I started building my shop in March of 2010. It is 26×20 with 10’ ceiling. The floor is concrete with 220 and 110 wiring to the table saw location and the island workbench. I also installed 4” dust pvc pipe in the floor to the tablesaw. The walls are 2×6-16” centers with R20 insulation. The ceiling has R50 blown in insulation.
I installed 8, 4’ double flourescent light fixtures with electronic ballasts and T8 bulbs, I also put wall lights on 3 of the walls in strategic locations.
As soon as the ground thaws (April 2011) I am adding a 26×8 addition along the east side.This is where my lumber storage, air compressor and dust collector will go. (the dc piping that goes under the floor to the table saw is already out there). I have a 100 amp panel with 3, 220 circuits with 6 outlets that I used 10 guage wire on, and 10, 110 circuits, I used 12 guage wire for all the 110 runs except the lights which are 14g.
Heating is a high efficiency wood stove that keeps it nice and warm, backed up by a wall mounted 2000watt, 220 volt electric heater, to keep it from freezing when I work out of town.
The workbench that is against the wall in pic 2 is a 28”x6” x 16’ glue lam beam that I got from a demolishion job I worked on, the beam was originally 32’ long.
Major equipment that I have so far;
General 350R 50” table saw 3hp 220v Baldor motor. Its amazing. Bought from Craigslist for $1200 mint.
Grizzly 2hp with canister dust collector
Dewalt 12.5” planer
King 6” jointer
Bosch 12” Dual Compound Glide Mitre Saw on custom built stand.
DIY Router Table with Porter Cable 2 3/4hp Router
Small bench top drill press
Craftsmen 10” bench bandsaw
Mastercraft spindle sander
Kawasaki portable air compressor
Beaver 36” lathe, that a friend found at the dump. New bearings and a motor( that the same friend gave me) and we’re spinning.
Many handheld power tools
As you can see I am still in need of some woodwork machinery. On the list is: floor standing drill press,
Grizzly 17” bandsaw,
Grizzly 8” Jointer,
Air filtration system,
and the list goes on and on.
