My shop is 20×20. I’m in the middle of a transition over to flat work from mostly turning. My next major tool purchase will be a 15” planer. My website will be completley redone soon to reflect the changeover. I haven’t touched the site in quite while.

If anybody’s on the fence about … whether to go to Sean’s home page … and look at his shop … do it.

Very cool blog about the construction, Shean, and an awfully beautiful shop, too !!!

It’d be great if you’d post some of those pictures here. I’m sure others would enjoy the tour, too !

Yep, great shop, most happy that you will get to enjoy that for a long time.
I designed and started a 16×20 10 years ago but many obstacles arose, now satisfied with having 1/2 of the 2-car garage to work it.
Thanks for the tour!

Sean, you certainly have put together a pretty nice shop. It looks to be well organized and you have a nice collection of tools to play with. I would enjoy working in there.

Thanks for the tour. It was fun to visit your shop.

KY, you really do have a very nice shop. It’s very clean and well organized and has lots of nice tools and equipment.

It sure is fun building a shop but as soon as I get something done, I figure a better way to do it so I’m always changing something around. The router table is better than I was expecting. Very solid and it has a great dust collection setup the way it’s built. It gets 99% of the chips and wood dust. When I can save up enough, I’d love to get a router lift. Thanks all. Sean

Sean: Thanks for sharing your shop with us, it is nice to look for new ideas, I see you are using PVC for the DC piping, have you had any problems with static electricity? Or have you don’t anything to ground it? A question on lathes, I see you use a Powermatic, is there any reason other then price you went with it over the OneWay? Anyway looks like a nice place to work. Steve in Oregon

I’ve never had any problem with using PVC and I’ve never heard of anyone having problems. I have no grounding wire on it either. Even if I had the money for a Oneway, I would still go for the PM. Don’t get me wrong, Oneway is an excellent machine but with the cost savings, you can buy a LOT of accessories. Have a Merry Christmas Steve, Sean
