My wife said I had to do something about the dust in the basement. I said OK.

Very ingenious way of solving the dust problem in the basement. (: And a great looking shop.

Great looking problem solver! What are the dimensions? And are you planning on adding dust collection to this space too?

I hope you don’t mind, but I think I am going to borrow your clamp rack idea.. I am sick of my clamps being stuck to the wall…

Thank you for the compliments all. The dimensions are 16×24 w/a 4 ft patio on the front. I went very anti-basement on this. Ceiling is over 9 ft so my ambient air cleaner is out of the way,as much natural light as I could get away with(my dad thought I was nuts for putting skylights in) and when I’m out there during the winter months and night, I have plenty of fluorescent lighting and heat. In fact, I have too much heat. 4 220volt 6ft baseboard heaters. I only use two on low/med. The dust collection I’m looking at right now is the Jet 708642 DC-650. Because the shop isn’t huge, the hose runs won’t be too long for this to handle. I think I found the plans for the clamp rack here. http://www.scrgeek.com/woodwork/clampRack.html and I used the locking profile casters from Rockler. I did tweek the measurements on the bottom tray to make it more stable.

Jimmy;

Great use of your space. Did you build the building itself?

Thanks for sharing.

I did the blueprints and sketches for the permits myself and I had help building it. I am very fortunate to count a contractor, a very talented wood worker and a gentleman who owns heavy equipment as good friends. My wife helped me put up the drywall and finish it.
