Wow. Rick and I call this “the kitchen” .. and I really like the white paint. Everything is so clean/organized and right where you need it.
It looks like you have spent a lot of time and though in setting up the dust collection. We’re just beginning that process. You can be sure that we’ll be checking this out thoroughly!!
What a great shop Peter.

Thanks Debbie for your kind comments.
The dust collection system is the most important tool in my shop for it makes sure that I stay healthy. Wood dust is very dangerous to your health and it is often not realised.
I have just finished altering the 2 bag DC into a cyclone and I will featured the whole DC system in one of the installments.

that would be great—it would be nice to set ours up right – right from the start rather than slapping it together.

That’s a laboratory. You sure have everything neatly placed. I need to get more storage in my shop to do that.

build BB.. build!!
that’s my goal as well. I’m not much of a “housekeeper” but I would like everything to have it’s own little place. No confusion about where it goes or where to find it.
Then my workspace could be “creatively messy” with the storage all nice and neat: best of both worlds!

Looks like a professional shop! Very nice.
I guess the Mortise machine will be an installment as well?

Bill, the mortice machine is a small desktop type, Taiwanese in origin, which was too cheap not to buy, about A$230 with two sets of chisels and a chisel sharpener thrown in. I have used it a fair bit and it sure comes in handy.

Phil, during a major project the shop gets a bit messy, hence the need for a large workbench with vices at either end.
I normally don’t clean up at the end of a day. However, it never gets too bad, as I use the 10 tool item policy. Whenever I come in the workshop at the beginning of the day or after lunch I put away up to 10 tools not immediately needed and in no time everything is back in its place and thus readily available.

Da**. I can barely find time for a project. I have been told I am OCD but if you saw my shop during a project you would laugh. Please tell me you’re retired. Beautiful place.

Thanks Mike, not quite retired but very close, still work one day a week and I do one day a week voluntary work at a local op shop.
So my weekend is as long as most people’s day job. But I still never have enough time.

This should be the “dirtiest” area of you shop but I don’t see any sawdust at all. It is clean and well organized as the rest of your shop.
Thanks for the post.

That’s just way too clean. I bet you don’t work in there.
