieter and cleaner. The overhead sch 40 PVC duct was previously installed, and it was only necessary to turn around some tees to reverse the direction of flow. There are three 4” drops; one behind the bandsaw, one for the table saw and one for the downdraft table. There is also a 2 1/2” drop that connects to each of the five work stations in the middle of the floor.

There are two 20 amp circuits in the garage. All the woodworking machines are connected to one circuit since I can only operate one at a time, and the other circuit powers the dust collector and some convenience outlets. I’m very thankful for my wife who gave up her parking space for the shop, and also did the putty and paint job on the shed.

Thanks for your comments. My dad had a skill saw and saw horses. I’m still trying to be as skillful as he was.

Very well organized shop. You have a great view out the window too!
So what’s your secret to getting the wife to give up her parking space?
I strike out every time I try! :(

Good looking space. I am still negotiating with my wife to allow me room to work.

Also careful with that IPA on the router table hate to see anything start to rust. ;)

Have your say...
