One of the few things that I have not built. I had an Amish company build me a 24×32 pole barn (that I call my workshop).

I have been collecting some tools since I started build my house. I went with the dewalt tablesaw, which has held up nice but really would like to have a delta or possibly the sawstop since my accident. Although I think the sawstop had something to do with my accident as I was looking at it 1 day before I cut my finger.

Anyway I am greatful for what I have so far. I think my next tools will be an 8” jointer and a 14” bandsaw.

Just started working on hooking up a cyclone dust collector (home made).

You have a nice shop in which to work. I really like the space that you have to spread out it and you have organized it well. Nice set of cabinets too. You have a good looking set of tools to play with as well. You really improved the performance of the drill press by adding the table.

I would enjoy working in there. Thanks for the post. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Thanks for the nice feedback. I just can’t wait to get rid of all the pine boards that are taking up about 10% of my shop. I got lucky with the cabinets. My office was converting a print/copy room to an office. I was able to snag all the cabinets.

I haven’t even used the drill press yet. I just got that used form someone a month ago. I got it to set up as a perm mortise machine (we’ll see).

Your shop looks, lots of space and well layed out. However, it appears that you are in Maryland and I would be very concerned about condensation on the uninsulated steel walls and roof in the winter. I have seen it rain in these buildings here.

Great looking shop. What do you have for heat and air if at all.

I like the small garbage can under the cyclone. How tall is the garbage can ? I’m working on geting a cyclone running too.

Thanks for the heads up. I have never seen any moisture on the walls or ceiling, however I do keep a good coat of wax on the tools though. I learned that the first year I had the shop. I came out one day and my TS was covered with a coat of rust. I panicked first and then did some homework and got it cleaned up and back to new. It was not on their more than a week so no damage. Since I have been spending most of my time building my house I have not finished the inside of the shop yet. I will eventually take care of the ceiling and walls but for now the basement comes first.

As for HVAC: I use a portable propane heater in the winter. Since the shop is not sealed I have not had to worry too much about the fumes as most goes out the ridge along with the heat. So far the only AC I have is two windows and two doors. It can get a bit toasty in the summer but I am up on a ridge and get plenty of wind to keep me cool.

The garbage can is from a previous DC that I had. I would say it is about 75 Gal. I have to convert my larger can to be used instead but again, too little time in the day. So for now I lost my brown trash can to support the little shorty.

Great shop, thanks for the tour.
