If you are wondering how a shop can be so clean, the answer is simple: its never been used. I finished the shop last week and moved into it yesterday. I still have alot of work to do: lumber rack, cabinets, etc… I am also weighing my options for dust control and hope to acquire a bandsaw sometime in the near future. Some of my smaller tools (disc/belt sander, and grinder) are still in the garage and will remain there until i get my cabinets built.

shop is 24X35X10
2 walkthrough doors
1 8X8 roll up door
4 3×3 windows
1 18000 btu a/c unit
14 120v receptacles
1 220v receptacle (200 amp load center) Plenty of room to upgrade and grow

Primary tool brands
steel city
porter cable

Now this is a nice looking shop. It has plenty of room in there, lots of windows (I am a big fan of getting natural light into a shop) and I would dearly love to have this much head room. You are in the fun stage now- building shop furniture and adding tools. I know you are proud of the shop- I certainly would be.

Thanks for the tour. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

I would love a woodshop just like that it’s about 30% bigger than mine is.In fact I would have it a little bigger say by 50%+ and make it into two workshops which I prersently own one for wood and the other for machining.So have fun your’s jealous Al. Alistair

It would be a dream come true if I could have a building like that to start my shop from scratch like a clean slate. It’s a great building for a shop and has plenty of room. You’ve gotten it underway and are certainly heading in the right direction. Congratulations.

Howdy from another Texan! Love that building. Great space with LOTS of headroom. Is that 18K BTU A/C going to be enough up there by Lubbock? I have less than half your square footage on the coast, and 14K BTUs sometimes doesn’t keep up…
