It’s still a work-in-progress but I’m having a great time getting it set up. It’s 30×30, insulated and heated with a radiant floor system (propane). Big thanks to the Lumberjocks community for so many great ideas and resources.

Ottacat, you should see it right now – not clean and less organized…

Wow, very sharp looking shop. I’m curious how well your dust collection works. I would like to make more runs like yours but I don’t want to loose too much suction.

DeltaDaddy, the system works reasonably well. At the end of the longest runs it’s not as good as I’d hoped but works. I put in a 3 way T right at the collector with blast gates so I can shut off the two runs I’m not using but I mostly leave them all open because I don’t think it makes a material difference. I’m headed out now to make some sawdust!

I like the idea of using metal siding for the ceiling. Any problems with that material?

No, AlStatman, the ceiling is working great. I’ve secured a few things and sheet metals screws have worked perfectly or I’ve gone into the truss if it’s carrying any weight. The workshop is in the front part of a Morton building and that was my only choice unless I wanted to do it myself (I figured I had enough projects already…).

You did a great job building and outfitting your shop. It’s a very warm and inviting workshop!

Thanks, mbs. I’m having a fantastic time “working” away. It’s such a great distraction to the real world and I always come in feeling happy and content after making some sawdust.

Beautiful shop. Really like the walls in the knotty pine. What is on the ceiling? And I like the polished cement floor. I had mine shined when they finished it.
